Stayed here from the 7th to 9th April 2014 with two children, 7 & 11. We were able to take advantage of the hotel's reopening deal, which gave a good discount off the standard room rate. The room was very nicely finished and freshly decorated and the beds and bedding were very clean. There was good space and a little...

This property was transformed late in 2013 as the new Kinzie Hotel having been completely contemporized. It is an ideal location just a half block off State Street, just north of the Chicago River in the heart of the commerce, shopping, and tremendous restaurants this great city has to offer. I just spent my first night there as part of...

I planned a short getaway and came across Hotel Kinzie (formally the Almafi) wanted to have some couple time with BF and make some new memories sightseeing in Chi town.

A brand new hotel. The room is big and confortable but the only thing is that you have to keep the curtains shut, since there is another hotel just in front, and you can see their rooms. It is nice to have breakfast on every flor.

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.

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...
