A friend of mine and I stayed at the River Hotel on Wacker Drive on Friday February 24, 2012. We wanted to be close to Michigan St shopping, and we weren't disappointed. The hotel is within a block of Michigan St shopping, right across the street from the River, which made for a beautiful view from our 10th floor room at night. They have valet parking, which is cheap compared to most Chicago parking. They charge $35 for valet parking for $24 hours. I've seen parking in Chicago much higher.
The room itself was small, but beautifully decorated, well maintained, and clean. We didn't mind the size of the room because we spent very little time there. Also, you don't need to bring pillows from home because their pillows are the best pillows I've ever used in a hotel. Very nice and comfortable.
The staff was helpful, and we were able to check in very quickly.More
