Simply a low budget (but high price) experience. Room reserved was not available and absolutely no service or food is offered in case you want even the minimum of anything. There are plenty of other good choices in downtown Chicago.

We stayed at this hotel early this month...the location couldn't been better! Friendly casual yet professional staff and service. Amazing rooms with great views. I personally like the continental breakfast concept they have...quite original one! We travel a lot and would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone- either business or leisure :) THANK YOU KINZIE!

The rooms are lovely, the service wonderful, and the extras (e.g. drinks and appetizers each evening and continental breakfast in the morning) a real convenience. For those who want a location convenient to everything downtown Chicago, this is a great place. We'll be back!
