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

Excellent hotel. But they need to clean up the entrance and outside areas more often as there was trash sitting around all weekend.

Friendly staff and very helpful. Furnishings a little tired. Stayed 5 nights and sheets were only changed once, the day before we left! Air conditioner very loud.

Evanston was clean bad beautiful, lots of cool places to eat that were within walking distance, would most definitely stay again next time I am in Chicago!

This was the most unenjoyable Hilton stay I have ever had. The room smelled like cigarettes. I could hear all the street noises. Then and 12a I had knocking on my door, and a flood of loud noises next door. People were coming in and out of the room, and children were screaming/ crying until after 1:30a. I called the front desk at 12:20. Security came up and asked the people next door if they were ok. Worst nights sleep ever in a Hilton.

If you like to take long walks on the beach and picnic by the shoreline, but don’t care much about the smell or size of your room, then this hotel is right for you! Let’s start from the beginning. The price of valet parking is outrageous in Chicago, but decent for that hotel. You can come and go as you please for one flat rate which is awesome! Check-in was easy. The gal was super nice and answered all of my “out-of-towner” questions. The lobby looked great btw. Very modern. Once we made it to our room, the smell just hits you when you open the door. Not sure if it was cigarette smoke from the previous renters or the smell of death in the walls, but it was NOT good. Had to spray the room with perfume to make it bearable. The bathroom was super tiny. Like, I could brush my teeth while on the toilet, small. The bed was a king and the tv was at least a 50 inch LG. Very nice! There was a window but you couldn’t see through it as it had fake shutters on it. I’m guessing to conceal all of the bulky equipment outside. My biggest complaint was the smell of the room. Not pleasant at all. You’d think for the price of the room, the least you’d get is a carpet cleaning every now and then or even some air freshener. The dead body smell was terrible. Avoid room 318!

Excellent staff! They helped us with several questions we had.

Started out tough because they couldn’t find my reservation and I had a double booking through Orbitz but the staff straightened it out and waived the fee. Rooms are very comfortable but the bathroom is a bit small. Overall very satisfied.

nice stay staff was great. Bathroom very small and some mechanical noises in the room. Would stay again.

Many issues of dissatisfaction. I have stayed in many hotels in many cities in many countries. Without a doubt, the bathroom in my hotel room was the smallest I’ve ever experienced. Ridiculous to have a bathroom that only fit one person yet the room was capable of holding four people! The room was booked for foour guests, and of course there were only two towels!! The lobby must have just had the carpet cleaned or something as it smelled terribly when we walked in to the hotel and triggered asthma attacks in my wife and daughter!! It was very unpleasant to be woken up on vacation at 6am to the pounding of someone exercising on a treadmill in the fitness room !!! Sound proof the room for gods sake!!! The only saving grace was the staff. They were all pleasant, friendly and helpful.

We were in town for a wedding. My whole family stayed at this hotel for the weekend. The reception was at the hotel so it was perfect. Evanston is such a great little town. We could walk to the train, many restaurants and bars and even to strolled to Northwestern University. The only negative of the hotel was the Farmhouse restaurant. The staff was unfriendly and appeared annoyed by the large amount of people we had in our group. It was a bar too and was closed by 11:00pm all weekend. Very inconvenient.
