    Incredible in every way - chelsea you're a dream!

    I’ll start with one word for those that don’t want to read a long review 😊 OUTSTANDING. Everything about this hotel, the staff, the food, the rooms, the experience…everything is truly outstanding. My husband and I got married here a couple weeks ago, and the Kimpton Gray made our dreams come true! We worked with Chelsea from our very first tour, and she is now my best friend. She is SO easy to work with, extremely attentive and responsive, and she genuinely wants to make your special day (weekend really!) so prefect and special. I cannot say enough amazing things about Chelsea Vaughn. The Gray is lucky to have her, and if you have the opportunity to work with her you are BLESSED! We love you Chelsea!!! The hotel itself is stunning, the marble staircase, the specific beautiful scent of the hallways, the gorgeous lobby, Volume39 bar, and of course the ballroom and rooftop lounge Boleo are stunning. I am not someone who loves a ballroom, but the Gray did it right. The chandeliers are modern and beautiful, the color palate perfect, and the carpet is not overwhelming. The guest rooms are perfectly done with beautiful lighting, nice finishes, and lovely bathrooms. They are everything you need, just much nicer than you really need 😊 If you are considering staying here for a visit in Chicago, a little staycation, or just for a drink – DO IT. It would be a mistake to not come here and partake in the magic! Don’t forget to bring your furry four-legged friend – they are so good to pets here and have accommodations for them without cost! A dream! Say hello to Mike upon your entrance, where he always says “welcome back” making you feel like family! If you’re lucky Sam or Paul will be there to help you bring your luggage up! They are the best!
    The second part of my review is specific to our wedding experience. Holy cow. This was an enchanting and truly unforgettable event, the very best day of our lives. We were married at the Gray on a Saturday evening, so we stayed the whole weekend at the hotel. We were treated like a king and queen, the staff so friendly, accommodating, and surprising us with small treats at every turn! Chelsea was with us every step of the way. She met with us multiple times leading up to the wedding day, was incredibly helpful during our final walk through, and helped make the day go perfectly. Clint also deserves a shoutout, he delivered an incredible experience (during the tasting AND the wedding!) and reminded me to eat my dinner which was a MUST. The FOOD wow wow wow Chef Brian is SO talented. I have been to many weddings where the food was medium. Here the food is 10 stars, it’s extremely delicious and the plates are just beautiful. Thank you Hugo for making dinner so fun with your fabulous smile and loving demeanor! The dinner staff was top notch, my guests commented to me on how amazing every member of the Gray’s team was. After dinner we had dancing with our band in Boleo. The cocktails were always flowing which was important to my husband, nobody was waiting long for a drink and the cocktails were done perfectly. They know what they’re doing here, especially if server Jesse is there giving your guests a welcoming smile! Boleo itself is a stunning room, and what’s amazing about the Gray in general, but especially in Boleo, is you do not need to spend money on décor, because the room already has everything needed to have your guests feel transported somewhere exotic and amazing!
    Everything about the hotel, the wedding experience from planning to execution, and the family/staff is utter perfection. I am so sad its over because I miss my Kimpton family, but we will be back for sure, on the regular for drinks at Boleo and Volume! THANK YOU GRAY from the bottom of our hearts!

    Book The Gray For Your Big Day!

    We recently got married at The Kimpton Gray Hotel and we could not have had a more incredible experience! We searched the city for the perfect winter venue. We went to 12 venues before going to The Kimpton Gray and as soon as we finished our tour we knew we were done looking and it was the one. From the beginning, Chelsea worked with us to make sure we had all of our questions answered and helped us create the perfect custom package for our big day. She was extremely flexible with the multiple changes that were made in the first few months. Danielle took over the planning process a few months later and she couldn't have done a better job. She was always eager to help us with any questions we had, she came to each meeting with excitement and hospitality. She was so attentive and made us feel like we were the only wedding she was planning all year. You really can't get better service. We had multiple guests stay at the hotel from out of town and we continue to hear how amazing their stay was and how impressed they were by the hotel. We were so happy to hear that our friends and family enjoyed The Kimpton Gray as much as we did. It truly was the perfect setting to get married. We plan to go back to the hotel every year for our anniversary to celebrate!

    Can we do it again?!


    We were married at the Kimpton Gray Hotel over Labor Day weekend, the perfect wedding weekend for end of summer and for brides and grooms who have out of town guests. It was absolutely the best weekend of our lives, and we just can’t recommend getting married at the Kimpton Gray enough. We worked with Chelsea, and she was absolutely amazing. She was completely on top of everything, extremely responsive to every question, comment, concern, or request. Our guests stayed at the Kimpton Gray for the weekend, we continue to still hear family and friends rave about the guest rooms, as well as the accommodating staff. My bridesmaids and I got ready in the Presidential Suite, which was overwhelmingly huge, had great natural light, and was very comfortable for us the day of the wedding. The groom and groomsmen got ready the morning of the wedding in the Robie Room, which was perfect and complete with flat screen TVs, a billiards table, and plenty of room to hang out. We had our cocktail hour in the 15th floor foyer, which was beyond beautiful, had our reception dinner in the Adler ballroom, followed by dancing in Boleo with our live band. Unfortunately, it did rain the evening of our wedding, so we were not able to open the rooftop to the Chicago skyline, but we did have guests who commented on the full glass ceiling. Our guests absolutely loved the food that the chef prepared for us, and Chelsea worked with him to ensure we were able to accommodate any of our guests’ food restrictions and allergies. We had anywhere from vegan-only to peanut allergies and gluten allergies, and he was able to make wonderful meals for all of those guests. Boleo in itself was outstanding. Our guests LOVED the décor, absolutely loved the mixed cocktails and the bartending staff, as well as the late-night bites and food that the chef prepared for us. We still have guests complimenting us a month later about the late-night sliders and the Old Fashion drinks, ha! We honestly wish we could have our wedding here again and again every year just to come back and do it all over again. Can’t say enough great things about Chelsea and her team at the Kimpton Gray Hotel. Absolutely we would recommend getting married here to anyone looking for a beautiful, unique venue with outstanding staff and amazing food and drinks.
