We chose the River Hotel solely by internet research, based on location (directly on the river) and the architecture (I'm an architect). It's a quirky/cool highrise from 1928, that looks like a 40-story rocket...a seemingly secret gem that even the locals don't know about - right under their noses. Just steps from Michigan Ave, the River Hotel is really in... More

We stayed for two nights when we ran the RNR Half Marathon this past weekend. We were extremely satisfied about our stay. The room was clean, and we had the best view of the river! We cannot be more than happy with Tania at the front desk!! She was awesome, very helpful and accommodating. We will definitely stay here again.

I booked a small double room, so I expected it to be so, but it was more than adequate, and sufficient space in the bathroom. Although I was a solo traveler, two people could have coped ok with it, for a good price. It was clean, quiet and comfortable. There was complementary chilled water on every floor and on one... More

We just finished a four-night stay at a beautifully renovated room on 17th floor - rich-looking, tasteful and soothing decor. Housekeeping was great. The room was impeccably clean with small, but updated bathrooms. We had a fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. Aside from the nice room and upkeep, the hotel was notable for three reasons. First, the view from our... More

This hotel is so central and near everything you would wish to see. We had what I think was called a small double but it was plenty big enough for us. There were 6 in our party in 3 rooms and we all enjoyed our stay over Memorial Day weekend. I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants... More

My wife and I recently stayed for a mom and dad's night out. The room was nice, clean, and comfortable. It was just a little on the small side. Our view however was amazing overlooking the Chicago River. The rest of the hotel was nice and clean as well. The staff was all very friendly and helpful. Bonus point for... More

Great experience !!! First time in Chicago in a number of years, fun get away with friends. Pedro was helpful in getting us checked in -- great room with view of the river. Roman was most accommodating in locating a great Sunday buffet and setting us up with tickets to a fantastic boat tour. Our stay was most memorable just... More

We made reservations at the River Hotel for our first visit in June. We had been to Chicago for nearly 40 years attending an industry show and decided it was time for a change from our two previous favorite hotels. We were not prepared for the excellent care extended to us by the hotel personnel from our very friendly and... More

Stayed for 4 nights. Check in was great, thanks to Tania who was very helpful. Used the valet parking throughout stay and enjoyed the perfect location for the parks, Michigan ave shopping and walking. We took the architectural boat tour, that was practically outside our front door. Can't beat the window views.
