The hotel is very well located in central Chicago, no far from the river. The room I had at the very end of the aisle on the second floor was quite big and the bed very comfortable. Cleanliness was beyond reproach; a constant noise, however, was to be heard in the room and it was disturbing when trynign to get...

Maybe because they are doing some remodeling, the price was lower than surrounding hotels with similar ratings. The location was directly downtown within walking distance of millenium park and a number of great restaurants. Wi-fi was strong, the free breakfast was decent and in the evening there was a complimentary wine tasting. The fitness center looked like it had new...

I've stayed at this hotel several times for business trips, and as a former Chicagoan, I can say I feel right at home in my beloved city. The hotel has gone through a complete renovation and the rooms are large and inviting. The bed is really comfortable. Each floor has breakfast served in the morning, and the options are delicious....

This is the second time we stayed in this hotel,the first time it was known as the Amalfi Hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the breakfast buffet and evening reception is a nice touch. This hotel is very convenient to downtown restaurants and shopping. Very nice and comfortable rooms.

I came into Chicago for a one night Business meeting and stayed at the Kinzie Hotel. It was very modern with contemporary furniture. The Lobby was nice and they actually served their Buffet Breakfast right in front of the Elevator on each floor--VERY COOL!

I stayed here with my best friend for a weekend to get out of Indiana. We are very familiar with Chicago and visit all the time. However, we were deciding between this hotel and the Knickerbocker...needless to say, we should have stayed at the Nickerbocker. The hotel was under construction, but everyone we ran into was very friendly. The morning...
