Stayed here for a conference in Chicago - easy access to shopping and the pier (each around 20 minutes walk). Rooms very clean and plenty of restraints nearby. Pier was largely closed but plenty to see and do in Chicago. Would definitely stay here again.

Dear Steve, We appreciate your amazing review and rating of our hotel. Our location is world class and accessible to most of the great attractions in Chicago. It is very pleasing to hear that you squeezed in some quality shopping. A trip to Navy pier is always recommended and offers spectacular views of the city. We are pleased you were able to enjoy the city and we would absolutely welcome you back to the Kinzie, with open arms. Thank you.

We are delighted to hear that the special occasion was a big success and that you have found us to be a hidden gem in the city. We are in the perfect location in the middle of all attractions and just secluded enough to be special. It is amazing to hear that you loved our team greeting you every time and I cannot wait to share this with everyone at the hotel.

There are about three or four line items on the bill with different types of taxes... I think it all (resort fee included) to about $35/night. Valet parking will be an extra if you need that.

do you have any smoking rooms and/or smoking designated areas?
No we do not. We are very strict about being 100% all non smoking and have a $250 fee if any smoking is discovered. There are ash urns on the street in front of the hotel where people can smoke. Chicago has strict laws on no smoking.

Hello! Yes we have one suite on the second floor so it is best to call our in-house reservations to book this suite so they can check the availability and block it for you and your furry friend! You are welcome to leave them in the room (we have a limit of 2 per room but no weight limit) however we ask you place your do not disturb sign on the door so that housekeeping and our minibar attendant refrain from entering and opening the door where your pet could exit potentially. We also need a mobile phone number in case there is any distress your pet might be in that we can hear from the halls to call you. But other than that we have a gourmet in room doggie dining menu, great beds and bowls and a nice dog run a block from the hotel! We hope you will come stay!
