Rooms & Rates
Just around the corner from the start of Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, the River Hotel offers guests the perfect base to explore this iconic stretch of Michigan Avenue, described by Fodor’s as “a potpourri of historic buildings, upscale boutiques, department stores, and posh hotels.”
Upon arrival, guests can relax in the lobby’s comfy, plush seating and refresh with complimentary lemon-infused water before checking in to compact but well-appointed guest rooms praised by Oyster.com as “clean and modern.”
Free Wi-Fi, unlimited chilled, purified bottled water, loaner iPads, a fitness room, and complimentary laundry facilities are among guest perks, not to mention the critically acclaimed Italian restaurant on site.
Bella Bacino’s serves up classic Italian fare, with homemade pizza that will wow. Pizza connoisseurs can opt for a crispy thin crust or a hearty stuffed pizza with a long list of fresh ingredients to inspire a delicious pie. Be sure to snag a table on the outdoor sidewalk patio, open in the warmer months.
