Arrived at the hotel and we were checked in within 5 minutes. Had the 2 room suite, room was very clean, had 2 climate controls, 2 bathrooms which were small but totally adequate, each had a hair dryer and very good lighting and a magnifying extra mirror. Although there were no doors between the 2 sleeping areas, they were separated... More

The River Hotel is a Club Quarters property, specializing in business lodgings. All of the rooms have comfortable desks and free wifi; full suites and kitchenette rooms are also available. My single room was compact and very functional, with lots of bathroom surface space, an ample closet, full-length mirror, in-room coffee and ceramic mugs. There’s also a gym; a clothes-washing...

Excellent location. Excellent stay. Affordable. Due to some Expedia booking issue, we got upgraded to a double room. Very clean and all the room amenities were provided. Held our luggage safely after checkout.

Our group of 4 stayed here early August. The location is on the river and is walking distance to all the landmarks and half a block off Magnificient Mile. There is a restaurant on site and a bakery around the corner, plus every imaginable restaurant within minutes walk. Our room had 2 bedrooms (very comfy beds) & 2 bathrooms, maybe... More

The River Hotel has the perfect location for getting easily to most of where you will want to go in downtown Chicago. It made our stay so easy because we were never far from "home". (If you are coming from Union Station, take a taxi, thought -- don't walk from there.) The downside is that the rooms are very small... More

I don't understand how there are ANY negative reviews on this hotel. The service was amazing, they accomidated to all of my needs with a positive attitude, doing whatever they could to be helpful. The location of the hotel was perfect, right in the middle of the city, in walking distance of pretty much everything. And the view from my... More

This unassuming hotel is well located for sightseeing, restaurants and views of the Chicago River and the river walk. The rooms are comfortable with basic amenities and free wi-fi but best suited for one person. A guest lounge on the second floor offers a large lobby, TV, computer terminals and an array of snacks, fruit, beverages. The highest praise is... More

We were able to check in early and stayed in a 1-bed standard room. Great ambiance. Loved the books to glance at by the desk. Clean with a free water bottle dispenser by the elevators. Close to good restaurants for breakfast lunch or dinner. Need to work harder on 2nd floor free coffee and snack area (may have been bad... More

In a nutshell: Rooms are immaculately clean, and while they may be a bit small, the space is well thought out, maximizing all space in the room. The rooms are modern and well decorated. The view of the river, both day and night, is gorgeous...be sure to take pictures! The staff is always very helpful. Pedro was eager to answer... More

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
