Well locared, well run hotel.
Enjoyed our brief stopover in Chicago between trains (except for getting heavily rained on while on the open deck of the hop-on hop-off bus. River Hotel very well located and we found it comfortable and well run. And it's in an interesting bit of architecture.

Fantastic location right on the river. Easy access to buses to get beyond the city and easy walk to everything within the city. Stayed in 2 bed, 2 bath apartment. Very comfortable and clean. Great little restaurant downstairs we used for breakfast most days

The River Hotel Review
Our stay was fantastic. The service was excellent. We called down to the front desk several times and they brought everything we needed within a couple of minutes. The location was awesome with an amazing view of the river and downtown. Great experience!

Good 6.0
Good and little blah
Day shifts customer service crews are awesome. But one bad-mannered night shift lady ruined our stay—Very unprofessional when dealing with guests query (Unaccepted in this kind of business). Our room is not as comfy as expected... not enough room to move around and so the bathroom. Overall stay aren’t so bad— 2 hrs late checkout is free, unlimited free purified bottle water, coffee and tea. Flat screen tv is great. Yay! 🙂
