Description
A truly unique Chicago hotel experience! The Kimpton Gray Hotel takes its name from the building's original design and ornate marble throughout the building. Formally known as the New York Life Insurance More building, the building’s origin dates back to 1894. Our modern luxe hotel proudly shows it’s historic features juxtaposed against contemporary-styled guest rooms with crisp furnishings. Our location is ideal for both business and leisure travelers sitting in the Loop, walking distance from Millennium Park. Visit our on-site, in-the-know hangouts such as the sophisticated Vol. 39 for wine, champagne and caviar. Looking for something with more energy? Visit Boleo, the top-of-the hotel bar and lounge with retractable roof with Argentinian food and beverage. Still looking? Ask our team for recommendations close by! Less

As stated above, free for members, and I am pretty sure it is free to join the loyalty. This lovely hotel is part of the IHG, so it pays to join.
