A charming hotel in a relaxing residential neighboorhood within easy walking distance to downtime Evanston

We had a great time at our stay at the Graduate hotel! Every detail was carefully thought out, including the decor and health details. The staff were great, thoughtful and helpful with whatever we needed.

Adorable decor- comfortable and clean room. 2 block walk to Lake Michigan . 1 block to coffee shop—coming back when restaurant opens again.

Definitely an older hotel but staff amazing, location was good. I would stay here again!

We love the location and home type of feel to this hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Yes, some of the rooms are small, but it is always clean and well maintained. The bed was very comfortable and I slept very well. The continental is perfect for someone wanting a lite healthy breakfast. This was our 3rd stay at this hotel and we will go back if we need to come to the Chicago area for a stay.

Incredibly quiet and peaceful! Even though we were close to an elevator we did not hear a sound all night.

Looks like a 1970’s bedroom/bathroom. Very small space. Old fixtures/ decor was very dated. Bed was comfortable though Breakfast was a nice touch. Simple. Fruit yogurt muffins Front desk staff very friendly

It is a restored historic building in a beautiful neighborhood.

This hotel has a lot of charm. It's an old building with a lot of original fixtures. The bathroom was circa 1960. It was spacious, very close to Northwestern, had a great restaurant downstairs, nice bar. The breakfast wasn't the best, just bagels, breads, hard boiled Hess and some yoghurt. If you want an old hotel with a lot of charm and don't care about a lot of amenities like a pool, hot tub, etc.... and want to be close to the lake and the campus and other restaurants then this place is great!

shower in my room was broken plus they have really old style heater but room was warm

Great place to stay with delicious choices for continental bkfst, such as homemade breads and bagels, cheese, yogurt, fresh fruit and hard boiled eggs. The coffee is hot and there is an array of hot tea choices including green tea. There is a little library for a quiet get away with a book and hot cider served. Very friendly staff,

This is a great place to stay if you don't want a cookie cutter hotel experience. Staff is great -- rooms are kind of like staying at Grandma's (in a good way) with vintage fixtures in the bathroom and radiator heat.

Close to Northwestern campus. Excellent (and popular) restaurant on premises, and several other good restaurants within walking distance. Some of the facilities, like the elevators, are more like what you would find in a European pension than an American chain hotel.

The room was really cute and cozy. I loved feeling like I was in another time. My only complaint was the room could have been cleaner with new comforters and sheets. Other than that I enojoyed my stay. On a side note the staff was awsome!

quaint, charming hotel in the middle of everything. Walking distance to just about anything needed.

Lovely hotel in a quiet, nice neighborhood. The hotel's restaurant is outstanding.
