Amazing service and great room!
Reviewed 2 days ago

The service was great from an extremely fast check-in to upgrading my room and even answering questions late hours of the night. The room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. It was in an AMAZING location, walking distance to almost anything you could want in Chicago.

the hotel is very well located, near all the highlights We did all our visits on foot

The room was similar to the description, small but sufficient with a great view. for the breakfast, we had at the second floor fruits, cereals, coffee, tea and at 5 O'clock every day we had a glass of wine (red or white).

Great location

We had a two night stay at the River Hotel and could not have had a better location. It had points of interest (Grant park, Chicago 360, theaters, restaurants..) within easy We had asked for an upgrade to a larger queen room so we could have a refrigerator and view of the river.Ironically the "larger" queen room is without a doubt the smallest hotel room we have ever stayed in, although clean and quiet.

My room is a windowless closet

When my work messed up and didn't get me booked in Hotel Monaco where my meeting is being held, this is what they came up with. Instead of window seats overlooking the city (Hotel Monaco), my closet-of-a-room is a rather dingy looking, windowless, hear everything going on in the hallway and rooms around you situation, complete with coffee stained info card sitting on the bed . . . Thank god I'm not claustrophobic and thank god at least they have wine (the least they can do to help you tolerate the rooms. . . ), yet somehow my 4-night stay will total over $1000. . . Never again.

Left my jacket in the closet after check out. When I called to let them know they gave me the runaround. Never got it back. I called several times to speak with management but never had success. I was told to speak with house keeping but never got a return call back. I called again and spoke with someone at front desk and was asked to call management again and that the housekeeper went home for the day. Never got a call back from anyone. I must Have called 11 times each time was asked to give a description of the jacket and was told something different evrytime.
One employee told me they would look in lost and found but never got back to me. I went there several times and was told to call tomorrow. They just gave me the runaround.
