Check out the Exploratory Packages at The New Kinzie Hotel


The new Kinzie Hotel (20 West Kinzie St.) aims to stand out as the city’s most Chicago-centric hotel with its recently launched line-up of exploratory themed, value-driven packages. Opening in February 2014 in the space currently occupied by the Amalfi Hotel, the property provides guests the opportunity to choose from a variety of experiential packages, or cater to their individual needs by mixing and matching selected elements to create a personalized guest package.

Conveniently located in Chicago’s bustling River North neighborhood, Kinzie Hotel houses 210 deluxe guestrooms, five luxurious suites, and Double Cross Lounge. The hotel is within walking distance to famed restaurant dining scene and shopping destinations, as well as minutes away from highly sought-after cultural explorations such as Millennium Park, Navy Pier, The Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium, and more.

“Our goal was to create packages that speak to the hotel’s primary theme – an urban exploration that commemorates its namesake, John Kinzie,” says General Manager Dennis Igoe. “We’ve ensured that the personality of Chicago’s pioneer is woven into all elements of the hotel. Our guest packages live up to Kinzie’s intrepid reputation, which is adventurous, daring, and a bit mercurial.”
