To me, River North is Chicago's Manhattan. I stay at the Sax frequently and have done so since it was the House of Blues Hotel. You get a sense for a place when you visit multiple times because you find out what is consistent and what is not. The staff is always consistent here, namely Richard who is your first experience if you're lucky. Richard works valet and bell and is the go-to guy in my opinion if you want to know where to go and what's going on. (If Richard leaves I might stop going). But the experience continues inside, front desk is always quick, staff is professional but warm. Rooms are the largest in River North for the price IMO. Between great room service and the wine bar Bin 36 downstairs this is my go-to spot. I have stayed at dozens of hotels in Chicago and Sax is the place I look forward to. With a good location right on the River and only a block or two away from all the top night spots in River North like Sienna Tavern, Public House, Trump and Hub 51...definitely worth a shot! Walk across the parking lot for amazing steak and seafood at Smith and Wollensky's. I could go on and on...obviously.
