Was there in late June for the purpose of a business trip/vacation with my teenager. As everyone else has mentioned, the location is within walking distance of most attractions. We walked to Michigan Ave, Millenium Park (must see the "Bean"), Navy Pier (even walked back late at night) Gino's Pizza is down the block! Checked in and said the "secret... More

My husband and I took our annual June trip in the beautiful city of Chicago. The Best Western Plus River North made our trip perfect. We traveled via Amtrak to Chicago and took a taxi to the hotel. What a great location! The hotel was close to all of the attractions of downtown Chicago and even closer to the train... More

The best advantage is the wonderful staff. They are all friendly, personable, joyful, and helpful. They are more than happy to serve you. We were able to get discount tickets to Willis Tower, advice about the free trolley to Navy Pier, and they made reservations for us to the Wendella combined boat tour. We were able to park early in... More

We stayed in the Best Western for our first visit to Chicago. I would give it 3 stars if it wasn't for the location. It is setup nicely between the red, orange and brown lines, which can get you anywhere in town. Also there are so many places in walking distance, including Portillo's, Gino's East and a 2-floor McDonald's just... More

Enjoyed our stay very much. Beds and pillows were very comfortable. Curtains don't quite black out the room so some light does get in but this will only bother some people. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room very clean every day. Restaurant food and staff very good. Parking was valet parking so need to give adance notice for them to... More

Just stayed for one night, free parking, 2 free breakfasts with foursquare, great location! I have never stayed downtown and I was extremely happy with my choice. Rooms are nice and modern and the pool is nice and cool. Beds are a little small, and the elevators are slow and hot. Called ahead to the restaurant with my pizza order... More

This hotel has free parking and great location. The staff is friendly and helpful. I must have gotten one of the rooms that have not yet been renovated. My room was very small with a view of the alley at the back of the building. The air condition was very loud and the whole wall vibrated. The bathroom door was... More

We just returned from our 3-day family trip to Chicago, and we had so much fun!! When I was searching for a hotel, I wanted something within reasonable walking distance to the places we wanted to visit, not too expensive, indoor pool, and parking. This hotel captured it all and much more. When I read "free parking", I found that... More

It's clean, downtown, nice sized room, has free parking, & great service; what else do you need? It might not have all the frills & thrills of a 5 star hotel, but for the location & a third the price, you can't beat it. We stayed there for 3 nights & it's within walking distance (yes, we walked everywhere) of... More
