    Location. Reasonable cost. Room was comfortable. Quiet.

    Advertised wifi in the room did not work (very poor reception). Had to resort to cable, which was a little inconvenient.

    More help was needed to run the continental breakfast. As we arrived to the room. we found crumbs on a chair and several hairs in the shower stall.

    The hotel was nice and pretty convienient to the ammenities. The Metra line was about 2-3 blocks away. Wasn't a 4 star by any means but it was definately decent for the price. I'd stay there again. Thanks!

    The hotel did lose power from 5:30pm on Saturday night (July 4) and was still out in the morning of July 5 when we checked out. They didn't have (or didn't use) generators so it was hot and we had to carry our luggage down 12 floors (yes, wouldn't you know it we were on the top floor!) The stairways were not lit up - finally about 9:30 pm they put flashlights on every 3rd floor, so the in between floors were pitch black. Didn't like that too much. They did refund our stay for that night.

    Price vs location were very good. Service was a little iffy but not bad.

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    Staff and comfort good value, location a little too far to downtown Chicago (45 mins by taxi). Evanston was a nice clean area with excellent facilities.

    I thought the breakfast was poor and not upto the acceptable standard. Polystyrene plates and cups were very dissapointing and considering the environment, not in keeping with the message in the bathroom concerning towles and re-usage.

    Accomodations were excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful.

  • Family with children

    Good location with dining and shopping close by.

    Ac in the rooms was not the greatest.

  • Group of friends

    The hotel was run down and not acceptable. It even had a bad smell throughout. The pool had algae in it and the hot tub was filled with wood chips. The tv and remote didn't work. The meal was good, but the staff there was unfriendly. The best part was the bed. It had a good pillow top. This was NOT worth $230!!!!!

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    easy accessibility...convenient parking....in the heart of Evanston...it was refreshingly quiet as well

    Location near train tracks....noise from commuter trains interferred with rest

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Comfortable clean room with parking on-site. We have stayed there before when visiting family in the north of Chicago. Good access to the "El" and to bars and eating places in Evanston.

    The breakfast is rather basic. The decor looks a bit tired.
