Overall, a nice place. Friendly staff, nice decor, comfortable beds. I had a few issues with the alleyway noise and some sketchy Wifi service, but it was manageable. The free breakfast isn't gourmet, as listed. It is, however, a very nice treat. The in room Keurig coffee maker was nice, but I never had anything but decaf pods. I did... More

I pretty much said it already in the title. This is a lovely hotel! The staff is friendly and helpful. I especially like how they lay a great continental breakfast outside the elevators on every floor so that you can go grab coffee and bring it back to your room. Crab cakes are AMAZING :)

This hotel and really really lovely! It is not a massive chain type, but personal and Boutique like. The staff are fun, great at what they do and extremely helpful on all fronts!

Stayed here for a bachelorette party. The rooms are nicely decorated and come equipped with nice extras like a Keurig coffeemaker and pods, good bath items and anything that you'd expect from a nicer hotel. The location to the River north area is excellent and lots of restaurants, bars and shopping is a short distance by foot. There isn't much... More

I'm on the road a lot, usually in a chain hotel for conferences etc. so finding the Kinzie ( thank you Trip Advisor previous reviewers) to spend my weekend in looked like it was promising. Approach, look etc.: This property looks small on the outside. It is about 3 or 4 blocks from the Clark & Lake subway stop. There... More

My wife and I stayed 4 nights, Kinzie location was fantastic for dining and night life, as well as shopping all within easy walk. Drove to Chicago and the valet system was great, not to mention great on the Kinzie room-parking package (compared to other hotels a real savings). I believe them when Kinzie website states best prices come from... More

We decided to book this place knowing very little on a spontaneous trip to Chicago. Our experience at Kinzie was fantastic. The service was great. We came earlier than expected and were able to leave our luggage so we could explore the city until our room was ready. Our room was clean, the breakfast was conveniently located and much better...

I traveled alone for a week long conference and spent 4 nights at the Kinzie. Check-in was fast. I had a king room which had all the typical amenities, but it included a desk area with plenty of outlets, reliable Wi-Fi, and a couch with another little table for another option for working or reading. The room was clean when... More

It seems there is not a truly inexpensive place to stay in downtown Chicago. No matter where we looked, we were stuck with $200 and up per night. Well, for your $200, or even more, you'd be hard pressed to find a better place than the Kinzie. We were especially surprised at the size of the corner room, the quality... More

There are many hotel choices in Chicago, albeit most of them are in the higher price bracket. The Kinzie Hotel (formerly the Amalfi) remains independent and unique.Two things are distinct pluses. As mentioned elsewhere, the evening reception is a cut above most "manager's receptions," with generosity in food and beverage selections much appreciated. The complimentary continental breakfast is stationed by... More
