I was in town for business. The River Hotel is a great location with fantastic amenities, especially for the price. The newly renovated rooms are on the small side but more than enough space for two to share a room. The hotel can be noisy, so if you're sensitive to that, bring earplugs (they also supply these). If you stay... More

We kstayed at the River for 4 nights in April. It was the last stop in a nine week holiday of Latin America and the USA. We wanted something affordable and comfortable and well situated for a couple who had not visited Chicago before. It was all this and more. There were a host of small extras. Quality irons and...

Great location. Very business-like hotel but works if you are spending lot of time sightseeing and just need a room to sleep. Metro stations nearby, walkable to major city locations. Clean, modern rooms. Small TV. The room we had did not really have much of a view. You could see other buildings nearby from the window.

What a mess. The elevator had no lights. Our key card for the elevator don't work. It stopped 2 floors before our floor. We kept gettin off and switching elevators until the key finally worked. Our room keys didn't work. We were on the 23rd floor. The smallest hotel room ever for $170. It looked like a animal had clawed... More

There are lots of reasons to love this hotel: good value, great location on Wacker Drive, friendly helpful staff, temperature controls right next to the bed(!), super comfy bedding, sparkly clean room, a fold-out sleeper/chair for an extra guest, free chilled purified water (and glasses) near the elevators, and actual books at the desk in my room.

Here's the breakdown as per my title: GREAT LOCATION: You couldn't choose a better location. It is by the Riverwalk on E Wacker. Close to various Embassies and about $10 by cab to most touristy locations (Millenium Park, Navy Pier, N Michigan Ave, Tiffany dome) GOOD PRICE...but: The price was good (~$125 per night) but NO cancellations! So if you... More

River Hotel, a Club Quarters property, is the perfect spot for a business traveler who needs a home base in the heart of the Loop, or visitors who aren't going to spend all their time in their room. Comfortable, clean, new, modern decor. Great service and great rates!

The place is a little hard to find. We would have given it 5 stars, but when we called for directions, the person on the phone couldn't tell us where they were (they are on one side of a street that splits into two separate streets?!). We finally asked someone on the street for help. Otherwise the place was great... More

Do to a booking error on my part, I found myself, and 2 friends in Chicago on St Patrick's day weekend without a reservation. Tania Lynn, Guest service Manager, went above and beyond to ensure that we had a room. Even corporate office stated there were no rooms available, Tania was able to find a suitable room for us, and... More
