Location Great Very close to northwestern university Clean. Small bathroom

Good: great location, great staff. Less good: hotel is 100 years old and so has tiny bathrooms. Hilton is trying, but the age of the property is, as they say, what it is. We'll still come back because of the good stuff.

Leticia at the front desk is superb, extraordinary; really understands how to treat people. 2 other front desk people also were fantastic, I wish I knew their names. One was a black lady, she was new to the job, the other, a lean black man was training her. I arrived at 11 pm Thursday oct 3rd. I hope they get the positive feedback.

This was prob the friendliest hotel staff I’ve ever had the pleasure of dealing with! Had late night check-in and got treated like family even at 1am! Will return here every time i visit the area

This place is in a great location (downtown Evanston), the lobby is nice, the staff is great, but it's an old place trying to be new, remodeling doesn't fix this. My room looked out at two huge air conditioning units. The bed was two feet from the window A/C. In the bathroom the shower, toilet, and vanity were basically connected, very jammed and uncomfortable. The bar guy was busy yakking with (the only) two customers, I finally interrupted them and got attitude. The room wasn't cheap, as a 25 year former resident of Evanston, I was disappointed.

If your visiting Northwestern this is the place to stay. Very nice hotel, nice staff. Great location. Walk across the street to Northwestern. Tons of restaurants, shops right outside the door. Great experience.

Great location, restaurant is excellent & good fitness center

Wonderful historic hotel with surprisingly large rooms. The location is excellent!

Great location, free shuttle, easy access to Northwestern

Thank you for relaying your thoughts on the good and bad. While our bathroom space is somewhat limited due to our age, we should be able to recognize all customers even when engaged with others. We will work on that! Thanks for the feedback!
