taste of Chicago

Would recommend Sat, Oct 11, 2014
We loved our time at the River Hotel. The room was quiet and clean, the internet worked well, the view was beautiful, and the location was absolutely perfect - next to the river, close to Millennium Park, public transit within walking distance. It was great.

Dining

For authentic Chicago flavor, we went to Billy Goat Tavern for their infamous CheezeBorgers. It is UNDER Michigan Ave, north of the river.

Would not recommend Tue, Oct 7, 2014
Not the best hotel for a couples weekend. The room was definitely smaller than average, but the bed, TV, and bathroom were tiny. We were only given one bar of soap, so that was supposed to be for the shower and the sink? The towels in the bathroom were ripped, thin, and small (detect a theme?). Location was great, but downtown Chicago parking is $58/night. I would avoid.

Great location and hotel

Would recommend Mon, Aug 11, 2014
The location of the hotel is perfect. It is just meters from the magnificiente mile and a couple of blocks from millenium park. The hotel itself is very good. Rooms are very new and clean.

Dining

There's a Giordano's thre blocks away from the hotel, on Michingan Ave. They close at midnight, great spot to get the famous chicago pizza.

Good value, Great Location

Would recommend Thu, Jul 31, 2014
Yes, the rooms are small. However the rooms are very efficient and have what you need....modern bathroom fittings and furnishings, a comfortable bed, good climate control, and a nice desk. It would have been nice to have a bigger TV, but we didn't book a hotel in downtown Chicago to watch TV. There isn't a microwave or fridge, but that wasn't a big deal for us. There was a nice in-room coffee maker. What really sells this hotel is the location - easy walking to Michigan Avenue shopping, State Street shopping and the river is at your doorstep (and a Starbucks just down the block). We didn't try the connected cafe/pizza place in the hotel but it looked like it was doing a good business. The other things we liked about the hotel was very reasonable overnight valet parking compared to most other hotels (about half their rate); and free wi-fi. This makes the reasonable hotel rate (for a downtown hotel) even better. Finally, some reviews have had mixed experiences with the staff but our check-in and check-out was very fast and with a very friendly staff member and any staff in the halls always smiled and said hi, so no complaints there.

Entertainment hint

Chicago's theaters are a short walk away, as is tons and tons of shopping and dining.
