if my guaranteed room had not been given away on the 1st night of my stay here I would give the hotel a 5 rating instead of a 4. The staff did find me a room at another hotel, gave me cab fare and hailed me a cab, so they recovered well from the mixup. The next night, I did... More

We came to Chicago for the weekend to see the Cardinals beat the Cubs ;) Check in was delayed by about 30 min, but with Harry Caray's, The Public House and Blackfinn within seconds of the Kinzie, we had no problem keeping busy while we waited on the room. Great restaurants/bars right around the hotel. About 10 min walk to... More

This boutique hotel is conveniently located to Michigan Ave. and the magnificent mlle, Millennium Park, and many restaurants. The rooms were clean, attractively decorated, and quiet. The late afternoon cocktail party with a complimentary drink and appetizers is worth making time for. There were also complimentary cookies at the front desk in mid afternoon. The breakfast was average and not... More

Initially, when we booked Kinzie through hotwire.com in a secret deal, we were a little skeptical. Nobody knew the revamped, renamed boutique hotel. But, we hoped for the best, and went ahead to request an upper floor, corner room. When we checked in, late at night, the receptionist assured us it was a lovely room. I squealed with delight. We...

We recently traveled to Chicago for pleasure. We booked this hotel through Hotwire and really scored BIG! This hotel is in a GREAT location. We felt safe at night walking around the area and it is literally blocks from about everything we wanted to visit. The hotel was updated and clean. The hotel served an amazing breakfast each morning outside... More

I stayed at the Kinzie last weekend in Chicago. I was on the 6th floor with a wonderful view. And right down the hall from the daily happy hour suite.
