Okay, first you should know the building is old, so it is not perfect - lobby is small, elevator is slow, amenities limited. If you want fancy and modern, go somewhere else. If you want great value, this is your place. We stayed on the 6th floor of the main building - request a higher floor, it is MUCH quieter.... More

Best Western River North was a great experience. It has quite a few restaurants nearby, plenty to see within walking distance or public transportation, a reasonable room service, and an indoor pool. The room was clean and welcoming with a nice bathroom. The parking was easily accessible and we were glad to have a package that allowed us in and... More

Good location is the only reason to stay here, the hotel has a sad look about it, it smells funky and unless you ask for it there's no cleaning at all. The staff does the bare minimum during your stay. The location is the best thing about it, very easy to walk or get transportation to restaurants and shops.

We had a group of 26 that went to Chicago for a weekend. Hotel accommodations were perfect, staff was extremely pleasant and accommodating! Clean rooms, courteous staff, good location, competitive price - what else could you ask for? I would definitely recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here in the future!

The location and the people who work there make this a very good place to stay when you visit Chicago. The staff is outstanding. The hotel is clean. The location is walking distance to "everywhere". The only down side is the loud air conditioning units in the rooms. The pool on the 7th floor is great for a family and... More

This hotel is older and under some refurbishing. Room and bathroom clean. Best hotel in Chicago for being centrally located, if you have a car the fee is $25/day- best in town! You can walk everywhere! The Hop on Hop off bus is across the street.

While it is still a great hotel in a great location, they have raised their prices and are now charging $25 a night to park. It used to be free. It is not a huge price for parking in downtown Chicago and I understand that, but when you're on a budget, that can add up. I do not have any... More

Good value friendly staff and close to everything downtown Chicago has to offer. We've stayed here for pleasure and several times for business. Room top pool is indoor with a great patio and view of the city. Always helpful staff ready to sort out your every need while visiting the city.

Clean and spacious rooms. When we stayed there were in the process of doing some renovations in the public and shared spaces but the rooms were already complete. Nicely appointed with modern design and amenities. Cheapest parking rates in the neighborhood is a huge plus. Awesome location and neighborhood. Walking distance to most tourist sights and shopping. Great neighborhood for... More

The hotel was a little run down in the public areas and the air conditioner and bathroom were outdated but overall the location and convenience made up for its downfalls. Free parking is another major perk of this hotel. It was clean, staff was helpful and it was easy to get around. I would stay again for business.
