Chicago is the theme at the Kinzie, which until 2014 was called the Amalfi. First, the name: John Kinzie was one of Chicago’s early settlers. Next, the art: The small, brightly lit lobby doubles as a gallery, displaying Chicago-centric art, like the work by a popular street artist and a portrait of the Brown Line made of duct tape. Each room has a map of Chicago streets covering the wall behind the ridiculously comfortable bed. Continuing the Chicago theme, room service is available from Harry Caray’s Italian Steakhouse, which is located across the street. Since the hotel doesn’t have an onsite restaurant (as of this writing), it hosts happy hour every night with a complimentary drink, cold cuts, and cheese. A continental breakfast, with coffee, juice, pastries, fruit, and yogurt, is offered on each floor every morning. Assessment: A good boutique option in a great River North location.
