Was a great location and price point for our vacation. We were a 15 min walk to the river walk and 13 min drive to United centre. The parking was so convenient and cheaper than I expected. Staff was very accommodating. While the hallways did have a small smell to them, the room was great and beds were comfy. I would definitely stay again

The property itself was mine, however the room wasn't the greatest. The front desk staff didn't follow through with a maintenance issue.

The reason we booked here was the roof top patio. There was an elevator out and it was confusing as to how to access the roof patio/pool/workout center. After several attempts and many stairs we found it. And it was lovely. The hotel was clean and staff were friendly.

BWRiver North is a really great spot to stay in Chicago for a few nights, or even a business week. Great location, near brown line (MerchMart/Chicago) and red line (Chicago), walkable to just about everything within 20 minutes in downtown/parts of loop. The facility shows its construction age, with its separate entries outside, but the real strength of this place is VALUE for what you are getting compared to other higher-priced hotels nearby. If you need a Gucci hotel this is not that; if you want convenient on-site parking, great staff, and location, this is it.

The property was very clean. The front desk and concierge were very friendly and helpful. Great location for us. Did NOT like the marijuana smoke smell in the halls and invading my room.
