The Merchandise Mart is why I come to Chicago… and yes, I always book my stay with the Best Western River North. Why? Because of its central location, clean rooms, great staff (love the Parking Lot attendant, Reggie) and free parking with in and out privileges. The Merchandise Mart also offers tours of the facility. It is really an architectural beauty… very art deco! It is a definate to do. After market hours, the BWRN is ideally located for shopping on the Mag. Mile!

The Sears Tower is a fasinating structure & is a must-do when visiting Chicago. Of course at the top, is very scarey. When we were there it was really foggy so we couldn’t see out or clear as we would have liked, but I never will forget the experience!!!

Everytime we visit Chicago, our family stays at River North. The location is terrific with great restaurants and close to a lot of major entertainment options. We appreciate the free and secure parking. Since we have younger children, the indoor pool on the top floor is an added bonus to look forward to.
