This hotel excellently located and has one of the best staff! From front reception to maintenance staff, they are all really friendly and warm! Our experience in Chicago is made sweeter meeting all these wonderful people at the hotel! My friend and I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. After 1 hour uber ride from airport and missing the junction to hotel, we were met by Mr Andreie from the hotel reception. A friendly face and warm welcome was exactly what we needed. Mr Andreie was really great - giving us a lot of advise on where to go, what to do, etc... We had a blast exploring places in Chicago based on his advise. The hotel bed was great though our room was really small. The air conditioning was not really working well. There was not much view either. Having said that the hotel was really strategically located, value for money, amenities are working superbly. We also like the idea that the hotel provide filtered water facilities and empty bottles to hotel guests so that we do not need to buy any drinking water from a store. Anytime I am back in Chicago, I will definitely choose the River Hotel!

Just big enough. Historic building.
90 year old building that used to be the tallest in Chicago, but as a result of its being one of the narrowest sky scrapers ever, only about 4 rooms per floor. No over crowded hustle and bustle. I guess the housekeepers are instructed to unplug the fridges. I didn't like that. Had to keep re plugging it in. Great location on the river and Michigan Ave.

Stay elsewhere. The dread euro wet room
What is the dread euro wet room? It's when there is no real shower. The shower is just a fixture on the wall of the bathroom. You'll see it in Europe where space is too tight for a separate shower. The water splashes everywhere. Messy, not clean, yucky. The river hotel has room but didn't bother putting in a tub or glass enclosure. Cost cutting? Speaking of, the shower controversy in the reviews, I can explain. The jet is as strong as a normal shower, so technically the water pressure is ok. The problem is the jet is less than half the size of normal - very narrow and the actual volume of water coming out is low. So it'll take twice as long as normal to take a shower. And thanks to the handicap bars and the shower curtain waviness you only have 2.5 feet of width in the shower, tight quarters for a guy. They should move the curtain out a foot, there's room. Sheets clean n comfy. Towels clean n rough. One wash cloth, one thin hand towel, two bath towels only! Near empty rough kleenex box. Only half a roll of TP. Dirty carpet and filthy chair. But, above average service people. I think you can find somewhere better for the same price.

Ideally located
location, view, room
I was there for a couple of extremely busy days so I can only comment on the location, lobby, elevator and room. On the highlights, the staff was kind, the hotel was clean and the rooms were a bit old but well functioning. The main point was the hotel's ideal location and the good value for money. My 2 nights very satisfactory stay as you have everything you need for a business stay and I therefore recommend this hotel.
