The Kinzie Hotel has been recently renovated and is absolutely beautiful. The king room was spacious, the bed was very comfortable, and the furnishings were very nice. The interior designer who did this hotel did an outstanding job. All of the hotel employees were very friendly, courteous, and helpful. The location is convenient and within walking distance of many restaurants and shopping on the Magnificent Mile. Breakfast was included and is conveniently served on each floor near the elevator. My wife and I would highly recommend the Kinzie.

What a wonderful hotel with great customer service. We were completely satisfied and couldn't think of a complaint if we had to! The nightly reception had free drinks and snacks and breakfast although only a few selection, was still yummy.
There were many restaraunts and bars within walking distance. If you like pizza you have to try Lou Malnatis which is a 5 minute walk.

Very seldom we find unusual hotels with a different interior design, Kinzie Hotel may be one of them according to our preferences:
• Elegant interior design.
• Modern Architectural design.
• Centrally located.
• Courteous staff and flexible in understanding my requests.
• The value for it’s location was well worth it.
• The amenities surprised me in a positive way.

The breakfast area at each floor had a nice setup for self service, I picked up what I liked and went back to my room that had a well-planned breakfast area next to the window with a nice view!...fantastic!!!

Well done Kinzie…well done!!!

Room Tip: Top floors are always better in my opinion

Having stayed at The Trump right next to Kinzie, I can say that Kinzie is a tremendous value for its location. Kinzie has very modern and clean rooms. They have free appetizers and a drink per guest from 5-8pm on Sat. You can get free bottled water at the lobby if you ask for it. They even serve a very good selection for continental breakfast on each floor that is free! The location is central to Michigan Ave and State St shopping along with great theater and dining options. I definitely recommend this hotel!

LOVED our stay for my b'day. What's not to love? We valet parked our car, had a seamless check-in (sitting down in comfy chairs and not standing in a line), and arrived in a beautifully appointed room. Loved the map of Chicago wallpaper, and the cleanliness of the room. I felt so comfortable there. The chaise by the window was nice and comfy and our children enjoyed reading books on it. There were robes in the closet for my husband and I, which was a really nice touch. Also, guests are invited to attend a free cocktail reception where you can enjoy "happy hour" appetizers and drinks (first 2 on the house!). We then walked next door to the Public House for dinner (The Public House is FANTASTIC!). The next morning, for breakfast, imagine this: you don't have to go to the hotel lobby for breakfast! Why haven't other hotels grasped this concept? We simply walked to the elevator of our floor (of EACH floor) and there is (FREE) hot coffee, pastries, muffins, fresh fruit, donuts, cereal, etc waiting for you. Even their cable TV had a million channels (come hotels have just a few).Kinzie just "gets it."
