Positive Reviews


Really great service provided by the staff.

Hospitality is high at the River Hotel. The service staff is always friendly and ready to help guests at any time to provide positive experiences.


Right in the heart of Chicago's main strip.

People staying at this hotel won't need a car to see all of Chicago's most well known attractions. Placed along the river in the heart of downtown, guests will easily be able to walk to Millennium Park, the Magnificent Mile, and many other highlights.


Historic building is well maintained.

While this hotel is located in a historic building, first time visitors will hardly recognize its age. The property has been well maintained while modern touches have been added and it is always cleaned to a high standard to create a really charming hotel.

Negative Reviews


Updates needed to the HVAC system.

One area of the River Hotel in need of some updating is the heating and ventilation system. Due to the older style of the building's heating and cooling, guests don't have access to temperature controls and can't adjust rooms to personal preference.


Not everyone will enjoy the size of the rooms.

Guestrooms at this hotel are a little small, and some guests will find the bathrooms challenging to comfortably use. This is an accommodation that is ideal more for tourists looking to explore the area over someone who wants to stay in.


A little pricey for some travelers.

Not every traveler will be able to afford a room at the River Hotel. Prices are designed to cater to a downtown crowd, and as a result aren't always suitable for visitors on a budget.
