    About this area

    Chicago

    In the city center, River Hotel is in Chicago's The Loop neighborhood, an area with good shopping. Michigan Avenue and Water Tower Place are worth checking out if shopping is on the agenda, while those wishing to experience the area's popular attractions can visit Skydeck Ledge and Navy Pier. John G. Shedd Aquarium and Adler Planetarium and Astronomy Museum are not to be missed. Our guests appreciate the hotel's quiet location for the nightlife and sightseeing. It's also convenient to public transportation: Clark-Lake Station is 7 minutes by foot and State Station is 8 minutes.

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

    Location was wonderful, and the staff was friendly and helpful. No restaurant or bar was the only main issue. We had a deluxe two bed room that was AMAZING!! I will definitely go back and recommend it to others.

    • Disliked: Staff & service, amenities

    Small rooms the size of a closet, window was covered couldn’t see a view of the city. They told me I couldn’t switch rooms because they were sold out but there were still rooms available online. No ice, only drink available was water. Not worth the stay

    Great Stay!

    The River Hotel saved us at midnight after our Air BnB fell through. The staff were so accomodating and pleasant. The room was comfortable and clean and it’s a great downtown location. If I’m ever back in Chicago I would consider this place over an Air BnB! Thanks to the staff for looking after us.

    When checking in they put us in rooms with full size beds instead of what we reserved. The rooms are very small and hard to move around in. The pictures make them seem a lot larger. The staff is nice.
