I stayed here for my birthday for two nights. The location was PERFECT! Free parking, and wife was a major plus! The room was clean, and inviting. I really appreciated that there was a safe in our room. We enjoyed the pool, and the city scape view while we swam. The staff was friendly but it didn't feel genuine. All... More

They even wanted me to check the room and made sure that i liked it after changing the first one bc i did not like the highest level. No matter what, this will be the best and only hotel to... More

I stay at the Best Western River North every trip I make to Chicago because of the location, cleanliness, cost, and the fact that there is not an additional charge for parking. However, it would be nice if the 2 double bed rooms had Queen size beds instead of Full size beds. We also hoped that the Suite we stayed... More

We were greeted with great service, and the hotel lived up to every review that we read prior to booking. The location, FREE parking, and room made this BW a great value. The restaurant was nice and very convenient. We will look here for our next stay in downtown Chicago.

What a great old hotel. Staff is super friendly, all of downtown is easily accessible, rooms are nice, a few quirks but its all part of the charm! They are very accommodating of their guests and go out of their way to help you enjoy the city. Discount tickets for multiple attractions available at the front desk. For the price,... More

I have to admit that my first impression wasn't a good one... Parts of the hotel are being renovated and the whole building seems a little bit outdated. You also hear a lot of noise from the city and other rooms and the hallway. However, my husband and I are both very happy that we decided to stay here. The... More

Clean room, great service. Free parking included. The location was great. Fast respond when help is needed. The staff was also great. However there is a 20% holding on your account on the total amount to be paid for your stay.

Clean, Helpful staff and great location. The location is great, just off the strip. Can walk to everything in the area. This hotel does not charge to park overnight like all other hotels do. This saves you $40-$50 a night.

Our stay here was outstanding on all accounts. The staff and accommodations were fabulous and the FREE parking makes this THE best option in the area by far. We will always chose this hotel when staying in the River North area!

We have stayed here many times in the past. Excellent value. Free parking. Room was very clean. Very nice bedding. We were in a small suite and had a wonderful stay. Easy walk to State Street to look at the holiday windows; ice skating in the park; dinner at Millers Pub!! Many bars and restaurants within walking distance. Not to... More
