Great Bday Trip

The hotel is very clean, has very nice staff and is in a great location. The room decor is nice and the beds are really comfy. There are a lot of great channels to watch when you are ready to relax. Everything is in walking distance. Public transportation is also within walking distance if you plan on exploring Chicago the right way. I would definitely stay here again.

Sightseeing tip: In Hotel

Pack your walking shoes! It's in your best interest to walk to where you want to go as far as you can withstand. You see a lot more and can discover really cool spots along the way. The river walk and city line are both gorgeous at night. Visit the Pier it's a really fun place to go in the day. Ride the trains some of the views are really nice.

5 star experience

I chose Kinzie based on all the reviews that I had read and was willing to spend a little more to celebrate my daughter's birthday. The customer service we experienced was the icing on the cake during our stay at this wonderful hotel. Your front line staff were amazing. We asked and they delivered!! We were able to get a room on the sixth floor. It was clean, very quiet and yes the beds were soo comfortable. Having breakfast just down the hall every morning without having to get dressed was something we had never experienced before . All the guests commented every morning what a treat this was. The complimentary evening cocktail hour was so inviting and great way to meet other travelers. The bar staff make up pitchers of different drinks that are actually better than the local bars. Hands down I recommend this place to everyone !! You will not be disappointed. The location is perfect - short walk to both the magnificent mile and the loop so ladies you cover the shopping hand down with this location. Definitely will book Kinzie Hotel on my next trip to Chicago -

Cantina Laredo - recommended by Hotel Staff . Great drinks, guacomole prepared at your table - You cant get fresher than that and the menu was healthy, well prepared and reasonably priced. Make sure you get reservations -contemporary decor- pretty busy place on Friday night.

Great weekend hotel

Location is great! Hotel was much smaller than I expected but it was clean, and the staff was very nice and helpful. The decor was not as fancy as I expected, and the room was rather small. Otherwise it had great amenities, including a complimentary cold breakfast buffet and complimentary cocktail drinks for our stay. I would definitely stay there again.

Wonderful one night stay !

Elegant, immaculate , lovely and what a terrific complimentary breakfast spread and cocktail hour feast . It's in a perfect location with easy walking access to main spots and L access. Drop dead quiet in the room and the king size bed was very decadent ! I went on business and definitely coming back this spring with my boyfriend for get away weekend at the Amalfi . BTW: the photos of the Amalfi coast all about the hotel are dazzling : being a first generation Italian, I loved the panoramic prints :-)

JUST A LITTLE COMMENTARY

THE BREAKFAST IS NOT REALLY GOOD, NORMALLY IS EMPTY WHEN I REQUESTED TO BE REFILLED, THE FRONT DESK LADY ??????SAID.... GO AND SEARCH AROUND IN OTHERS FLOORS. THAT IS NOT FAIR. THEY SERVE A POOR BREAKFAST IN EACH FLOOR OF THE HOTEL.

Great for our weekend trip

Overall, we enjoyed our stay here. There was a decent breakfast every morning and a cocktail reception in the evenings which we actually did not get to cause we were out enjoying the city. The room itself was very nice, in good repair but the heating/cooling unit in our room was very loud, maybe broken which got irritating at some points. We both slept very well in the firm bed! Our second day when we had come back our room had not been turned over as they usually do and the cleaning person was irritated when we asked for a couple new towels. But when we left for dinner they came in and turned over for us. The front desk staff/ concierge were great and extremely helpful. I would recommend this hotel to others and I would stay here again, cause overall it was a great stay.

Great staff and Location

We have stayed at this property 3-4 times in the past and the staff and location are excellent. We don't spend too much time in the room, however, the TV's or signal do need updating. The mattress in our bed was also getting a bit worn, in that the support was not there as I would have expected.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Park your car yourself two blocks west on Kinzie in the public parking lot on the south side of the street. You will save 12 -15 a day over other options in the area.
