This used to be the Amalfi Hotel. I arrived for a meeting the next day after a long day of travel. The young man at the front desk welcomed me back though I hadn't stayed there since the time it was the Amalfi (nice touch). This hotel has attractive, clean, well thought out rooms. On every floor in the morning... More

This trendy hotel is located just 10 minutes walking distance from Michigan Avenue. The street has loads of restaurants on it, and the lounge in the hotel (on the 5th floor I believe) is a nice place to grab a glass of wine before heading out in the evening. The hotel was very accommodating with our check in and out.... More

The Kinzie Hotel proved ideal for a first sightseeing trip to Chicago from the UK, with its location just one block from the river walk, right behind the 'corncobs' of Marina City and the soaring edifice of the Trump Tower - great landmarks for orientation. There are plenty of good dining options nearby so no need to go far at... More

This is my first time in Chicago and I spent much time to choose the right hotel. And I was right in my choice! This hotel deserves the high rates because of great staff, wonderful cosy room with a perfect bed, bathroom and tasty various breakfast.The location couldn't be better.

My husband and I went there for our anniversary. The service was at the hotel was excellent. The room was modern, spacious and CLEAN! I LOVED the dual shower heads.

If all you care about it location, then this hotel fits. BUT: Lobby is small and if you're checking in at a busy time, be prepared to be pushed around. Everyone was having trouble checking in because they had reservations wrong, blaming it on the booking sites, but how can 4 different booking sites be faulty? Don't be sold by... More

Walking distance to most places- Millennium Park, Michigan Ave, Oak Street Beach, etc. Great local restaurants in the area. We stayed in a corner king room on the 6th floor. There was a ton of windows, but the light blocking shades worked great. It was a little strange when there were people working on a scaffolding outside the window, but... More

Great location, large elegant rooms, comfy beds, free WiFi, nice vibe, complimentary cocktails and breakfast. And at great pricing. What more could you ask for? A much better bet than the run of the mill Marriott Courtyards etc, that your would pay the same price for. Strongly recommended!

Outstanding and stylish boutique hotel in River North, conveniently located adjacent to the Marina City towers a couple of blocks north of the Chicago River. Walking to downtown is easy, there are several el stops close by, and the Gold Coast is easily reached by foot too. The hotel appears to be retrofitted into an office building. The rooms are...
