We were given a small room on the eighth floor right by the elevator. The HVAC system ran all night. It went from cold to hot all night. The noise level from the unit was unbearable. The desk staff apologized and nothing else despite the very obvious sign that says if I'm not happy they will fix it. I had to point this out to her before she offered any sort of compensation. For that one night I received free valet parking...Thanks...
Overall the location was great
We were there on a holiday weekend so pricing was higher than the standard rate. The rooms were much smaller than i expected, especially for the star rating of the hotel and the price we paid. If i had to do it over again, i would stay somewhere cheaper as it wasn't nice enough to warrant the cost. The AC was also very "hot and cold" and turn off on itself in the middle of the night causing an uncomfortable sleep.
My wife and I, and our 2 kids under 3 in Chicago for a family reunion. I selected this location, as I'm familiar with the Evanston area, and the price was reasonable. Wow. More than reasonable, for the room, the view, and the helpful staff. Great stay!
Everything was satisfactory.
Great location. Wonderful, friendly staff. Very clean and comfortable.
Because parking is at a premium in that area of Evanston, we had to valet park and it's expensive.
loved that everything was within for the most part in walking distance
That you still had to pay for parking when you stayed at hotel and had to pay for three days when only stayed two.
Close to Northwestern University
Long drive to Chicago destinations
Rooms well equipped, very clean, quite lovely
Lack of smoking rooms, or at least a bench to sit outside for smoking and working, In adequate number of luggage carts
