    Get a table with a kitchen view at their restaurant Sable. The lobby as a great vibe and is the perfect place for wine hour. Get a high floor room for great views. Nice pool too. Read more

    Best hotel in River North period. Location, rooms, service. Literally a block away from Nordstrom, Joe's Steaks and easy walk to all the hip joints on Kinzie. Plus the 17th floor pool and view.

    Great dining here. Sable Kitchen & Bar is a sexy, modern ingredient-driven restaurant from chef Heather Terhune. Plus, Violet Hour vet Mike Ryan is mixing cocktails. [Best in Chicago Hotel Dining] Read more

    If you call the internet support listed on the phone they will open up their network and allow you to use your Apple TV. You just have to give them your device's MAC address. Netflix in the room.

    Amazing, as all Kimpton hotels are. Every service point addressed.. Sable- restaurant onsite- has most unfriendly bartenders and obviously not being run by same customer thoughtful management .

    The rooftop terrace is a solid place to impress a new friend (no, not the Bachelor’s weird high school buddy) but keep in mind it shuts down at 10pm and is seasonal. Read more

    Great rooms, terrace and pool. Beware that most rooms on the penthouse floor are connecting rooms so you better hope your neighbors aren't 40 dudes playing poker.

    Concierge service is fantastic. Gave us a great recommendation on dinner and went above and beyond to make sure we got there and had an excellent experience. Thanks bobby, you are the best!

    The valet is a bit confusing... The driveway looks like you have to drive up onto a small sidewalk. They also can't recommend any other close garages

  • Jaunted

    Staying here? Free wine in the lobby in the evening, coffee in the morn, candy jars in between times. Tan on the 17th Floor sundeck that's secreted away at the end of the hallway

    Bring your swim suit! There's an indoor pool on the 17th floor with floor to window ceilings and breathtaking views of Chicago.

    Kimpton has outdone themselves again! Stunning rooms, comfortably hip restaurant Sable, and ultra hospitable and knowledgeable staff.

    Great hotel. Best service I have ever received. Nothing but smiles and class. Very reasonable prices to boot. Will return.

    Ask for a room on the top floors and away from the loud noise of State street. Views aren't as good but you'll sleep better.

    Amazing hotel but... Right by the fire station so ask for ear plugs. Aside from that, incredible overall experience.
