This hotel is located in the heart of Chicago. Can't do better in terms of a location. The rooms are small but comfortable. Note that there are no dining options on site. Our check-in went very smoothly and the doorman was very helpful in providing directions and procuring a taxi. Our room needed bedside outlets for charging our various devices,...

As being a guest in Chicago, you can afford the luxury of spending a couple of hours on the architectural tour through downtown Chicago. The first building they tell you about is the River hotel. Situated opposite the Trump tower, you get a feeling of the grandeur of the 1920’s, when the hotel was build. It must have had the...

It's all about location. The hotel is very well located. On one side there is Michigan avenue with lots of shops and on the other side the loop. It's basically a great spot to visit the city. Unfortunately the standard rooms are quite small, the sound of the air conditioning was unbearable (I turned it off). Although we have stayed...

This is a great location if you are on foot as we were. We had a comfortable room with a river view. We booked the small queen at the River Hotel, but It appears Club Quarters and River Hotel share the space and bookings because I believe we were actually in Club Quarters. No matter. Accommodations were superb. Frig &...

This was our last stop on our 6 week road trip from San Francisco - LA - Chicago. After all that travelling we wanted something with a bit more luxury than the motels we had been staying in but without completely breaking the bank. We found it at the River Hotel! Check in was a little slow as they seemed...

First of all, hard to beat the location of this hotel. It is centrally located to many attractions and shopping areas, plus being so close to the river makes it easy to take a stroll when you are just looking for some down time in the downtown.

The River Hotel is centrally located on the river in Chicago's famous Loop, within walking distance to awesome museums, restaurants, parks, and many other attractions. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The 2 bedroom, 2 bath suite was perfect for our girls getaway of 4 good friends. It was clean, well appointed, had a kitchenette. It was a great...

I booked this downtown hotel for a birthday trip at a very good price. Be aware that the River Hotel (superior size rooms with river view) is also the Club Quarters (tiny rooms with city views) Our room was super tiny but comfortable (the double bed was a bit small for two people) and the cleaning service was prompt.

Need hand rails in shower and ice buckets in each room. Schedule garbage pickup at a more reasonable time, not 6am. The location was very central to our weekend plans for both walking and taking taxis.

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.
