Stayed here when we were in town for a show. Decoration is nice. Room are very reasonably priced. Check in was fast and the staff are very friendly. They had a reception hour and they give you your first drink free. Staying here you won't be disappointed and it won't break you wallet.

Stayed here for the second time this year. Both times were wonderful! Check-in was quick and easy, the rooms were beautiful, updated and clean, the nighttime drinks and apps were great and the continental breakfast was wonderful! I cannot say enough about the Kinzie. Thanks for helping to make my trips to Chicago so memorable!

Great location, clean, modern rooms, kids thought it was fancy. Great price with Travelzoo. Small snacks and one alcoholic drink is included at the evening reception, (non alcoholic free) even for kids, but not really kid-friendly. More of a lounge atmosphere. great continental breakfast on your room floor. Juices, cereal, fruit, yogurt... Makes it an even better value!! Please check...

Newly renovated so everything is fresh. Valet service was very friendly but they do not automatically put it on your bill so it might be an issue when you check-out. Check-in staff was very friendly but it felt awkward to have to sit down for the quick process. The receptionists are sitting down and it feels like you are applying...

It was a nice hotel, we stayed there for 2 nights. They came and cleaned our room and changed our sheets both nights so that was good. Our bathroom had a hole in the ceiling and the lighting in the room wasn't the best but besides that it was a nice room and hotel.
