Kimpton Gray Hotel Information

Situated in the historic New York Life Insurance Building originally built in 1894, Kimpton Gray Hotel takes its name from the Georgia Gray marble that’s lent the structure a sense of sophistication for well over a century. The ornate architecture on the granite exterior and in the lobby — with Art Deco light fixtures — is juxtaposed against contemporary-styled rooms with crisp furnishings. Not to mention the close proximity to Chicago attractions like the Willis Tower Skydeck, Millennium Park and its famed Cloud Gate sculpture and Shedd Aquarium.

The hotel provides several guest room and suite options, each infused with a tranquil elegance thanks splashes of powder blue and textured gray. Each of the 293 well-appointed rooms features a large work desk, luxury bath amenities, refreshingly crisp sheets and a luxurious pillow-top bed. Picture windows provide city views that are sure to inspire. Pets of all shapes and sizes (that can fit on the elevator) are welcome and additional doggie amenities are provided to help them feel at home as well. Accessible rooms and features are available.

Guests love the signature Kimpton amenities like morning coffee service, an evening social and “Forgot it? We’ve got it!” travel essentials. Guests also love the on-site dining and socializing hangouts: Vol. 39, a sophisticated lobby bar with wine, champagne and caviar, and Boleo, the top-of-the hotel bar and lounge with retractable roof. Tour around the local neighborhood on a European-style cruiser by PUBLIC Bikes—complimentary during your stay. Other amenities include a 24-hour fitness center, spa services, a curated concierge and children’s book check-out. Both self-parking and valet parking options are available for a nightly fee.
