• Kinzie Hotel Announces Launch of Exploratory-Themed Packages

    POSTED January 9, 2014

The Kinzie Hotel recently launched a line-up of exploratory themed, value-driven packages, with aims to stand out as the city’s most Chicago-centric hotel.

Opening in February 2014, the hotel provides guests the opportunity to choose from a variety of experiential packages, or caters to their individuals needs by mixing and matching selected elements to create a personalized guest package.

The tailored packages offered at Kinzie Hotel include the P.O.V. (Point-of-View) Package, the Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang Package, the Explore Chicago Package, the River North Scene and Be seen, and finally the custom-made package.

"Our goal was to create packages that speak to the hotel’s primary theme - an urban exploration that commemorates its namesake, John Kinzie," Dennis Igoe, general manager, said. "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."

The Kinize Hotel is located in Chicago’s energetic River North neighborhood and offers 210 guestrooms, five suites, and a Double Cross Lounge. In addition, the hotel is within walking distance to restaurants and shopping destinations, as well as minutes away from renowned attractions such as Millennium Park, Navy Pier, The Field Museum, and Schedd Aquarium.
