“Good location”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

I to Chicago during the end of the year
I looked for places that had free parking in the hotels, the only one with an acceptable price was the best western River North Hotel.
The breakfast was ok, the room was comfortable for 4 persons.
There's a McDonald's right in front of the hotel, so if you feel hungry just walk across the street to get there.

We just get here and we stay in room 414 The keys didn't work so my husband had to go downstairs to change the keys, so I put the laptop bag on tags floor , do when he came back we opened and we forgot the laptop bag in tags hallway. Half an hour after that we realize that we forgot it outside the room. Guest what someone took it eather a guess took it or a housekeeper because they were cleaning the rooms. We require to see the video from the camera and they did not have cameras in the hall ways , so where is the security for all the guest???? It is worth to pay an expensive hotel Like this and they can not guaranty a good security for the customers .

Thank you for leaving a review for us. We're very sorry that someone took your laptop after it was left in the hallway. As we relayed during your stay, we checked our cameras but there was not a camera in that section of hallway. But I'll restate our promise that if a laptop, iPad, or laptop bag turns up, we will be happy to contact you.

Old sheets on the bed, barely functional bath, noisy and old air conditioner, extremely claustrophobic lobyy/reception/elevator. So all-in-all, its not worth the money I spend here but I had no other option as other good options were booked. Stay away if you can.

but this place was more than I expected. It's in a great part of town with an active nightlife and there are plenty of restaurants. To be honest, it smelled a little funny (like too much bleach), but was clean and I felt safe as a woman staying alone.

I would highly recommend this hotel for their quality of rooms and service. I was extremely satisfied with my stay here. Also, I have never had a hotel room that has two TVs and practically 2 large separate rooms, it was very nice!

Not Expecting much, but the room service was pretty good, as was the food. The bed was comfortable. The Wi-fi kept kicking me off, the rooms were pretty small, and the toilet didn't flush very well. Also being on the second floor you could hear everything on the street. All in all, a few small problems.

stayed here 3 nights. Great location and very helpful front desk staff. would recommend, but note that breakfast is not included like other BW locations (may be purchased at adjoining restaurant). One small item is that the privacy/black-out curtains did not completely cover the windows so I had to pin them together. FREE PARKING in their lot!
