“Great Little Hotel!”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Our family recently visited Chicago and we opted to stay at The Kinzie Hotel after reading reviews on this website. It certainly did not disappoint. The staff are extremely helpful and room service is great. The hotel itself has a very modern, comfy feel to it. Furthermore, it is located in an optimum location downtown, cabs are always easy to find. Check in procedure was quick and simple. We were impressed by the quality of the rooms, they were extremely comfortable and the washrooms were very clean. I would highly recommend this place and if we happen to revisit Chicago, we are sure to stay at The Kinzie Hotel.

I joined my wife in Chi & her company put us in the Kinzie. It was super! Looked brand new & very updated. Great location downtown with access to transportation, restaurants, etc. The service was great; the concierge was very helpful & valets were very polished. They have free parking & if you call down a few minutes before you want to leave your vehicle will be waiting for you at the entrance. Very good free continental breakfast & free happy hour! What's not to like!

Location is perfect, you can walk everywhere and also close to train if you are flying in/out of town. Many restaurants around if you don't want to go to far.
Breakfast on every floor is great . Complimentary cocktail is a nice touch , nice place to go to at the end of the day. Staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms are great. I would definitely recommend and go back

We recently came to Chicago to get married & do some research for work ( I know, what an odd combo, right? lol). Decided upon the Kinzie from all of the positive reviews on here. Since we had a morning incoming flight, I called two days before hand to see if the hotel might be able to let us check in earlier, to make it easier on us. I spoke to Meg & she said that she would make a note & try her best. We arrived earlier than planned & when we came to the font desk, Meg (who I spoke with on the phone) was working. She kindly explained that our room was not quite ready yet, but she could call us when it was. No biggie. The hotel held our bags while we got our marriage license, ate some breakfast & did some exploring of the city.

We headed back to the hotel a few hours later & our room was up graded to a corner suite. We were so impressed by the awesome view of the city! We did a quick clothes change & headed out to do more site seeing. Before leaving, we thanked Meg for the beautiful upgrade. When we came back to the room a few hours later, there were chocolate covered strawberries, a bottle of champaign chilling & a very sweet note congratulating us on our wedding. I was so impressed that she remembered our conversation & took the time to arrange such a kind gesture. A class act, all the way. It made our stay & special day that much more memorable.

In addition to the first class customer service, the nightly manager's happy hour is also a great perk. I enjoyed a few tasty cocktails. We will for sure be staying here again & will spread the word to our friends. The Kinzie & its employees know how to do it right!

This hotel is in the perfect location to explore Chicago. The decor is thoughtful and modern while still very comfortable. We were in a corner suite with floor to ceiling windows with an incredible view. We will definitely be back every year!

Our family has stayed at The Kinzie Hotel numerous times (also when it was The Amalfi) and we have always been impressed. From family trips to Chicago or a weekend getaway for my husband and I, we have always had top notch service. The hotel is in a great location in River North, easy to get to everything on foot or by public transportation. For those driving, there is parking a block away. The staff is professional, courteous, and always goes above and beyond to make our stay memorable. Rooms are spotless, beds are super comfortable! We love the continental breakfast on each floor too! For anyone looking to stay in the heart of it all at a lovely hotel with affordable rates, The Kinzie is for you!
