Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.

The location is awesome! The staff is amazingly accommodating and helpful. The hotel was very clean and the views are amazing. My room was cozy, but not too small. Just right for this trip. I will definitely be returning!

I've stayed at the River Hotel twice now and both times we had great experiences. We were lucky enough to have great views on both occasions. You really can't beat the location and the staff are friendly and effective.
