Excellent choice for visiting Chicago ”
The location of this hotel is ideal for a stay in Chicago. The city is easily accessible on foot from here, with plenty of local cafes and restaurants, although the cost and quality of the hotel food is excellent. In addition the hotel facilities are very good with a pool and rooftop seating. The staff are hugely attentive and helpful. We loved it!
Great Location for River North Area of Downtown Chicago”
Excellent location for North River area of downtown. Rooms and amenities are very good. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Trains and a good variety of restaurants (Lou Malnati's Pizza!) are within a couple of blocks. Will definitely be staying again.
best western river north (chicago)”
overall, this is a great hotel. a huge bonus is that there's free parking if you stay at the hotel. also, the hotel is located within proximity to plenty of great restaurants and bars/pubs. our room was clean with fresh towels and bed linens, and the staff were friendly and helpful. a great stay indeed - would stay there again in the future!
Perfect accommodation in an ideal location ”
This was a well located hotel to get around the city whether by foot or train. The in-house breakfast was well varied. The desk staff were all very helpful and the two concierges we dealt with were always extremely well informed and went out of the way to provide advice, recommendations etc. The rooms were well looked after although as a Brit it would be nice to have the option of tea as well as coffee in the rooms.
The North River location is close to everything! The facility is undergoing some renovation, but is totally functional. The daytime desk staff is excellent!
Budget friendly hotel in Chicago”
Reasonably priced, 10 min walk from downtown, a clean and comfortable hotel room with free coffee and ice cream. If you expect extravagant lobby and club lounge and great dining experience, this is not your place.
Just what I need”
Non smoking hotel and no fridge in the room. But overall it was great.
It's...a hotel. That's about all that can be said.”
This hotel is clearly a bit tired, but it's sufficient if you just need a place to crash and don't mind being woken up in the middle of the night by a group of shrieking teenagers running up and down the halls for two hours. There is a pool on the top floor, which was nice. But the workout room is also on that floor and there was no ventilation, so when I tried to run I got dizzy and nauseous from the heat and the chlorine. So, if you're looking for a deal, it's fine. If you want to feel like you are at all enjoying a "nice" hotel, I'd recommend elsewhere. But it IS right across the street from a McDonald's and a Rainforest Cafe, so that's something.
Excellent location, lodging”
Staff was very nice. Excellent walkability. Many restaurants within feet. Can walk to about anything else including Navy Pier, museums, zoo if you’re not afraid to put in some miles. Rooms updated, very clean. Nice pool. The kids loved the free push pops and ice cream sandwiches.
Sweet Home Chicago ”
This hotel is well situated with good facilities. It is near to most of the main attractions such as Millennium Park, Navy Pier, Magnificent Mile etc. Staff very helpful.
Nice old hotel, excellent location, impolite staff”
The hotel looks rundown on the outside but it had nice interiors when you get in, especially the rooms. Rooms were spacious and well-kept. The hotel is near to everything. Just a few blocks away from Grand station (Red Line), near Hard Rock Cafe, Nordstrom and a couple of good restaurants like Portillos and Rainforest Cafe. It's a couple of blocks away from Lou Malnati's as well. My only beef with this hotel is that I was FORCED to pay a deposit (50usd a day + tax) and the hotel staff just swipe my card. No option for cash payment. Until now, they haven't refunded my deposit even though the front desk assured me. Emailed them a couple of times to no avail. So yeah, they SCREWED me over that deposit. Good bye 150USD. So f*ck you lady receptionist for not returning my money!
great experience with reasonable price”
It only took five minutes to walk from hotel to Michigan Ave. Free parking really attractive.
The staff was very nice and friendly. There was a awful smell in my room from the restaurant below. Staff gave me a spray but the smell still gave me a headache. The location was good with great places to eat near by. If you stay here just don’t stay on the back side of the hotel.
Great walking distance from city sites”
The room size was comfortable and the service was quick in terms of check-in and check=out, plus they offer free parking!
A nice place to stay”
Nice place. It is near to city center and few minutes drive to Millennium Park. Beautiful and clean rooms. Friendly staff.
Good Price and Good Location”
Will Book this hotel next time.....
Easy to get around from this location. Parking on site was a great benefit.
One night only”
One night stop over is OK. Basic hotel. Not much going for it.
Only like the location of this hotel”

Good location close to Clark/Lake (O'Hare metro line). Small, but good gym.
