I had reserved two king rooms. One was ready at 230p.m. when we arrived for check in, the other was almost ready. we all went to the first room, very large, spacious, very nice. When the second room was ready my husband and I went to it. HALF the size of the other one. SAME PRICE. The rooms were very clean. They are painting the interior, which will be very nice when complete. Area was easy to walk to many things as I did not want to pay to park at several places. Hotel does charge to park... Read more

I have to admit that I was a bit nervous when we checked in and I saw some construction going on, plus towels hanging in the bathroom were dirty, and our room had no refrigerator like I had requested. However one stop down at the front desk and right away the towels were replaced along with extra towels given, refrigerator and microwave were put into our room at no charge, and construction was never a problem for us. We were on the sixth floor and not once did I hear anything. Front desk was s... Read more

This hotel is being updated. We were in a newly updated room so the room felt fresh. However, there were no signs up to find the room. Since there were multiple hallways, it took us a while to find our room. We had a double bed room. Beds were full and not queen. We didn't use the pool, but it looked nice. There was a small 3 piece gym as well. A deck/balcony off of the pool area was nice and had beautiful views. Elevators were extremely small and slow. We opted for the stairs most times. P...

This hotel is conveniently located in the River North district of Chicago, close to the Magnificent Mile, Navy Pier and many great restaurants. The hotel is being updated (it's in an older building) but our room was very modern and spacious. The bed was great. I slept better there than I do in my own bed at home. The bathroom was roomy, with a great shower with good water pressure and plenty of hot water. My only complaint with the shower is that I couldn't adjust my shower head. The walls... Read more

Was there for the NRA show and stayed at this Best Western! Jabig and Wallace were very welcoming and informative. They help us out with what to do and where to go. Thank you! Only downfall to this hotel it is on a very very busy street and you can hear everything. Including other people in their room.

This hotel appears to be slowly upgrading most of the property. I was given a third floor suite which is essentially a long thin room with a bathroom cutting it into two, witha bed on one side and a sitting area on the other. I had two small windows witha view of the parking lot. The bed was comfortable, the furniture was solid and new, the paint and fixtures were relatively new, and it was clean. The free wireless internet was decently fast (4mbs up and down) and the breakfast was real and not... Read more

We came in town for a Cubs game and we wanted to stay downtown. This hotel is close to many things and had paid parking in its lot. Very close to red line and we were able to hop train to Wrigley. Front desk was very courteous and helpful. Room was not big but clean and updated. Comfortable beds. We will definitely stay here again. Perfect place to just sleep and tour the city.

We have been stayed at the same hotel near Lincoln Park eight times in the past, but when the rates became too high for the value received, we decided to look around. We chose the BWRN because of the price and its having a pool, and we were extremely pleased with our decision. Wallace, the concierge was right there at the door to greet us and make us feel welcome. His consistent greetings, jokes, and careful attention to our needs and wants made us feel important and valued. Shayla and DeAnd... Read more

Best Western RIver North is conveniently located near the blue (Clark/Lake) train station, which connects to O'Hare. This property is in walking distance to Michigan Avenue, Merchandise Mart, and Millennium Park. For those driving into the city it is great to know that there is parking on-site! The hotel lobby has been updated, and rooms are good, but could use an update. Staff is friendly and accommodating.

Yes, the hotel is nicely situated, but not the best for business travelers. I stayed in both sections of their hotel on two visits. The room I had above the parking had such a loud AC it was hard to sleep. My colleague slept with his off and woke up all sweaty each morning. In the main section, on my second stay, I got no Wifi in my room and had to go to the lobby to connect. And then the elevator broke down. I walked up to the 6th floor 4 or 5 times. I was glad they discounted my room a bit ... Read more

Room was nice. Clean and comfortable. Indoor pool managed to be quite cold, not sure if it was recently filled or what the reasoning behind this was. The price mixed with the locations made it a pretty decent value all in all.

Somewhat dated and lots of work being done, but the rooms were clean, comfortable and in a great location. Easy walk to Navy Pier, Magnificent Mile, Willis Tower (all within less than two miles). We would definitely stay again! Lots of places to eat nearby...we parked when we got there and walked everywhere!

We chose this hotel because of the location, and it was even better than we thought. Everything we wanted to do was in walking distance except for Wrigley Field which was a short cab ride. Everyone who worked at the hotel were very nice and friendly. The room was small, but comfortable and clean. The kids liked the pool, and the view from the patio was nice. We would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.

