Thumbs up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great location, friendly staff, social hour, thank you for a wonderful stay.

being in the hospitality industry myself, I have very high yet comfortable standards when it comes to dining, customer service, and of course hospitality. This hotel exceeded my standards by 1000x! Not only was the first impression of the boutique hotel beautiful from the finishes and style, every single staff member we encountered was exceptionally friendly and helpful and they truly made our trip a whole. It was my boyfriend and I’s first visit to the city and the local recommendations from staff were truly incredible, from Coffee shops, to sight seeing, restaurants and more! The bedrooms - we’ve stayed in 4+ star hotels most of our careers and what a room! HUGE room with two large windows (although we requested the windows) the room was absolutely stunning. From the stylish sliding barn yard doors to the walk in shower and claw-foot style bathtub this room was an absolute couples dream. The bed a large King with pillow top and the most comfortable Bed I’ve slept on during vacation or traveling ANYWHERE. Yes anywhere. The housekeeping was always exceptional and were happy to take care of them at the end of our trip, our room ALWAYS smelled like roses! That’s not an exaggeration! We stayed for New Year’s and enjoyed The countdown in their lounge area because it was just so beautiful and perfect! We had such a good time we are looking to plan another trip back in August, and we are definitely planning on staying at The Gray again! 5 STARS 5 STARS!

By far my favorite hotel in Chicago. The staff was awesome, great location, the room was modern and clean. All around loved it here!

This is one of my favorite hotels to visit when I’m in Chicago. The rooms are nice and the staff is even nicer.

Very close to CIBC Theater. Clean. High quality. Uses text messaging system for valet, etc.

Cece at the front desk was very professional and nice, and it really helped the overall experience of traveling all day and just wanting to get to your room.

Great hotel. I will stay here again. The rooms were perfect. The bed was ultra comfortable.

In Chicago for the holiday weekend to visit my daughter and her fiancé. The hotel was very nice. Especially impressed with the staff. Very friendly and professional. Room was clean and lovely! Toiletries all smelled so yummy! Happy hour was a bonus! Love Kimpton hotels!

Clean, upscale rooms. Great service. Great location. A great value overall

I love the Kimpton brand. So much so that during this visit I recommend my manager to stay at the same hotel. Service is always good and the rooms are always clean & comfortable. This time I even had great drinks at the bar.

The Kimpton Gray is located conveniently in the Loop. Close to Lake Michigan, Grant Park, and the El. The lounge area is fantastic. We'll be back.

it was wonderful! Friendly staff and cute rooms. Was also able to check in a little earlier than the check in time.

Beautiful architecture, large room, very nice fitness center.

Hotel staff was incredibly accommodating for our early arrival. Hotel is beautiful and the happy hour is a delight. Thank you!!
