the room is very nice. It's very modern and a bit on the side of a luxurious room. there's a Keurig Coffee machine. The room is relatively small, but I would say this is norm for downtown Chicago. I'm paying maybe $170/night before taxes and fees.

Location was excellent, right on the river within walking distance to other hotels, restaurants and touristic highlights. Hotel shares a lobby area with another hotel FYI. Check in desk is small but amenities are BIG. I was very impressed with this hotel. Parking was easy, not on site but very close and their website did an excellent job of explaining,... More

Above all, the perfect location. Close to everything downtown on the lower cost spectrum for the types of hotels around. Hotel was clean and comfortable with all essentials. Hotel staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. Only unfortunate thing is I believe most of the rooms have mediocre views, as we got stuck looking at a dirty wall for 3 days.... More

When I travel, and plan to stay for a time, I always look for short term apartments to rent or hotels with kitchenettes. So even though the price was higher then other four stars+ hotels in the area, I close the River Hotel to for my stay in Chicago, as it offered rooms with a kitchenette. In complete fairness, this...

Solid hotel with sidewalk dining. Room was adequate size and was clean and comfortable. Food was ok..nothing fancy. Great view of the city from the room windows. Location made it easy to get around and see the many sights. Transportation nearby and great restaurants within walking distance. Catch a quick breakfast at the next door Corner Bakery.

This hotel could not be better situated , right on the river a block from Michigan Ave. As a result it is within walking distance of most of what anyone would want to see in Chicago. The rooms are a good size , well appointed and clean. A pity the area adjacent to the elevator on the 14th floor wasn't... More

Excellent location, very helpful staff. I experienced several hotels ,in Chicago before and the River Hotel stand's out. I love the idea of having free access to filtered water located close the elevator...something I've never seen before. Also, the little coffee room at the second floor with the various candies and nuts ad's to the pleasure to stay at the... More

I thought the hotel was nice, but the check-in was different, because the check-in clear escorted me to a machine to check in. Granted they are trying to provide efficiency, but why have the staff go through the same process if I wanted to check in with a person? The room was clean and updated, but I got put into... More

Decent location for a business trip. Rooms comfortable, service could have been quicker as i required an iron board but had to wait until morning, other than that couldn't complain worth staying at would recommend.

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.
