Very pleased with loacation and friendliness of staff. Helpful at check in. Great location to see the City or visit Moody Bible Institute. I stay here several times a year. It is a great value - not going to be pampered but I didnt come to get pampered. Safe, clean, friendly.

Was worried because the price and free parking seemed to good to be true. Both exceeded expectations. Was so pleased with the friendly staff, huge room and comfy bed. The view was fabulous and location perfect in proximity to my conference. Also thrilled to find that the owner supported World Vision, always great to support companies that give back.

I have stayed at this hotel for the past 4 years that I've attended a conference in Chicago. It has always been a great place to stay with friendly, helpful staff, clean rooms that are of a reasonable size and a small but nice dining room. It has always been an affordable price and is very close to some great restaurants that are within walking distance.

The staff at this hotel are hard to beat. As my hotel of choice when in Chicago, it is a "hard act to follow" . There is not a large turnover of employees here. The location is ideal whether it is your first trip to Chicago or you 100th. Shopping, sightseeing, sports and dining are nearby, or a short taxi ride.

My experience with Best Western has been always good, accurate reservations and good quality overall, I would recommend Best Western River North on Ohio Street unconditionally, especially the value of very decent protected parking included in the price, I have stayed at this location for the last 10+ years and have always felt the hotel accommodated to my needs and felt welcome every time!

We stayed here for 4 nights for a convention. The layout of the hotel is a little different, as the main building houses reception and the restaurant while the rooms are across the parking lot. The hotel offered free parking. It only has five floors, so there isn't any view. However, the rooms were clean and tidy, though a little small. The commute to the convention center was not bad at all and the location for the hotel was convenient for public transport. The community was great with many bars for "happy hour appetizers" as well as good, reasonably priced restaurants. The restaurant in the hotel, Pizzeria Ora" was great! It has a luncheon special for under $7 for pizza or pasta of the day plus a bowl of soup. In addition to free in room wifi, the lobby also had a computer complete with printer. Definitely a convenient place to stay while on business or on holiday.
