Great hotel, great location!

This was my second stay at the Kinzie. It is in a wonderful location, right in the middle between the shopping and the museum. Great restaurants surround it. The staff has always been fabulous. One of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in! Free drinks during happy hour, and they do continental breakfast on every floor. No walking to the lobby!

Wonderful Stay!

Our family had a wonderful stay at the Kinzie. The room was light filled and lovely! All the hotel staff were very nice and very helpful. The hotel is well located and easy to walk throughout the Marvelous Mile and down to the Loop. Excellent restaurants within easy walking distance. We will stay at the Kinzie again.

Inauspicious Start

Pros: Convenient location, clean rooms, comfortable beds.
Cons: Breakfast buffet would benefit from a toaster oven, or some way to warm up bagels and croissants. Better choice of fruit. Happy hour: grim. Music?
Location: Blocks from Michigan Avenue, Blue Line to/from airport, State St. and Art Institute within 10-15 min walk. Great restaurant choices nearby.
Hotel is well situated, close to all. Hotel occupies the first 6 floors of a high-rise; I would have preferred the top 6 floors! Chicago is such a magnificent city for architecture that it seemed a shame to enter a room and find it looked out on an old brick wall across an alley. We were on the third floor and there was a fair amount of city noise, especially early in the morning garbage pick-up in the alley. The windows didn't open and had black out shades that were hard to operate. The front desk staff were ok, but didn't seem all that knowledgeable about events or special exhibits at Art Institute, etc. The linens, room size, bathroom cleanliness were all acceptable.
