Kinzie ia next to the Trump and Langham Hotels. Excellent shopping, dining, and bars within walking distance. Staff is helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. There is no lobby to speak of, but there is great bar-restaurant next door. A better than average hotel happy hour and an average breakfast, both complimentary. This is one of a few hotels in Chicago that... More

Spending the night in downtown Chicago raised concerns over high prices for a room and for the car. The Kinzie Hotel proved to be a relatively lower price room although the car park was expensive. We enjoyed the hotel which was well appointed and newly remodeled. The entrance was small but the sign on the road made finding it easy.... More

I was going to be in Chicago for a week and the hotel had a great location. I called in house reservations and Katie, was extremely helpful. When I arrived at the hotel they had a specific room reserved, a corner with an amazing view; Katie had really gone out of her way. The room was immaculate and had recently... More

I spent the long holiday weekend at this hotel. What a great time!! Everyone (especially Monica at the front desk) were very friendly and helpful. The location is great, complimentary breakfast (on each floor) more than adequate and the complimentary cocktails and hors duerves an added treat.i would definitely recommend this hotel.

The entire staff was very friendly, from the doorman helping me in when I arrived, to the front desk answering questions and the cleaning staff was pleasant as well! The front desk attendant (wish I remembered his name) told me, "our motto is, We get it!" and they do get it! I had a standard room and it was very... More

I booked the best room they had for my birthday weekend to enjoy the entire Chicago downtown scene. I booked directly with the hotel website. They were doing a slight discount on the rooms for an unknown reason. Hotel was in a prime location. Only blocks from everything. Rush st, Mag Mile, etc..A few things were slightly off about the...

The Kinzie made us feel at home, from being greeted by Rafi and the rest of the doormen, to the perfect service at the front desk. The room was spotless, a must for the wife, and it included everything you could need...A quality view, a refrigerator, a Keurig coffee machine, and a comfortable bed.

The check in service is great and Rafi the valet and Drake the bellman are phenomenal. Rooms are very clean, updated and modern. Bedding is lovely and bed was very comfortable. Complimentary breakfast on each floor was an unexpected treat.
