Excellent location. It is within short walking distance of everything. There are plenty of 5 star restaurants, bar & grills, pubs etc. right on the corner. Just a couple blocks from Michigan Ave. and the "Magnificent Mile" shopping. If you are looking for a hotel that is in a great spot, this is definitely the place. A couple servers asked where we were staying when we dined out. When we told them The Kinzie they both said "very nice place" and "very convenient and close to everything".
The rooms are very comfortable. Our room on the 5th floor was recently remodeled. Very comfortable bed. Everything was new and ultra clean. The pictures of the rooms on their website are accurate. The complimentary breakfast is located on each floor and was adequate. There is no seating for breakfast so you have to take back to your room. Not that big of a deal.
The only surprise was the $56.00 overnight parking fee. Having said that, because of how convenient this location is, it is not too bad because it cost $4.00 an hour to park on the street at a meter...if you can even find a spot! We were able to check out of the room in the morning and go eat, shop and walk without moving the car. You can keep your vehicle in the parking facility until 6:00p of your checkout day. Also, you have in/out privileges at no additional charge should you need to drive somewhere further out.
Overall, our stay was excellent. No complaints. We will definitely repeat.
