Occupying the first six floors of Dearborn Plaza, the newly revamped Amalfi Hotel changed its name to the Kinzie Hotel Chicago in February 2014, as a tribute to John Kinzie, one of the city's original settlers. Rounded corner suites mark the high-rise exterior out against the skyline, while the eclectic contemporary art and mismatched colors of the lobby signal a touch of the avant-garde. The hotel's cutting-edge fitness center is open around the clock, every room has an iHome docking station, and in-room dining is provided by local favorite Harry Caray's Italian Steakhouse. Ask the concierge to organize an in-room hot-stone massage as an end-of-the-day treat.

Neighborhood
A River North hotel, the Kinzie Hotel Chicago is surrounded by a hip night scene and a wide selection of art galleries in the neighborhood. Visitors can also access The Loop financial hub if they cross south of the Chicago River, and hop on the nearby water taxi for an awe-inspiring and traffic-free way to see the Chicago skyline. Two blocks from the river and just off of Wacker Drive, the Kinzie Hotel is across the street from the Museum of Broadcast Communications, which houses radio and television memorabilia as well as interactive displays.
Hints and tips
The property offers complimentary Wi-Fi access and continental breakfast each morning. 

For recommended eats nearby, try Frontera Grill or Pizzeria Uno on Wabash Avenue for a slice of Chicago's famous pizza-pie.

Great for Executives!

I went to Chicago for both business and pleasure, and this hotel was of great comfort. It had free breakfast from 6 to 9:30 am, and then from 5 to 7:30 pm it had cocktail hour. It is a great hotel if you are going in both business or pleasure, the only thing is that it did not have a pool. But Super Great Location!

The hotel is parallel to Habbough Street which is the entertainment street of Chicago. It has restaurants, clubs, and theater all in one street.

Best Value In Chitown!!!

Very nice boutique hotel. No Corporate drones, no huge crowds, no fuss, personal service. If you dont need to stay at a monster chain then this is an excellent choice for Chicago. Harry Carry's across the street has it all for food and drink. Shaw's House of Crab 1.5 blocks, House of Blues .75 blocks.

Seared Tuna at Shaw's is world class. Sausage and Peppers at Harry Carry's was a simple pleasure and outstanding meal.

Great afordable hotel.

This hotel is clean modern and easily comparable to any of the big chains. Great location. Best value for money I have had in a hotel for ages. Large modern rooms. Free wifi, free breakfast, free gym and free cocktails in the evening. The staff are also very enthusiastic. Altogether a very refreshing stay. Will definitely recommend this hotel to anyone going to Chicago.

More than I expected.

Lacking an expense account I chose the Amalfi based on Orbitz reviews and price. I figured, How bad could it be? It was excellent. Clean, updated, prompt elevators, quiet. Staff was great. Rooms bright and well furnished. What you'd expect from a mid-tier downtown hotel. Close to everything. Nice continental breakfast. Gym had plenty of cardio equipment. HDTV. No complaints to report.

Hotel is near lots of restaurants. If you're on business and want to avoid crowds flocking name restaurants go to Chili's - 2 E. Ontario, a few blocks away. Good friendly service, cold beers.
