I booked this hotel because it was my daughters birthday and she wanted a Chicago view. Unfortunately I did not research enough because this hotel only has 6 floors. I paid extra for a nice city view deluxe room. When we checked in the room wasn’t ready and they offered me a standard room w a window just not a city view. I mentioned I paid extra for a nice Chicago view, she then informed me they only have 6 floors. We decided to wait for the room I paid for. I thought she would say happy birthday at least to my daughter. Nada nothing. Very informal cookie cutter and robotic greeting. I was originally going to book a kimpton hotel where they always make you feel welcome and special I feel. We wanted to try something new. The hotel is clean, in a great location and they offer you 2 drinks for happy hour between 5-7. There is a coffee maker in the room with coffee and tea which was very nice. Breakfast was ok, yogurt, a granola bar and orange. Overall it was a nice visit. I just wouldn’t book if your expectations were a view of Chicago above the 6th floor or a personalized experience. Location is great though!

jenni932000, At Kinzie Hotel we take great pride in providing our guests with an exceptional, and seamless experience. I am disappointed to hear that this was not 100% the case and that your experience did not align with your stay needs. Please accept my sincerest apologies for the "cookie-cutter" checkin you received. I will be following up accordingly as this is not what our property is known for. This is certainly not typical of our property and I feel a one-off scenario. I do hope you give us the opportunity to serve you again as I feel like you did not receive a true Kinzie experience. Thank you once again for providing us with feedback about your stay as this is what helps us grow and learn. We wish you all the best and a Happy Birthday to your daughter.

We had a great stay! The location was convenient to everything! We found a great place for breakfast nearby (Yolk). The corner king room had a great view. Staff was excellent- Michelle was great and so helpful. When we come back, we will stay here again.

The staff was amazing and offered such great advice on tours and food options. The hotel is perfectly located for a lot of walking options. A ton of wonderful restaurants within a block or two. Shopping was close by as well. The only drawback and it’s minor, which comes from my builder husband, was they should fix the poor job of wallpapering in the bathroom. Too late to fix, but may we suggest doing it over with a better company. They did not do your hotel justice. It’s evident in other areas the upgrades were spared no expense. Just a suggestion. By no means would this keep us from coming back!

777gayler, First and foremost, thank you very much for leaving a review of our property. I am delighted to hear that you had a great stay with us for your birthday at the Kinzie Hotel. Our central location offers unique River North views and the convenience to walk to the best attractions and restaurants. We did have a faulty contractor that did the wallpapering in the bathrooms which at first looked nice but once guests started showering the glue started seeping through. We are in the process of hiring someone else to have this replaced sometime this winter/beginning of next year. Thank you once again for leaving an amazing review of our property, we hope to welcome you back again soon.

We stayed at the kinzie this past weekend and we were greeted by Arturo Garza. He was one the the most genuine and nicest person I’ve yet encounter at a hotel. He was extremely helpful with local restaurants, things to do, and even suggested a few of his favorite spots to visit. This experience made my stay more enjoyable and I was more welcomed into the city. Thank you for everything Arturo! Highly recommend
