                    The location was excellent; near to restaurants, shopping, night life, the lakefront. The staff was very friendly & helpful.

                    Hmmmmm, to begin: Room #907 might have been the room with the worst view of any room in the Hotel. The air conditioning was loud and the vent was pointed directly at the bed.....the combination of these two factors made for a very difficult night's sleep. The shower had very low pressure and the water trickled out of the shower head. The sliding bathroom door seemed to be off of its hinges and it hadn't been cleaned or dusted for quite a long time.

                    Really great location for the price, room was small but perfect for a me (solo traveler on business). I really enjoyed the bottled water dispensers on my floor. Very nice touch.

                    Small point of contention, but the low-flow water in the toilet and shower were a little inadequate. Hardly any pressure on either, while environmentally friendly, could lead to issues for some.

                    8.2

                    The hotel is very well located near the most popular attractions. The room is little, but clean and very comfortable.

                    Staff was not really interested in providing tourism information nor did they have proper documentation regarding the attractions. And, I forgot a silver ring in my room and they could not find it 5 hours later when I called... We can doubt about their honesty...

                    The location of the hotel is excellent for being on vacation & to bet to everything in the city. The upgraded rooms are much more desirable than the rooms that have not been renovated. We had that experience but the staff were kind enough to change our room the second day we were there. The patio resetaurant at the front is a nice bonus.

                    Our first night we were in a room taht had a terrible bed. It squeaked everytime one of us moved. The mattress was awful. The room was a little on the small sde for staying 4 days.

                    Location was very good-close to Michigan Ave, parks, and the river (duh!). The beds were some of the best in a hotel -I'm now gonna have to get a feather pillow! Rooms were clean and very up-to-date.

                    I didn't see a choice for heterosexual friendly on your question regarding how to describe the River Hotel- did I miss something!?!?

                    Location was good.

                    Staff was pretty rude, unhelpful. Beware the River Hotel also has the name Club Quarters. Club Quaters prices are lower....do not book The River Hotel, book under Club Quarters for a cheaper rate. This does not make sense. We booked The River and everything in our room had cq name all over. Disapointed, hotel would not adjust our rate, so Booked.net went to bat for us and got us the difference

                    Great location, friendly staff and clean rooms.

                    Rooms a little small but for location and price great place.

                    The room had a modern decor, bed was comfortable, location was central to the two major parts of Chicago, Michigan Ave. and State St.

                    The television was very small and difficult to see from the bed. The room was so tightly packed that we had to move furniture in order to be able to reach the bathroom from one side of the bed. The bed was too close to the wall on one side.

                    Beautiful historic building. Good location near to transport and many tourist areas. Really appreciated having a free laundry available in the hotel. Would definitely stay here again.

                    Rear rooms have no views

                    The hotel is right across Chicago River and we did have a river view. The room was affordable and although modest in size, was completely furnished and effectively designed. It was also clean :)

                    The room rate did not come with breakfast :(

                    Location. Rooms were small but well laid out.

                    As the property is quite old (rooms have been updated), the windows let in quite a bit of cold air and noise.

                    great area of the city close to just about everything

                    rooms were small, but expected

                    The location is hard to beat. You are short walk from the Magnificent Mile and the Art Institute of Chicago as well as nearly every metro line (all except the blue). We were able to check-in early and check-out late (there is a fee involved for the late check-out). The room was clean and the hotel was quiet. A very nice experience, I would definitely stay there again.

                    My only gripe involved the key card and the elevator. While it is a nice security feature (having to use your key card to access the other floors of the hotel), the card readers in the elevator do not work consistently. Several times I had to get a new card. I was finally told that the cards demagnetize when placed near credit cards or cell phones! I don't believe that because I had card not work in the elevator but work to get into the room. Regardless, it was a minor inconvenience but one I want to make everyone (and the hotel) aware of.

                    The location was fantastic, the river views were amazing and the staff were wonderful.

                    We initially had a room at the club quarters side, and rear of hotel (11th floor) - it was noisy, but the hotel was happy to move us the following day, they were lovely people.
