After a horrible previous night at a different Best Western we had to search for another hotel. Since we like this chain of hotels we found a room at this hotel. Although more then our budget we decided to take the plunge and stay here and happy we did. This hotel is location in downtown Chicago and close to so... More

My husband and I stayed at the best western for three nights. It was in a very good location and an easy walk to many restaurants, attractions, and the L. The hotel itself was a little run down and the elevators very slow/one of them out of order. We took the stairs most of the time. The room was a... More

Stayed at property before. Nice hotel & good value for location. Close to many venues and restaurants. Would like to see hotel go back to not charging to park. Maybe offering continental breakfast or snacks. Would stay there again.

There are two towers in this hotel that connect on the 4th floor only. Very inconvenient as you have to go to the 4th floor on a very busy elevator and then through to the other wing, then to another elevator to get to the pool/fitness center/roof top. One elevator was broken during this recent stay, which made it worse.... More

The hotel includes parking in the room fee which was a huge plus, but I'm not sure the $20 you save if you were to stay at another hotel where parking is not included is really worth it. The hotel is a convenient location, but it wasn't extremely clean, and our room was somewhat dingy. The hotel was overall ok,... More

Start with the positive...room was clean, bed was pretty comfortable, staff was friendly, restaurant was good. On the negative....I was in Chicago in May and paid $150/night for a hotel that was, hands down, WAY nicer and had much better amenities and much quieter and was located downtown! I thought the BW was WAY overpriced! The lobby's AC had apparently... More

The parking lot attendant welcomed us very warmly, The desk staff was very efficient. Our room was clean and the entire hotel was recently renovated. The elevator was quite slow, so we usually took the stairs. My daughter and I took a girl's respite and walked many miles as the hotel was well located. There was a restaurant attached to... More

I'm confused by the negative reviews talking about dank hallways, slow elevators and dirty rooms! Our stay was perfect! Our room was clean and huge. We never waited more than a few minutes for the elevator. (By the way, this hotel is only 6 floors so we used the stairs a lot). Cleaning staff were friendly and did a great... More

Stayed at this hotel for a ladies' weekend. Great location - we walked to our theater, dinner, & shopping. Never had to use our car or a cab. A very relaxing, enjoyable way to spend our time. Staff was very friendly.

Myself and my two teenage sons just had a very nice stay at Best Western River North Hotel last weekend! We were there to enjoy a lot of the usual sightseeing experiences, museums, shopping, the parks, etc. The price was great compared to a lot of other hotels in the area, and the location was fantastic for all that we...
