A truly unique Chicago hotel experience! The Kimpton Gray Hotel takes its name from the building's original design and ornate marble throughout the building. Formally known as the New York Life Insurance building, the building’s origin dates back to 1894. Our modern luxe hotel proudly shows it’s historic features juxtaposed against contemporary-styled guest rooms with crisp furnishings. Our location is ideal for both business and leisure travelers sitting in the Loop, walking distance from Millennium Park. Visit our on-site, in-the-know hangouts such as the sophisticated Vol. 39 for wine, champagne and caviar. Looking for something with more energy? Visit Boleo, the top-of-the hotel bar and lounge with retractable roof with Argentinian food and beverage. Still looking? Ask our team for recommendations close by!
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
