We stayed there for four nights. The room was remodeled and current. The bed was very comfortable. The free bottled water was very convenient and a huge plus. The front desk staff was very helpful with everything, especially Roman. The business center was great, printed out tickets and boarding passes easily. The location was perfect. It was close to everything. I will definitely stay here again!

I researched about a dozen hotels and chose The River Hotel for a three night stay in Chicago. The price was comparable, if not better than most of the other properties I was considering and it was on the river. I was going to ask for a room with a view, but before I even got to it, Pedro had taken care of it before he walked us through the self check-in kiosk. Thanks Pedro.
We stayed on the 15th floor and I loved the view. The room was as advertised, yes, on the small side with a queen bed, but I found it to be perfect for two. Quiet for sleeping and dark if you pulled the curtains closed. There is a 'guest closet' in the hall with extras like coffee, tea, blankets and pillows. The elevator could be slow at times, but not unbearable, there are a lot of floors for it to travel.

Room Tip: River view is nice.

The River is a fabulous hotel. The rooms are well designed, use beautiful fabrics,is well planned, extremely comfortable, have many electrical outlets, boast fabulous amenities, and the staff is best in all of Chicago,

Pedro, Brian, and Roman, especially, went out of their way to accommodate each guest and make everyone feel at home and comfortable. Their attitude was sincere and not put on ~ a welcome change from other hotels. Hotel Management should take note of these stars. And the other members of the staff are equally attentive and positive.

I cannot wait to return for another stay.

Room Tip: you can't go wrong with any accommodation.

We stopped at this hotel for five nights and it was excellent. We had a great room on the fifth floor overlooking the river. Our bedroom was very big and clean. Had everything we needed and the filtered water machine for filling bottles to take out was useful. Hotel is in a great location and everything in walking distance. Many thanks to Tim on reception who was always friendly and helpful. Would definitely return.

No complaints with this hotel. I booked a double suite and found the room itself to be clean, comfortable; nothing impressive but nothing to be unhappy about.

The location is superb, central to everything right by, obviously, the river.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front overlook the river, but if on second floor you may get sound from the outdoor res...

Great location. Free wifi, coffee, filtered/chilled water on every floor. Nice Italian restaurant and bar right downstairs. Pleasant and efficient staff. Room was clean and functional, not terribly large but who comes to Chicago to sit in the hotel room? Elevators were a bit slow. Very centrally located.

Room Tip: Ask for room with a view of the river.

The River Hotel was an excellent place for me and my fiance to stay in downtown Chicago. The location was easy to find, and was so close to everything. We parked our car in the ramp just a block away, and left it there all weekend because we could walk to every destination we wanted. The check in was fast and easy, and the staff was very friendly. The room itself was a little small, but that didn't matter because we were only there to sleep. The rate was extremely reasonable seeing as how we were right in the heart of downtown. Would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in downtown Chicago.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 22nd floor and had awesome views of the Chicago skyline.
