We like to stay in the downtown areas of cities when we travel. Not having to drive to attractions is the main reason and staying at this hotel was perfect. Easy to get to from the interstate and free parking was a huge bonus. The hotel is old & beautiful. Our room had very high ceilings, old style black and... More

I loved the view but it was a small room.to have upgraded to a lake view room. Didn't have trouble with parking and was close to all the shopping needs that we wanted. . The museum was close and so was shied aquarium.

Not the Hilton but not $250 bucks a night either, it was a nice place to stay and was a reasonable rate, I will stay again when in town. They were painting the insides and fixing the place up, we stayed in the first part of May 2015 so I'm sure they are done by now.

The staff here is a 5 star staff. They are helpful, knowledgeable, courteous, and friendly. The hotel is older but kept up to date. The pool on the 7th floor is great. Its location is second to none. You can walk anywhere. The free parking is also appreciated.

We have stayed here many times as it is so convenient. Parking is included and feel very good security, You are able to walk to everything without taking public/taxi transportation. Rooms are updated and very clean.

It could use an updating but the service is excellent. It is close to everything I need to be close to and has free parking. We stay here every year for a conference. I recommend this hotel to everyone I know is coming to the conference.

I'm torn between 3 and 4 stars for this hotel. The location and the price absolutely cannot be beat. This hotel is within walking distance of a ton of great restaurants, the Magnificent Mile, and a lot of other wonderful downtown Chicago activities. As mentioned by other travelers, the parking is free (although I was told by hotel staff that... More

My wife and I stayed two nights at Best Western River North, Chicago. Staff was excellent, i.e., friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable but well used. Upgrades were currently underway at this hotel and I expect that the rooms will be much nicer when done. I would definitely stay here again. Great location...15-minute walk to Michigan Street, River... More

This hotel is perfectly located a short walk to the epicentre of Chicago. Most tours commence from the McDonalds directly opposite the hotel itself. There's fabulous restaurants nearby so the location really met all our needs. The staff are very genuinely friendly and obliging. Stephanie helped us when a well known tourist attraction fell short. My only reason for not... More

The hotel is in a good location where you can walk to everything. it's in the process of renovation but the room we stayed in was updated (the hallway and elevators were not) but we were not disturbed by noise or anything during the stay. Great value, especially the free parking relative to other hotels in Chicago.
