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 also indulge in Chicago deep-dish pizza at Bella Bacino Italian Bistro & Pizzeria or 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.

Free WiFi

The free WiFi in the contemporary guestrooms makes it easy to tell friends and family about your trip in real time. The rooms also feature premium bedding, iPod® docking stations, and LCD TVs to help you relax after a busy day in the Windy City.
