    Great stay

    Although the room was small, it had everything we needed, including a fridge and microwave. The beds were comfortable (although we did find a sock that wasn't ours under the bed), the staff was friendly and helpful, and the location is perfect!

    Worth it! Great views and customer service!

    My stay from 10/08-10/11 was awesome! We were greeted upon arrival and during checkout. A young man (employee) during our checkout on the kiosk, asked us about our stay and was very helpful! Our room had a beautiful view of the lake and was just great! I will definitely be recommending to my friends and family!

    One day trip

    It’s a nice place. Needs to be updated a little but we only stayed for a night so it was good. The staff is friendly and very helpful.

    Great find!

    Lots of hotels options in the area, the River Hotel was a great location and value. We did not care for having to move our car to a lot the second day of our stay but didn’t let that overshadow the trip. Ronnie was a gem and very knowledgeable and welcoming. We also enjoyed the “good coffee” on the 2nd floor, refillable purified water bottles, and 5 pages of printed restaurant suggestions. We’d totally stay there again if we come back to the area!

    The half price validated parking was three blocks up. That was the only pain. Otherwise hotel was nice. Great location to walk to Millennium park
