This may have been the best hotel stay my wife and I have ever had. The small lobby has 2 persons sitting at a low desk. They function as both receptionists and concierges. As a concierge, they always have the right answer about visiting the sites or choosing a restaurant. And, there is never a line at the front desk... More

We recently stayed here from Fri-Mon. We were on the 2nd floor on the north side of the building. Didn't hear any bar noise.

We stayed at the Kinzie this past weekend. The room and hotel are beautiful, the doormen are super friendly. However it was impossible to sleep in our room as the noise from the bar behind the building could be heard through the walls even in the bathroom with the door closed. The noise stopped around 5 a.m. Not a nice... More

The Kinzie is a nicely located, and well run independent hotel in the River North neighborhood of downtown Chicago. Although it does not have a large lobby or amenities of many larger, chain hotels, it is a contemporary, attractive, personally-friendly and comfortable property. In the case of our stay, it was also an excellent value for the three nights that... More

We had a very good stay. Very clean, new furnishings, comfortable beds. In a great location. You can walk to most of the architecture gems along the river. No need to pay for the tours. Gym was ok. Could have used some resistance bands and an exercise ball, but adequate overall. Breakfast is continental and served on your floor to... More
