Great hotel with a perfect location! Its right on the river and next to the Chicago Theater. The hotel itself is luxurious with nice clean rooms and an exquisite rooftop bar. The lobby has an open mic and the staff are very friendly and helpful.

If you are looking for a hotel along the river that offers plenty of amenities you'll want to check out the Renaissance. They have an eatery on the main floor, a restaurant and bar on the third (along with rooftop seating), pool and fitness center, and ample conference rooms. The decor is very artsy and beautiful. Beds are comfortable and linens soft. A plus for me - the room windows open! Enjoy that Chicago air and hear the beat of the city.

Close to everything in the city. It has a great group of service and the lobby is really cool. The rooms are clean with most looking out into the city.

A huge hotel right on the banks of the Chicago River, which means this Renaissance offers nice unobstructed river views and accommodations for large groups of family travel. The hotel entrance has an inner driveway, which is very convenient and allows you to avoid the traffic of Wacker Drive and unload your taxi or car without having to rush. The lobby is huge, and has seating areas and lounges, a bar, workstations, and couches. The hotel is a popular choice for conferences and convention groups, and is two blocks away from the Clark & Lake CTA train station, which features six train lines. It’s also off of State Street, which is a major shopping avenue in the Chicago Loop.

This is a grand hotel. It’s big, it’s luxurious, and it’s located right on the river, offering great views of the city and the “corncob” towers located nearby. Upon stepping inside, visitors are greeted by large palm plants and a pleasant indoor fountain. Around the corner is the hotel bar, an elegant spot awash in warm, reddish hues. As to be expected, the rooms are quite nice, and the beds have these comforters that sport a really cool rhombus-shaped starburst design. A small table can help you get some work done, but you may just end up staring out the window for a while. For more views, hit up Roof at the Wit, which is just down the block and offers one of the best drinking views in the entire city.

The Renaissance Chicago is not in the ideal location to hit all the famous Chicago sites because it is not exactly walking distance to anything, however; it is close enough that an affordable cab ride will get you where you want to go. This hotel is extremely large and while the lobby and rooms are nice, you could transplant this hotel anywhere else and you wouldnt know that the hotel was from Chicago. We ejoyed the size of the rooms because we stuffed 5 people in there. This would be a good hotel for large weddings.
