new look - new style - new vibe

Royal Sonesta Chicago River North


Vibrant, eye-catching and wholly authentic, the Royal Sonesta Chicago River North is beloved as one of Chicago’s trendiest and most distinctive hotels. “Upscale” takes on new meaning amid our sleek checkerboard entryway, gilded accents, modern fireplace and Renaissance chandeliers. And our expansive, elegant guest rooms and suites provide the ultimate in comfort.

Visit our restaurant C.B.R., where the earthy roots of corn, barley, and rye weave into the quiet elegance of a well-balanced whiskey, overall evoking the feeling of a favorite softly-lit spot and the mellow glow of a craft cocktail. Escape to our 17th floor urban oasis pool and sundeck. Experience the Peloton Bike in our state-of-the-art fitness center with a view. Our Grand Ballroom features a private outdoor terrace and floor-to-ceiling windows with unrivaled downtown views. And we’re situated right at the heart of River North, one of the city’s hottest neighborhoods, and steps from all the cultural landmarks of Millennium Park. We invite you to elevate your Chicago experience with us.

Sonesta transitioned this hotel from Kimpton® Hotel Palomar Chicago. Our team looks forward to welcoming you to an unrivaled guest experience when you visit this new location.  Take a Tour
