6 of us traveled to Chicago for our friend's bachelorette party. We booked the Kinzie hotel through Groupon, so I was a little apprehensive before arriving at the hotel (I read previous reviews and knew it was a nice place, but I always worry when booking through Groupon that we will be treated as second class). My worries vanished upon...

Clean, great service, nice people, excellent location! Stayed here with a group for a bachelorette party. Continental breakfast , cocktail hr are both complimentary so it was good for a big group because we didn't want to spend a ton of money on food each day. Great experience overall !

The Kinzie was recently remodeled and seems to me that every penny was well spent. The previous hotel was good but this updated version is great! I love the value you get with this hotel too...the free breakfast buffet on each floor, complimentary water bottle and free cocktail during happy hour are much appreciated! The renovated lobby and rooms were...

We recently visited Chicago to celebrate our anniversary. After searching for the right location and amenities we choose The Kinzie through Bookit. So happy we did.

We booked the Kinzie hotel through Bookit.com, who were offering a free room upgrade and two drinks tokens per guest for the evening reception for each night we stayed. Before we even left home bookit.com confirmed that the room upgrades would not be offered but, as the hotel was conveniently located and recently refurbished, we decided this wasn't a problem....

Reviewed 28 April 2014

The Kinzie has several assets: it's centrally located and has nicely decorated, fairly spacious rooms with comfortable beds and great central air conditioning. But (and it's a very big but), there is no kitchen/restaurant onsite. What this means is that the "free breakfast" is breads, cereals and oranges/apples. If you want a hot breakfast or if you're diabetic or gluten-free,...

This is a fine Hotel within walking distance of downtown. Clean, comfortable, quiet rooms and friendly staff make the recommendation easy. WiFi is free and worked well.

Advertised as a boutique hotel, I did not find this to be as boutique as I would hoped. Yes, the location is great and the quality is good, but for me it did not bring that extra charm you would expect. The breakfast is served in a buffet style on each floor and does not exceed the level of your...
