Location is superb, in River North, very easily accessible with public transportation, a short walk to the Loop, the lakefront, the Magnificent Mile, museums, basically all the tourist attractions, restaurants, clubs and shopping. Probably the best point. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Usual COVID restrictions--no maid service and very reduced food service and bar. But that's to be expected. I didn't use the fitness center, but was able to print out our boarding passes from a computer in the business center without any problems. Room is a little small, but very nicely furnished. Bed is comfortable, perhaps a little soft for my taste. Bathroom is large and nicely equipped. Free Wifi is fast and reliable; TV was good. It was one of those deals where you could watch Netflix on it, but the remote didn't work very well with it. Free breakfast is a nice idea, but the breakfast itself was dismal, food and coffee at a level one would associate with a cheap motel not a boutique hotel charging higher prices. The $16 per night "resort fee" (what resort, exactly?) was a sneaky way to raise rates. So, overall, pretty good, but not without some annoying features.

It was OK but nothing special. No better in any way than most 3 star hotels. Lots of little irritating issues. No maid service because of Covid yet they only supply 2 towels for the room even if you are staying 3 nights. 1 bar of soap so you have to keep moving it back and forth between the sink and the shower. Our room was on a floor with construction even though we made the reservation 8 months in advance. No restaurant. ++++ more

Nice Hotel in a great location. the proximity to restaurants , bars and pubs is outstanding. We have stay at The Kinzie multiple times and have enjoyed ourselves each time. They have adapted well to the current pandemic environment. We will return here on our next Chicago visit.

I had previously stayed at the Kinzie when they first opened and was impressed with the service, rooms and location. Unfortunately, in the 5 years since then a few things seemed to have changed and not for the better. Pro's: Location, location, location. You can easily walk downtown, to Millennium Park, the El stop and along the lakefront. Beds are comfortable, room is spacious and they now have a complimentary hour happy. Fairly clean. Con's: My room was a bit worn down with marks on the bathroom wallpaper that were noticeable, there was a small crack in the closet door, one of the blinds was broken/stuck so I had to stand on the couch in the room to get it pulled down. Only one elevator seemed to be working causing longer waits. The staff working at checkin/checkout weren't as friendly, when I asked them to hold my luggage while I went to get my car they seemed bothered. The WiFi was weak, the TV actually went in and out. My stay was only two days and while I did enjoy it I'm not sure I would stay here again until improvements are made.

Boutique hotel in the heart of River North. Excellent location with decent amenities. Evening reception with drinks and snacks and a decent breakfast. Room was comfortable and quiet with minimal street or hallway noise. Bed comfortable with decent pillows. No issues with bathroom water pressure or water temp. Still using individual soap and shampoo bottles. Only one working elevator and no stairway access was a downer. Valet parking a bit expensive but no hassle and was pretty quick. All in all pretty nice.
