Chicago, IL 60654
The Kinzie Hotel kept the best part of its previous incarnation (Amalfi Hotel) – the brilliant idea of having breakfast available on each floor so guests needn’t get dressed to schlep to the lobby to grab some food, or worse, wear their wrinkled cheeks and jammies down the elevator. The complimentary breakfast, brimming with a variety of yogurt, pastries, breads and bagels, spreads, fruit and oatmeal, is available to all guests. The hotel is located in an enviable location near Michigan Ave. but still tucked away.

It’s not all about Michigan Ave. and the Loop, you know. Don’t let the name fool you – this boutique hotel located in the Lakeview neighborhood is steps away from eclectic dining and shopping and world famous Wrigley Field. The Best Western Plus Hawthorne Terrace, which National Geographic calls one of the best hotels in the city, has a complimentary breakfast buffet of breads and pastries, fruit, coffee, tea and juice, and during the warm months, enjoy it while sunning on the flower-filled outdoor terrace.
