This is in a great location if you are wanting to walk miracle mile without the struggle of parking. Unfortuantely the rooms leave a lot to be desired. I honestly did not know they made hotel rooms so small. Parking garage.....there is none. However they will discount your parking fees a block away. Remember, you are walking a very busy... More

I choose the river hotel for location and price. It was a busy convention weekend so prices were three times the norm. I was aware that the small double rooms were in fact small but for one person it was perfect. The very clean modern bathroom is separated by a pocket door four feet from the bed. There is a... More

The room we stayed in was smaller than my daughter's dorm room! It felt like a small box with a queen bed stuffed in the corner. The walls were so thin we couldn't tell if housekeeping was knocking on our door or some other guests' room. The duvet had a mysterious dried white stain in the shape of a hand... More

Just realize this is not a 5 star hotel. At first glance it seemed nice, but the closer I looked I could see all the negatives. Re: check in, the guy never told me anything about the hotel such as there is a guest closet on every floor where you can get an iron. He also never told me that... More

We stayed at River Hotel in Chicago in October. We were quite pleased with the accommodations. When making the reservations, we had asked for a river view room. They couldn't promise but would see what they could do. Upon arrival we found we did not have that room but they graciously changed it to the side we wanted. We were... More

We stayed here for one night. Great location for the price! The staff was friendly and accommodating. The rooms are small, but perfect if you just need a place to crash after a night on the town. The beds aren't the greatest, and I'd find somewhere else to get breakfast other than the hotel. Pretty bad service and way over... More

I picked the River Hotel for the location and easy access to where I needed to go, and was pleasantly surprised by the excellent service and amenities. Courteous staff at the front desk, and lobby. I would have no hesitation to recommend this to friends and family. The only down side was being able to locate it on MapQuest and... More

We booked the River Hotel based largely on its location and lots of positive reviews. After one night we checked out and moved to a better quality hotel nearby. First the good things - location - central to lots of attractions, shopping, food - helpful, friendly staff - no street or internal hotel noise - tiny kitchen area, but poorly... More

Great hotel! The location cannot be beat! It's right downtown, across from the Trump Tower Hotel (in case you are having a hard time locating it like we did :)). Across the street is the Chicago's First Lady Architectural Boat Tours. The Cloud Gata (aka "The Bean") is less than 10 min of walking distance away (so is the Art... More
