Kinzie Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

My main observation is that our room was designed by someone who was good at visuals and very poor at function and comfort. There was not one comfortable chair in the room (there was a high chair). There was no desk. There only was a small circular table. The "couch" had no back to lean on! The bathtub was so slippery that I had to go out and buy a mat in order to take a shower safely. The hotel's written policy is that if you want a small microwave, you have to rent it from them at additional cost. There were no curtains; only pull up/down shades. The TV did not tune stations properly; the explanation was that 'we have a problem, and we are going to have a contractor look at it'. The hotel added a charge to account for "breakfast" and an early evening drink and nibbles. Mixed value is a fair description; the food was alright, but both ran out of key items several times.

Great location. Comfortable, clean room. Nice continental breakfast.

Enjoyed this hotel. Nice style, close to everything. I would stay here again. The room had a bad view, but it didn't matter as not in the room much. The evening reception is really nice. Strong drinks and good apps. The staff were excellent. We arrived early, hopeful they could hold our bags and the room was ready so we were checked in. Really enjoyed the breakfast in the morning. Well done. I did. It see/hear any children at this hotel, so may be more of grown-up place.

Nice hotel, good location. Breakfast was a nice perc. and also the happy hour tokens I got when I checked in. The only thing I could say that was negative was the bed. The mattress in my room badly needed replacing. It was lumpy and saggy. That being said the view of the skyline was FANTASTIC.

good location for theater and downtown access. Liked the noon checkout. Didn't like the nightly fee added on - since didn't use the gym or night cocktails.

The hotel is clean. The location is quiet but also centrally located. Excellent location!!

I come to Chicago once a year on business and always stay at the Kinzie. The room is a nice size, very comfortable and close to lots of great restaurants. The continental breakfast is great, a nice assortment of food and beverages.

I had stayed at this same hotel when it was the Amalfi years ago. You can't beat the location and the rooms are nice and modern. Great bonus is they kept the nightly happy hour with free drinks and yummy appetizers!

The front desk gives more of a high rose apartment leasing office feel. Excellent proximity to things downtown. Very nice staff. If the hotel considers a remodel I would love to be apart. The space has awesome potential to be harnessed! Very satisfied with the room!

Front desk clerk at check in was less than pleasant, but all else was stellar! Love the happy hour! Continental breakfast just enough! Will come back!

Great location! Close to many great restaurants and a great view of the city! Super clean!! Loved the breakfast right on the floor each morning. Free drink tokens were a great surprise! Wonderful staff! Great experience!

Came for a getaway with my 16 year old daughter. Although she came down sick, we had a great time. She loved the down town city view.

Overall good experience. Was a bit disappointed with the ongoing construction that took place right outside my window, but the staff moved us the next day.

Very pleasant; great staff and very helpful. They have complementary happy hour and breakfast.

Great room and free breakfast and happy hour drinks!

Staff was superb in all they did , from bellhops to checking in & more

I wasn't expecting much but was definitely shocked when my expectations were exceeded. The rooms are pretty and comfortable. The location is great as a tourist or if you're there for work. The free breakfast bar was a surprise and a nice welcome to the morning. They even gave me 2 free drinks at the bar upstairs. I wasn't expecting any of this.

Great staff! Nice room, good location, nice happy hour. Was a stain on bed spread and dishes outside our room when we checked in. Minor issues and would stay here again.

Lovely hotel in a great location. Good service, comfortable bed, nice decorations and even a good continental breakfast.

Nice hotel, very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed staying there.
