About River Hotel, Chicago

Colorful hotel near Chicago River with free WiFi

In The Loop by the river

The historic, brightly colored River Hotel is on the north end of The Loop, across from the Chicago River and Chicago Riverwalk. The boutiques and restaurants that line Magnificent Mile are around the corner, and you’ll be 5 blocks from the State-Lake Metro Station.

Art and a park

A 15-minute stroll down the Magnificent Mile gets you to the impressionist and post-impressionist art housed in The Art Institute of Chicago. The museum is located within Grant Park, home of several landmarks worth exploring such as North Rose Garden or Buckingham Fountain.

Deep-dish pizza

Cooked-to-order breakfast is available for a surcharge. You can partake in a quick workout in the fitness center. The hotel’s bright colors and artwork on display provide a fun backdrop as you map out plans to make the most of your stay.

My room was located on the 32nd floor, beautiful view. Hotel was clean, my bed was huge. The hotel was in excellent condition. I’ve never been to a city out of state and getting out my vehicle in Chicago was breath taking. This hotel is directly across the street from Trump towers, and I had an awesome price.

Fun times
Overall it was really a nice stay, I just wish they had put online that it was two hotels in one building. They have the same hotel building under two names and two very different prices. It’s right in the heart and walking distance of every store you could want to go in

Conveniently Located
I was in the hotel only for one night since I was taking the Zephyr train to the west coast the following day. I wanted to visit the Art Institute of Chicago to see one of my favorite paintings, walk by the lake and visit the Millennium Park. The hotel is very convenient to all the places I wanted to visit . I took public transportation from the airport for only $5. The station the reception suggested was a bit farther than another that has stairs on it and which was within 3 blocks from the hotel. The room was quite small. Not as shown in the pictures. It had a small window overlooking a wall. I liked that they had a yoga mat and 3 different yoga programs that you could watch from the TV set. For the purpose of my trip, it was fine. They had wine and cheese in the evening. In the 2nd floor there were breakfast bars, fruit, and other items for breakfast and during the day they had other type of snacks.
