An excellent hotel in a superb location adjacent to the river and a very short walk to the shops on Mag Mile. Very helpful staff on arrival and checkout. Bedroom was comfortable and facilities were spotless. Would definitely stay here again.

Great hotel, amazing location, good size room for family of 5. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Anything we asked for was immediately sent up. Don't let other reviews put you off. We really did enjoy our stay here and would definitely return.

We really enjoyed our stay and service. We stayed there for my husband birthday and in small talk with the front desk they offered us an upgrade. We will be staying again. I also love they have places in the hall to refill your water bottles, that came in handy.

This has been my fourth time staying in this hotel and it’s always a delight. My likings: ~ Swift check in process ~ Friendly and helpful front desk officers ~ Surprising upgrades ~ Homey feels and comfy bed ~ Free refillable potable water in bottles The not so good: ~ Perhaps a bit of re polishing room furnitures ~ TV and internet receptions (they have been slow and poor) To wrap it up, it’s an overall best when it comes to customer service, pricing, basic hotel amenities and location. I will definitely stay here again! Oh wait, they should be offering some loyalty perks too for frequent guests like me😁

Stay away from this place. The cleaning crew is so loud screaming and banging down the hall from 8 am-5. I called to complain and they did it more. The place is filthy as soon as I walked in the bathroom sink had hair all over it and the counter tops were disgusting. Everyone is rude here. I lived in Chicago and still own a rental in the city and only stayed here bc my rental is under construction. I’ve stayed at a lot of hotels In my life for work and this is the only hotel I’ve ever been so disgusted with

The hotel was good - location and cleanliness. However, they charged a USD 100 charge upo check in which was to be returned in reasonable time. One month down and still no repayment. (Itinerary # 72640358561892)

The River Hotel on the water is quiet, no frills and a good value. A beautiful old-style guesthouse. The view is outstanding. Rooms are small and does present a challenge with organizing one’s belongings, but a very convenient location in the heart of the Miracle Mile. Comfortable pillows. Filtered water dispensers on each floor, a nice touch. Sleep is easy-to-come in this place.

The hotel is in a great position to access all the tourist spots, and the staff are fabulous. Our room was on the 12th floor. It was roomy and functional enough but the aircon was not working, which was really uncomfortable and stuffy especially at night. We were brought a fan but it really only moved the stuffy air around.. We had a great view. The lifts were an issue with one lift out of action for 2 days. The hotel has a great guest laundry. We enjoyed our stay very much but without decent aircon we probably wouldn't stay again.

Just what we wanted. Nice hotel in a central location. Great base for exploring the River North and Millenium Park areas. We booked the superior room with a river view and it didn't disappoint. Plenty of space. Nice to be able to pick up decaff coffee from level 2 on the way in. I wouldn't describe it as a luxury hotel but it's a great base for exploring the surrounds and good value. Lots of places nearby to get breakfast so not having breakfast included wasn't a problem. Staff were really helpful and were happy to store our luggage on our final day. I'd really happily come back here.

Room Tip: Use your room key to activate the lift! Took us a while to worth that out 😂
