Excelent location

The hotel is very well located, just steps away from Michigan Avenue. Both subway and bus stops are a very short walking distance. Room is small, but clean and comfortable. Overall I felt that staying in this hotel was a good value.

Perfect Location, Beautiful View

The location of this hotel was within walking distance of everything a "tourist" would want to see -Great downtown vibe, the Chicago River steps away from the front door, and friendly staff. The only complaint would be the bed, which wasn't as comfortable as what one would expect, and there wasn't much shower pressure - but theses are minor things compared to the overall wonderful experience of a long weekend in the city. We would stay here again.

Perfect!

This hotel is the perfect location!! It is right along the river. It is only two blocks away from the subway and the bus stop is just around the block. Everything is within walking distance from here. I have stayed in Chicago many times, but always closer to the airport. The River is my new choice every time I visit the "Windy City".

Perfect Room in a perfect location

Business class with all you could ask for packed into one room. Pillows and comfy comforter were perfect and the sheets were soft. Staff is friendly and helpful. This is the second time I've stayed at the River Hotel and I'll be back.
