The atmosphere is all business, but also quiet -- the hotel is a few blocks off Michigan Ave, which makes it a more relaxing place to stay. I don't mind the international standard style, with some boutique amenities thrown in.Recommended for:Business Travelers.Comment.9 months ago. ReportSara Benson
The Riv is in Uptown, which is an El train ride away from downtown. All the hotels are concentrated downtown and on the near north side, so you'll probably want to look there and then plan on taking the El or a cab to/from the concert venue. This hotel is about a 15-minute walk from the El, but I highly recommend it because you can often get good online deals. Other boutique and business hotels in the Loop are closer to the train stations. The stop nearest the Riv is Lawrence station on the Red Line.
