This is the best value in town. friendly staff, clean rooms, full breakfast included – all at a resonable price. And FREE PARKING to boot!!!

this hotel is the best part of coming to chicago, staff are so much help and just love the guys that watch the cars.pool is great for the kids, hope to see you soon!

We stayed at this hotel last time we were in Chicago with our children. We chose this hotel because it seemed like the nicest hotel for the money and the free parking was a great incentive! When we got there, we were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded for a small price to a suite which was fabulous! The kids loved the pool and the restaurant had wonderful food. The rooms were clean, the staff was helpful and friendly and we really enjoyed ourselves. The hotel is also located in a great spot where you can walk to almost anything or take a bus. I would encourage anyone to stay at this hotel!

Most of my co-workers as well as myself stay at the hotel while traveling on business. Great place to meet with the clients and have a drink and then dinner

My wife and I stayed in a standard non-smoking room somewhere on a higher floor. It was fairly clean, quiet and comfortable. The bathroom was a bit out of date and was also small, but for the money we paid, we didn’t expect much more. The pool is decent and the location is VERY good with most everything within walking distance. Parking included was one of the best benefits since this can cost upwards of $30/night at other hotels. The pizza in their restaurant is NOT to be compared with Giordanos, but it was good enough. We would stay here again.

This is a GREAT place to stay. If you are looking at saving some money to spend while you are in Chicago. It is easy to spend $ 300 to $ 400 a night in Chicgao just for a hotel. Staying here provides the following:

Clean Rooms
Great Location
Free Parking
In and Out

Great place to stay if you want to be in the middle of the City. We love staying north of the river. We have already made our reservations for our April stay!

See you there!

I’ve stayed at the Best Western River North a number of times and have always been very happy with the staff and the accommodations. It’s a great value, especially if you consider the free parking. It’s within easy walking distance of the Chicago loop, and Michigan Avenue’s Miracle Mile, and my favorate Irish pub and Blue Chicago are actualy just around the corner. "I’ll be Back."

This hotel is great for it’s location.
It is awesome for the free parking.
Nice staff.

Incredible hotel, outstanding location. When we went on our honeymoon, the maitre d’ ordered flowers for my during a busy time in Chicago and they were waiting in our room for my new wife. You can expect high class services and excellent accomodations. Seriously right across from Gino’s East…you know what i’m talking about. Mark Odzinski April 2005

We always stay here, the location is wonderful; just out of the way but central enough to get where you want to go.

Someof the things we like.
o Free parking, adds up over a short or long stay.
o Indoor swimming pool, great for thw Summer or Winter
o Rooms, clean and tidy, nothing fancy, just what you need after a long day in Chicago
o Free wireless internet, great for finding out stuff if you haven’t come prepared. Also keeps the kids busy.
o Restaurant, great in the morning when you need something to get you going.
o Staff, helpful and polite
o Price, always gives great value for money.

Overall I give this place a 10 out of 10.

Great location — close to everything. Great staff. The free parking was a bonus!

A great value and great location. Clean, comfortable rooms. Free parking too!!

My wife & I have stayed at the BW River North several times during the past 18 months and we plan to stay there when we visit Chicago–our daughter is a student in Chicago and we visit her as often as possible/feasible. One of the times we stayed there we were upgraded to a suite even though we did not make a request for one and it was a pleasant blessing we enjoyed. The pool and fitness center is very nice compared to other hotels in this $$$ range in the Chicago area–it is very usable for us as we both try to get some appropriate exercise each morning. The BW River North is an excellent value and we have recommended it to several of our friends. One last comment: the staff has always been very nice and do a very good job ensuring the guests are pleased. Thank you!

We stay at the Best West River North every time we go to Chicago – we love how close it is to wonderful shopping, the United Center (for Hockey) and the ease for getting on the freeway when we want to venture out. Also, appreciate the free parking.

I love staying here when I come to Chicago with my kids and I especially love the free parking! We will definitely be back 🙂

Have stayed here several times. Good value, nice rooms, great location, and parking, too. Always my first choice in the city.

I just returned from my second stay here in two years and have been blown away (pun intended) both times. Clean rooms, clean hotel, friendly staff (parking attendants, maids, front desk, etc.)great pool, nice views, nice restaurant with attentive courteous staff and above average food, FREE PARKING, within walking distance of Sears Tower .6 miles, Michigan Avenue .5 miles, Hancock .7 miles, Navy Pier/Ohio Street Beach 1 mile, L station .2 miles, Metra Station .6 miles, Hard Rock Cafe, McDonald’s, Walgreens, BP across the street, Oh and FREE PARKING! Wonderful, Nice, Best time,will return and would highly recommend. You guys rule. Thanks for making my vacation more than pleasant and deeply memorable.

I would never stay anywhere else!! The price is perfect, the parking is FREE and the pool is great and the location is perfect!! Why stay anywhere else??!

Wallace is the man. He made our stay great and he was very hospitable. We will be sure to come back soon. Thx again from us in ohio to you in chicago. See you soon.

Brooks family

Looking forward to my first time visit to Chicago with a group of friends, they have all stayed at the BW and rave about it, how close it is to everything and of course the free parking…
