Loved the Kinzie Hotel! The room was spacious & modern. The bed was so comfortable & the dual shower was splendid! The check-in process was speedy & efficient. They also gave us tokens for complimentary drinks. Would highly recommend the Kinzie hotel & plan to return the next time we are downtown!

Great for a weekend trip. Room clean and petite but with all amenities (fridge, coffee, toiletries). Great location. Both valet and self -parking nearby. Restaurants abound nearby. Room service available. Lobby a bit cramped at times.

Thanks for spending your Chicago weekend with us! Love you enjoyed our rooms and added amenities to provide the comforts of home. Our valet is prompt and convenient and glad you found it easily accessible. River North has the highest concentration of restaurants in the city and so glad you could take advantage and hope our award winning concierge staff...

Room was clean and in decent repair but not great. Bathroom reeked of marijuana when we returned to the room after being out for the day. After paying all taxes and fees in advance with our booking, a $15/night service fee appeared which we were told was to cover the "complimentary" breakfast. Overall bad experience.

I'm so sorry that your stay wasn't up to standards and I hope with another guest causing issues we were able to identify and make the obnoxious smell stop and move you to make your experience better. We are definitely a 100% non-smoking hotel and we don't like anyone to be caused discomfort and don't tolerate any smoking or burning...

From the moment we arrived until we left, everything was as perfect as it could be. A very warm and pleasant welcome by the doorman and very quick unload and valet parking. Extremely pleasant check in at the open desk area and prompt escort up to the room. The room was much larger than I had expected in the city...

Nice hidden hotel with a unique feel to it. Staff was helpful. Only complaint would be the room view was right against a window but to be expected. Very well priced for the room. Within walking range of many things to do.

This hotel is relatively reasonably-priced in a very good location. The web-site's pictures of the rooms are quite accurate. Rooms are clean, bright, tastefully decorated and the bathrooms are quite nice. Nice, large tv and extra upholstered bench. Not sure I'd upgrade to "city view" again -- just looked at a parking garage. The wine reception is a very nice...

We enjoyed our stay at the Kinzie. We were able to walk to many restaurants and tourist attractions. The room was clean and comfortable. It was also spacious for a city hotel. It was nice to have the continental breakfast in the morning and especially convienent to have it on every floor. The evening reception was also nice- but the...

Great experience. Comfy beds. Perfect location- walkable distance to everything but far enough from the hustle and bustle to really enjoy a peaceful sleep at the end of the night. The staff is excellent. Will be back for certain!
