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.

Outstanding view.
The view was outstanding, but the room was a bit smaller then expected.

The staff was very friendly at check in and check out. They were very helpful as to where to find parking, the different options for parking, and also giving some information about the area. The room was small, but it was perfect for us since we were mainly out exploring the city. The only complaint I have is that the prices for parking are pricey, but the valet parking for this hotel was much more reasonable than the hotel that was next to us. We used the self parking garage around the street, which ended up being very close to the price of the valet parking offered by the hotel.

Great location, nice perks
I’ve stayed here a few times. Great location and great value. My only issue is that housekeeping isn’t consistent and sometimes misses things, but the front desk always corrects problems immediately when notified.

Excellent but no frills.
We enjoyed the hotel. It was basic but also had some nice little touches like a water machine with bottles that you could refill. There was a wine and cheese sampling the evening we got there. Overall it's a great location and close to public transportation.
