Stayed in their City View King Deluxe room. Walked in the door and was greeted by the fantastic staff. After checking in and grabbing a premium snack, walked in to room which was very clean and views were awesome. We spent days eating, shopping and exploring. Literally was able to walk everywhere desired due to great location. Hotel itself was clean, has a great staff, plenty of extras to keep you and yours happy (breakfast, Happy Hour, premium snacks, etc) contemporary vibe and just overall comfortability made it a phenomenal stay.

We recently stayed at the Kinzie Hotel which we love great location , wonderful staff ar really nice rooms,free breakfast and happy hour..However when I reviewed my bill there was an extra $ 52 for evening fees. Now I have no idea what these fees include.so I went to the main desk and complained.The fellow at the desk was quite helpful and agreed to remove the fee..We will continue to stay at the Kinzie when visiting Chicago but will check our bills closely.

Rocky1948, I am delighted to hear that our location, staff, and amenities were highlights of your stay. At our property, we hold a nightly service fee each night of a guests stay. This is a mandatory fee which allows access to all amenities our property has to offer. The nightly service fee has a value of $50.00 a night and includes our continental breakfast, fiber optic Wi-Fi, evening managers reception, premium HD channels, concierge services, and access to the 24 Hour fitness and business center. We have this sent in confirmation emails and on every booking website to ensure transparency. When booking directly with the hotel the nightly service fee is $10 cheaper per night. I hope that this information helps clear up any worries you may have had. Thank you for taking the time to review the Kinzie Hotel. We look forward to welcoming you back again!

The location is excellent for central Chicago. Check in was efficient. The room was clean and surprisingly quiet for such a central location. Breakfast was simple but perfectly adequate. Our meeting room on the 6th floor was adequate but there was no men's bathroom on the floor. Men had to use the slow elevators to use the rest room. The women's rest room had two stalls. I had to wait in the hallway during the meeting at one point. There was one chair in the hallway and the 30ish year old AV guy took that chair and left this elderly women to sit on the floor! I found it weird that he did not get another chair for me or offer me (the paying customer, about 30 years his senior), the one chair.

Dear FayeJ42, Thank you for your lovely comments about your overall stay with us at the Kinzie Hotel. We are delighted to hear that the location and the check-in were highlights. We pride ourselves in offering the finest in these areas. We are also pleased that you found the hotel clean and the breakfast suited to your needs. I am slightly dismayed to hear about your meeting experience involving a contracted A/V technician. I can assure you that this is not the Kinzie team way of not offering a chair. We worked with a partner for this meeting and will be sure to offer the feedback from your meeting, in a bid to enhance the overall service that we and our partners provide. We thank you for your time and do hope you can sample the highlights of Kinzie on a leisure stay.

Faizal, the bellman, at the Kinzie Hotel was by far the best staff member that we came in contact with throughout the whole stay at the Kinzie. He was more than helpful, and went above and beyond to make sure we had all that we needed. If you stay at the Kinzie, make sure to recommend Faizal to assist you!

We really enjoyed our stay in River North at the Kinzie. A perfect location, our room was spotless, beautifully decorated and sound proofed. Victoria, our breakfast and happy hours (both complimentary) hostess, was wonderful!! Looking forward to returning to see her again.
