Overview

Occupying the first six floors of Dearborn Plaza, the newly re-vamped Amalfi Hotel changed its name to the Kinzie Hotel Chicago in February 2014 to pay homage 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 mismatching hues of the lobby signal a stay with a difference. Every room has an iHome docking station, the hotel s cutting edge fitness center is open round the clock, and in-room dining is provided by local favorite Harry Caray s Italian Steakhouse so you don t need to leave your suite to get your hands on prime Chicago chops. Get the concierge to organise an in-room hot-stone massage for you as an end of the day treat.

Romantic Weekend Getaway

Would recommend Wed, Nov 18, 2015
Definitely recommend staying at the Kinzie! Rooms are super clean, staff is friendly and its in the perfect spot to walk to lots of touristy attractions. Wish they had a real bar- the lounge is more like a cafeteria, and only open for 3 hours a day, but the continental breakfast on each floor made up for it! Will definitely be staying here again!! PS- The in-room robes AMAZING!

Great weekend getaway!

Would recommend Tue, Oct 6, 2015
I am so happy that I selected this hotel. The morning breakfast on each floor is so convenient, and I didn't have to get out of my pjs to pick it up. The nightly happy hour (which is included) is very nice. Each night you have one free drink and some very tasty appetizers. The room was a good size and had a very comfortable bed. Next time I am in Chicago I will be staying here!

Fantastic three day weekend

Would recommend Wed, Sep 30, 2015
This hotel is in a great location! Close to the river and close to the touribus. Just very centric! Staff was great, they can help you with recommendations for night and they can also book taxi for you. The room was always clean and spacious, i chose the corner room. the view is not the greatest since there are tall buildings everywhere but that's not the hotel's fault. I will come back definitely to this hotel!

Good price, good location. Even breakfast wasn't that bad. We had to go to lower floors to grab some bagels, but it wasn't a big deal. Like it. I will recommend my friends.

Great for a weekend in the city

Would recommend Thu, Apr 30, 2015
Kinzie Hotel is comfortable, well-maintained, and in a great location downtown. Breakfast selection was better than expected for a freebie. Although we didn't take advantage of the complimentary cocktail hour this time, this is another nice perk. Definitely recommend Kinzie if the price is right.
