My wife and I stayed here the last weekend in March for two nights. We wanted to be close to the loop area and not have to spend a lot to do so. This hotel worked nicely for that purpose. It is actually a very good location. You are close to all forms of public transit, so you can park your car in the FREE PARKING garage leave it there, Parking most everywhere else is about $22 for in and out parking. We bought a one day CTA pass for $5.75 each and got around that way. The hotel is within a block or two from some great places: Rainforest Cafe, Weber Grill Restaurant, Gino's East, Ed Dibevic's, Carson Barbecue (a must visit), The Hard Rock, Excalibur Nightclub, Sweet Home Chicago House of Blues, etc.
The rooms were not huge, but they were more than sufficient. It was very clean, the bed comfy and the service staff was good. We had heard a lot about noise issues, but never had the slightest trouble. The floors were a little creaky up on the higher floors, but we stayed on the second and they were fine. The pool is a little confusing to get to the first time. But there is decent workout room off the pool as well as a nice skydeck, with some good views of the city skyline.
Overall, we had a nice stay here and would probably go back in the future.
Will post pics soon.

This hotel is tops in our opinion. The service from parking to front desk to housekeeping to restaurant was the best. We could not believe the location...right in the heart of Chicago and near to everything downtown. The room was immaculate. Our friends who traveled with us had the same impression. We did not use the pool. We loved the fact that the parking and choice of four delicious breakfasts were included in the room rate as well. We've stayed here some time ago and I believe everything is even better that before...which was great then! The only adverse situation is the sometimes noisy neighbors and the usual sirens heard everywhere in Chicago. We stayed four nights. The internet was a bit slow and wireless only.

Room Tip: Book north facing room for a city view.

My husband, son and I stayed in Best Western River North last week for five days. We could not recommend it highly enough. The location is superb both for dining - lots of great eateries nearby - and catching the trolley bus for sightseeing. The staff were very friendly and could not do enough for us. Breakfast every morning was delicious with a good choice of food. They also do an excellent choice of pizzas and the restaurant is open all day. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful in booking tickets etc. All in all very good value for money, very comfortable beds and a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Will definitely stay here again when returning to Chicago.

My husband and I stayed here for an adult only getaway! This Hotel is within walking distance to everything! Right out our window was The Hard Rock Cafe and The Rain forest Cafe.

Free parking is great and they even allowed us to leave our car until 5 (after check-out)

We will be staying here again soon!
