Great value for a great location

My visit got off to a somewhat confusing start as I couldn't find the check-in desk--turns out it's tucked off to the side of the entrance and easy to miss. Actually ended up using their self-check-in kiosk though which worked great. Once past the initial mystery of checking in, I was quite impressed with the place. Nicely sized and comfortable room with a nice spacious layout. The room even comes equipped with a variety of noise suppressing options (a nice touch for the location--I've stayed in many hotels in the area and the traffic noise from Wacker and Michigan Aves can be a bit loud at all hours). The hotel is a short walk from a few of the major L stations on the north side of The Loop and is centrally located along the riverfront, making it a very convenient base for exploring River North, the Magnificent Mile, Millennium Park and the Loop--basically you're smack dab at the intersection of all those areas. I'll definitely keep this place in mind for future Chicago visits--the price tends to be far better than other options in the immediate vicinity and just as comfortable.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

If you're a hockey fan, be sure to check out the official Blackhawks Store just around the corner at Wacker & Michigan. Cool store and great selection of merch, some of it exclusive to the store.

River Hotel - Chicago

Nice hotel. trendy, not out-dated, great location on Wacker Drive, just minutes from tons of stuff to do. Parking at the self-serve is $24 a night....just get it validated by the hotel first. Friendly staff who were accomodating to requests. We originally had the wrong room, and they changed it for us without an issue. the rooms are small....don't expect a lot of walking room....but otherwise a nice, comfortable place. Walls are not thin -- we didn't hear anyone in the hallways or the elevators.

Great location on Chicago River.

Normally I've stayed with a friend in Streeterville but he moved. Decided to go with River Hotel as its location is on northern border of the Loop w/ access to many more affordable cafes and shops. Being right on the Chicago River was a huge plus and allowed for beautiful walks along the esplanade over to Lake Michigan and Navy Pier. Professional, friendly staff and great room with view of the bridges and river.
