This hotel was a last minute find in the area that I wanted to be in. What a quaint, hip hotel. The front desk was very nice and helpful of where we could get something to eat close by. The room was very nice, beds comfortable, everything is up to date. They had a happy hour on our floor which... More

Where to start,I really enjoy my stay at the Kinzi. Its a very coint hotel. I had a view right by the window. But there is a super duper bad side, the room was super tiny and at times it felt confining. The location was equally amazing. It was totally in the middle of everything . I totally enjoy it...

I recently stayed at this hotel on a visit to Chicago and I can say it was fantastic. We arrived on St Patricks Day and the whole city was a wash with green! it was great to see and although the partying went on throughout the night in the city this did not affect my room, it was still very...

My daughter and I recently had a shopping trip to Chicago and stayed here. I have never stayed here before and overall it was pretty nice. The weather wasn't the best so I would say that shopping all the way down towards Water Tower Place was a challenge if you wanted to walk it. We did end up taking a... More

This was our second stay here, our first stay was about two years ago when it was called the Amalfi. We had a great stay last time and really wanted to stay here again. They've remodeled and it's really modern looking now. They kept the morning breakfast on each floor and the nightly happy hour... two features that we really... More

What a magnificent hotel! If you think that big city means that people are unfriendly and uncaring and impersonal, then you are wrong! The entire staff at this hotel went out of their way to make our stay extremely comfortable. We were in town for the pleasure of seeing Chicago for the first time. The location is excellent, the rooms... More

Stayed here for a long weekend in Chicago. Overall nice place to stay. Very clean room/bathroom. Always welcomed by doorman and staff on our return to the hotel. Very nice continental breakfast on each floor across from elevators with cereal, pastries, instant oatmeal, fruit, coffee, orange juice and milk. Only problem-- our room was 1 floor above street level-- noisy... More

We found a great price on hotel.com and they matched the price. In addition to the rate they do have a $62 valet parking fee, but still even with that, it's one of the best priced hotels in the area. It is about a 10 minute walk to Navy Pier, Millennium Park, Grant Park, and the Willis Tower. The city... More

This is a great little hotel, with first class amenities and service . The friendliness of the staff was beyond compare . We had just returned from a stay at a 5 star hotel in Hawaii and were more impressed with The Kinzie by far. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it!
