Check 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.

The location and view from the (small) window

Please get the second elevator fixed very soon. The wait for the only working elevator was anywhere from 5-15 minutes. What's worse was in the morning when many guests were checking out and packed the elevator with luggages. The stairs were not an option at that point so you had to wait and wait.

Room was clean and spacious enough. Bed was also comfortable. Staff was very polite and friendly. Request for more towels was met surprisingly prompt. Location was prime for everything. Would stay again now that I know what to expect. Price was reasonable.
Other Comments
Television was interestingly small (had to be like a 13" or a 19") which the distance from the bed made it feel like watching tv on a tablet. No complimentary iron/ironing board in room which I thought was weird. Was told self park was $28 for a 24 hour period but upon and leaving parking garage was charged $44.