We were traveling on a budget so this hotel was perfect! It was affordable (only $25/night for parking which is excellent for Chicago) and was located very centrally. You can walk to Navy Pier or the Art Institute of Chicago in about 20 minutes. Michigan Avenue is probably less than 10 minutes. The room was very clean and the front desk staff was great. They even give you coupons for half off drinks at the restaurant. The bathroom is tight but the rest of the room is a nice size. The elevator sy... Read more

The hotel has been around for over 40 years. Originally it was the Mart Inn. It has been upgraded since we were last there. We found it comfortable and clean and the parking reasonable. We could walk many places without along taxi's. My only complaint was no Coca Cola products available

It was a nice little hotel perfect for a short visit, to Chicago town. Near to all the nice stores downtown. Stuff is very Friendly. If you are driving be prepare to spend a lot of money in parking spaces. Gets a little overwhelming but Chicago is a great city. I won't recommend to drive. If you drive pay the hotel 35 dlls parking fee it's as cheap as it gets and you get to take your car in and out. Everything is walking distance from the hotel but is a must to have a good walking shoes.

The hotel staff are quite nice and knowledgeable about the city. The room was cleanish and the bathroom was a different story. There was yellow residue at the bottom of the tub, cracked walls, the shower spout was not attached to the wall and showed a very large gap and the door in the bathroom was very filthy. The air conditioner did not work properly and it took about five hours to get it down three degrees. The bedding was itchy but the decor of the room was lovely.

We stayed here in early July and if I were staying in Chicago again, I'd be 95% sure I'd just stay here again. The place isn't much to look at from the outside or the corridors inside but the rooms appear to have been renovated recently and the in room experience was fantastic. The price isn't cheap but it isn't expensive for Chicago but the location is perfect.

This hotel has a great location, nice and helpful staff, clean rooms, and a great value. We did not use the hotel parking, instead we used an app. called Parking Whiz and saved quite a bit. The location was perfect. We never moved our car the whole stay. We walked to CTA locations and every major attraction from this spot. Never walked over a mile, even to Navy Pier. If walking short distances to the attraction or to public transportation isn't for you, neither is Chicago. The weather was... Read more

For the price this was a very nice hotel! It is older, but was comfortable. Stayed 5 nights and were close to many of the attractions we wanted to see. Big Bus is located near by so easy access. Restaurant on site, which was good. Had fridge but wish microwave was included in price vs extra charge. Parking was easy and very affordable.

We normally stay in Best Western hotels due to the good rewards. We booked this one as we traveled to see a concert and wanted to stay somewhere in the middle of the city. Well the rooms were clean and quiet and the air conditioning was superb. The rooms are very spacious and the noise you will hear comes from outside city noises. They were also clean and the bed was comfortable. We parked there and used lyft to travel around the city. Good stay!

It's definitely an older, dated hotel, but if you're there to explore the city and won't be spending a lot of time in your room, you can't go wrong here. A great location, being about a 10 minute walk to the magnificent mile and about 20 mins to the Bean. Several great restaurants nearby, including classic spots for deep dish pizza or steak. $25 per night for parking ($35 for in and out, but you do NOT need this option because - the city is very walkable).

Room was excellent- very clean, updated and modern, and had a good view from the window. The only negative about our room was that the bathroom is divided by a door separating the sink from the toilet and the bathtub, and the bathtub/toilet area is TINY with hardly any room to stand while you open the door to leave the shower. Otherwise, the room is excellent. The location is great- super close to all the touristy things that my husband and I wanted to do (museums, aquarium, Sears/Willis tower,... Read more

They allowed us to store our luggage prior to checkin & after checkout. They were also helpful in getting taxis. The hotel is closest to the Redline Grand station. It's within walking distance of lots of fabulous restaurants as well as shopping. We would stay again.

We were staying downtown and there were a lot going on downtown Chicago . It was hard to find a cheap room. This was the least expensive room but it was 260.00 a night. Overpriced in my opinion. These rooms have been as low as 89.00 a night. That would be a great price. Great location. Cheap parking. One elevator did not work. You have to walk through the parking lot to get to the elevators and you need your key to get into the room with the elevators. We checked out and had to walk down the par... Read more
