Our family stayed here between Christmas and New Years and loved it. The rooms were clean. Breakfast in the morning was always great and lots of variety. The staff were always friendly. Location was great as well. We did like having the lobby not at ground level as we could sit around safely and look down at the streets. Their was also a great Eisteins Bagle Restaurant that you can access without going outside! My kids only comment is they wished there would have been Disney Channel or Nick on the TV!

This is absolutely the best hotel I have ever stayed in.
The suites were clean and well appointed with a full refrigerator and stove. The hotel offers free grocery shopping!!!!!
Beds were amazingly comfortable.
The staff is unusually accommodating and always pleasant.
I loved their work out facility which had a laundry just a few steps away. I could do my laundry while I was working out.

There is a breakfast buffet each morning and a manager's themed horsdoerves in the
evening with wine and beer which, often times was enough for dinner.
A selection of restaurants are attached to the bottom floor of the hotel. Many others are
within a short walking distance.
I would definitely stay here again!

Most reasonable price and ideal location between downtown State street and Michigan miracle mile stores, restaurants and sites.
Free full breakfasts which saves a lot of money and time before business or tours.
There is this very nice lady breakfast hostess, Ismeta, who we have noticed the last two years who is very gracious and attentive to every guest. She deserves our gratitude and the hotel's for her dedication and seeming love for her job and the hotel guests.

My husband and I traveled over the Thanksgiving Holiday and stayed three nights. The Residence Inn was consistent in their practices. We were allowed to check in early, we stayed in a one bedroom suite. The suite had a 2 TV's, a full kitchen and a bathtub with a shower. The rooms still "felt" new and everything was very clean. The suite is smaller than some of the other residence Inns but for the location in the City and the newness of the rooms, it was a great deal. Harry Carey's Restaurant is right across the street, there is an Einstein's Bagel right next door and the House of Blues is less than a block away.

They serve a breakfast in the morning and a "happy hour" with wine and beer and soft drinks and very "heavy" horderves. Many people ate that for their dinner. There was a small workout room and an indoor heated pool and jacuzzi on the 27th floor.

We stayed on the 24th floor and did not hear any of the sirens from the nearby fire station that some of the other reviews commented on. We flew in to Midway and took the Orange line and then we switched to the Red Line and we ended up walking to the hotel which was about 3 blocks away. It was easy to get to but it was a long, but not difficult walk with luggage. We had no problem. We would recommend this hotel to our friends and would definitely stay there again.

Just back from a wonderful visit to Chicago. Could not fault the Residence Inn in any way, the staff, the room, housekeeping, breakfast, evening meal/drinks reception (Mon-Thur) are all excellent, as is the Hotel's location for access to Clarke/Lake - blue line to O'Hare Airport and also for the sights. Incredibly easy to get around the city on foot from this fantastic hotel. Theater Land and the Magnificent Mile are only a very short distance away.
The hotel was in great condition and very clean and tidy. The bed was also very comfortable and the air conditioning worked well.
My wife and I were over in Chicago to celebrate my wife's birthday and we were very kindly given a free upgrade to a corner suite that had a lovely view of the city. We were also allowed to check out late as our flight back to Dublin was not until 7:15pm.
A fantastic experience from start to finish and I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is visiting Chicago. We hope to be back in Chicago some time and we will be staying right here in the Residence Inn Downtown/River North.
The gym is a real bonus and has a good view over the city.

Residence Inn can always be counted on for a good nights stay. Breakfast was as expected though a little crowded in the set up. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Location is great and close to many restaurants and theatres. Parking is expensive though convenient. Room was a nice size for downtown Chicago. Real blankets would have improved the sleep. As an fyi, booked my room on Orbitz and was told Marriott rewards may not be credited because I used a third party.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us at the Residence Inn Chicago Downtown River North. I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and found our location in the River North part of downtown to be convenient. Parking in downtown Chicago can be expensive, but we also offer packages that include parking. We found that booking with that package can make bringing a car downtown a little more affordable. Check that out the next time you stay!

Thank you, again, for staying with us. We hope to see you again in the near future!

The hotel is in an easily accessible location from the Orange Line (Clark/Lake stop) from Midway Airport. We couldn't believe how cheerful and helpful the staff were. The complimentary breakfast buffet offered healthy and plenty of items. The evening gathering of complimentary drinks and snacks was also generous. Our room faced the parking garage, no view but exceptionally quiet which is the preferrable of the two options. Easy walk to museums.
