Great time in Chicago!

Enjoyed the river architechural tour. Partied at the Cubs opening day ceremonies. Loved the Mattisse Art show at the CAI. Great seats at the Ford Aud. for Billy Elliot. Walked and walked the streets in the Loop and Mag Mile Ate at some very nice restaurants. Plenty more.

awesome hotel!

the room is fantastic with an awesome view towards the Trump center. The bathroom could be fansier, but with that price it couldn't be better!

Great Location and for the price

We went to a Cubs game. Great hotel with a great location for the price. The staff was helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and trendy. The shower was better than mine at home.

Sweet Location

Check in was fast and easy, the doormen were great. Ask for a river view, it's worth the extra $$ ($15/night for us). Hotel is on the river, the Magnificent Mile is a 2 minute walk, House of Blues is 3 minutes, Millennium Park is maybe 10. Will stay again. Oh, the internet service sucked. It was down most of the time I was there. If internet is unimportant, stay here. If it is a requirement, you may want to call and ask or choose another place.

Weekend in Chicago

The location of the hotel was perfect. You could walk out the door, and in a short walk,(depending on the direction taken) hit the magnificent mile, or the Chicago loop. The corner bakery, next to the hotel, is not to be missed, for breakfast (or a light lunch). Can't wait to come back to the windy city again.

Amazing Deal

For the amazing downtown location and quality of the newly remodeled rooms, this place is a steal. The self-service check-in is completely painless. Free bottles of water on every floor. Very short walk to all rail transit lines/the Loop. The perfect place to base a trip to the city, especially if traveling alone or as a couple. (Rooms may be a bit small for families). Yes, the rooms are a bit small. But it's downtown in a big city, and it's cheap! With only two elevators serving the upper 30+ stories of the building, you sometimes had to wait a while to get up/down. But this is a minor downside, forcing you to take a needed break from the fast paced city.

Though small, it didn't feel like it. Very nice view of the river and everything was spotless!

The River Hotel

The hotel is in an excellent location. With the exception of Shedd's Aquirium and the Field Attraction, everything was in walking distance. Our car needed to be jumped in the parking garage and the hotel parking staff was very accomodating. The room was nice but the bathroom had limited space. Overall, it was a great experience. Would definitely stay there again.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The Chicago Go-Card is an excellent time and money saver. With all the attractions seen we saved $100 per card. To save time, pick up the Chicago Go-Card the day before it's used.
