I stayed in this neat hotel during my visit to Chicago - which is my first visit-. For an instance, I thought I will not like it given the small entrance and front disk area. However, my experience there was more than positive. The hotel has a luxury lobby and a relatively new room furniture. The wi fi was free...

We were in Chicago for the play, Hamilton and found this little jewel centrally located between the theater and shopping. We parked our car when we arrived at a public ramp only a couple of blocks away and didn't move it until we left. We found the service, the accommodations, the fitness center, and the room to be just what...

We stayed here for 5 nights. Its bang in the middle of down town and almost all attractions are at walk able distances, be it the shopping district, food, museums or buildings of Architectural importance. The hotel doesn't serve any breakfast but tea and coffee are available at the first floor. Bottled water is free and available through a dispenser...

I will begin by saying that this was my second stay at this hotel. I first visited Chicago last year in March for my mother's birthday and I absolutely fell in love. It was only right that I return for my twenty-third birthday and that is exactly what I did. I chose the River Hotel again for three simple reasons:...

The room was very comfortable and clean. The TV was very small if that is important to you. The valet was very pleasant and delivered by car promptly. It was quiet and calm all night. I slept like a baby.

A gorgeous hotel, right smack in the middle of downtown Chicago. My family and I walked to almost every attraction we wanted to see. Our view was beautiful. The amenities were great, the staff was great, and the food from Bella Bacino's was awesome. The only negative was the mattress, but only because I have a bad back- my husband...

I liked this hotel so much, that I've stayed there twice in 6 months. It's across the street from the river and close to The Bean, on the Loop and a few blocks from the Miracle Mile for shopping. I plan on staying there again next summer.

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
