Stayed in a 1 bedroom suite with husband and 4 year old child for 5 nights. The suite was huge and had plenty of room for our little one to play without getting under our feet. The hotel has a great pool area and spectacular views overlooking Chicago River. The location was perfect for exploring all that Chicago has to offer with the Trolley tour stop across the road and boat tours 2 minutes walk away. My daughter's favourity memory of Chicago was buying Garrett's popcorn (Cheese and Caramel mix) which is around the corner from the hotel. The concierge was extremely helpful with tips for sight-seeing with a small child, which made our stay even more enjoyable.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Renaissance Chicago Hotel. The location can't be beat! It is on the Chicago River and our room was right across State St from the Chicago Theater. The room was clean, quiet, and spacious. The rate was very reasonable and a great value considering the location. We very much enjoyed the pool and hot tub. We would definitely stay here again.

Nicely positioned overlooking river. Close to public transportation. Large well decorated and clean twin room. Coffee machine in room. Reasonable price for the quality of the hotel.
Friendly and helpful staff.
Restaurant nice but menu does not change - thus we ate out most of the time.
Nice swimming pool & jacuzzi.

We could not be more pleased with our three night stay at this lovely hotel. It is the perfect location for walking to all that Chicago has to offer, from sightseeing to museums. Our riverview room was wonderful. What a great view to come back to every day & night. We highly recommend the nearby Shaw's Oyster Bar for great food, music & service.

Stayed here for NeoCon 2009 and can't wait to return. Great location, great staff, good food on site and the rooms were very clean and comfy. My only wish is that we had a room facing the river, but that was our own fault for waiting to book the trip.
