I booked this hotel through hotwire and was very happily surprised. We wanted a room close to the Magnificent Mile and we could not have found a better location.

The entrance is tiny and the hotel does not appear to be great upon entering (turn right after the street entrance to find the clerks).

The room itself is quite small, but very nice and clean. The bath room was also small but very functional. The average day time temp was 90F and the hotel AC kept up very well. The bed was very comfortable and had nice linens. We also had a room on the 22nd floor and we treated to an amazing view of the drawbridges on the river.

They have recyclable water bottles and water filling stations throughout the building. Very handy for the hot weather we experienced!!

The hotel is close to great restaurants (the Pizza at the onsite hotel was excellent as was the service!).

We booked well ahead of time to get our deal ($150/night).

Room Tip: Ask for a higher level floor and enjoy the great views!

Rooms arent the biggest of size, however they are very neat and easily do the job. Best thing that I found about this hotel is the location is very central, it is an easy walk to transport or to the main part of the city. Staff were friendly. Bit on the expensive side of things for what you get, but I suppose the location makes up for most of that. I would stay here again if I went back to chicago

We were pleased with this hotel. It is in a great location as you can easily walk most places on either side of the river. We booked this hotel primarily because the parking was cheap compared with other hotels. The parking garage is secure and only a block away from the hotel.
The room was clean and looked like it had recently been refurbished. As noted in other reviews the rooms are on the small side but for the price and being located downtown in a big city that's to be expected. If you want a bigger room then you'll have to fork out more, but for my husband and I it was fine.
Perhaps given the time of year the hotel wasn't very full but we were very happy that we didn't experience noise from either the other rooms or the street.

Across the street/river from Trump Tower, close to Millenium Park, Magnificent Mile, Willis Tower, John Hancock Observatory and downtown shopping. We also walked to Shedd Aquarium and Navy Pier. The United Centre (hockey/basketball) was 6 miles so it was a short cab ride.
We had a suite since there was three of us and we needed the sofa bed.Great kitchenette with microwave and fridge.
Clean and comfortable, the staff was friendly and helpful. We'll definitely stay here next time we travel to Chicago.

Having never been to Chicago before I wanted something central, so based on reviews on here I took a chance on the River Hotel. I was not disapointed. From the minute we arrived the staff were very friendly and helpful, and the room was clean, modern and very comfortable. The location of this place is it's greatest selling point, right on the river and central to all the tourist places. I loved the city and I loved this hotel, will be going back to both for sure.
