I travel to Chicago often and had the opportunity to stay over the weekend for a family trip. We stumbled upon the Kinzie. My wife, a hotel snob, was unimpressed because it is owned by Amalfi which is often less than 4 stars. However, we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel staff was very friendly and genuine. The accommodations and hotel... More

The location is simply great- all within walking distance: the river cruise, the park, magnificent Mile and all the great shopping on State street. there is a very nice buffet for breakfast.

This is a newly remodeled and former Almalfi (about 1-2 years ago) that was a surprising delight. Hotel is modern - which is not normally what I'd pick but I decided to give it a try. Rooms are spacious, clean, and the fact that there is a couch to sit on instead of the "single chair" in the room is... More

Stayed at this newly renovated hotel, in downtown Chicago. Room was decorated beautifully with upscale amenities, such as a Keurig coffee maker. Comfortable beds, and luxurious towels. Would stay there again when an occasion arises.

KINZIE HOTEL It had been a couple of years since we last stayed at the Almalfi. Always comfortable, classic and pet-friendly, we wondered how we would feel staying under the new name of the Kinzie Hotel. It was wonderful. New colors, a little 'snazzier' but the same fabulous customer service and attention to detail. What we loved and still found... More

Made reservation at lower rate straight to hotel. They matched hotels.com. I went to check out and they had charged me their standard rate. Front desk sadi they could do nothing and I would either have to call or come back. Very unethical. Learned my lesson to use a site to reserve a room so it is in writing.
