Horrible place to be the room. The room was tiny and hot. No view out the window. The bathroom was the best part of room. TV was a nice flat screen but the desk space was horrible

Hotel Stay

Would recommend Sun, Feb 23, 2014
I was really pleased with the cleanliness of this hotel. My room was small, but it was updated and spacious enough that I didn't feel cramped. The bathroom was large enough, plenty of counter space and a large mirror. Overall it was a very good deal for a student traveling on a budget.

Great downtown location & value!

Would recommend Sat, Feb 22, 2014
This hotel is right on the Chicago River. I had a beautiful view of it and the downtown buildings. Hotel is right off of Michigan Ave with tons of shops and buses. The room was a little cool and bathroom a bit small, but otherwise clean and comfortable. They provided nice complimentary filtered water in the hallways. The Italian restaurant on the first floor had very nice staff.

Great location and price

Would recommend Tue, Feb 11, 2014
This is our second time staying at the River Hotel and it's our new go-to hotel for Chicago. The hotel itself is nice and very clean. Our room was small, but it's not like we would have used more room anyway. The most important thing is that it was comfortable and clean.

Money saver

Use "Lyft" on your mobile phone for rides instead of taxi's! So much easier to get around the city and much cheaper.

Winter Vacation

Personnel were great and friendly from the moment we walked in the door. Room Service came semi early but that was only "issue." Other than that everything was great.

Great hotel for visiting Chicago

Would recommend Sat, Dec 14, 2013
The positive: The location is perfect, right on the river, within walking distance of the Chicago Art Museum, Millenium Park, Miracle Mile shopping, great restaurants, etc. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The attached restaurant/bar is very good. The room includes filtered water, a small fridge and microwave, coffee maker, and there is complementary coffee and expresso in the lounge. The only negative really was that there was an unsightly large tear in the couch in the sitting area. Not good for their image.

Dining

The newly opened Eataly, with many vendors and restaurants, is a fun outing.

Cold room

Would not recommend Tue, Dec 10, 2013
Room freezing, took 3 hours to heat after they changed the batteries on the thermostat! Vending broke on our floor, and they didn't seem to eager to fix it. Location in the heart of the city!

Dining

Chicago Cut was pricey and a little too loud to enjoy.

Birthday Trip

Would recommend Sun, Nov 10, 2013
Went to Chicago for my girlfriend's birthday. Checked in early and received a complementary upgrade. The location was perfect and the view from the room was amazing! The room size was generous, complete with a kitchenette, sleeper sofa, and desk. I also liked the filtered water and complementary bottles available. All this at an amazing price. I would definitely stay here again.
