A hot breakfast. Free Wi-Fi throughout the space. Gathering with others over wine, beer and soda.

Within walking distance of the Magnificent Mile and downtown Chicago restaurants, bars and shops, the River North Hilton property prides itself on the extras--regardless of whether the trip is for business or leisure. Valet parking is available for a fee.

Great place

Hotel was nice and clean. The location was great and with in walking distance of the main strip. Taxi's were almost always waiting outside so getting around town from here was no problem. We had an amazing view from our room. Couldn't have been happier.

Birthday Surprise for my sister

The Good: The staff was super friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was pretty good. The not so good: The hotel is currently undergoing renovations, so we were woken up to the sound of drills and other construction sounds at around 8am. Also, the Wi-fi connectivity is spotty. The Bad: Parking IS NOT FREE! The information on the website is incorrect. Parking is actually $59 per car per day. :(
