Walls are worse that paper thin... you can hear everything in the rooms to either side, above, and below as well as down the hallway like it is all happening right next to you

No indoor pool. Pay extra for parking. Bed pillows were comfortable

The first room they gave us was stale, but when we asked for a different room, they immediately gave us a fine one. We liked eating in a restaurant for breakfast, instead of at a 'continental' breakfast bar. The location was the best part: very near the El (rapid transit) for going to the Loop (downtown). At NOT in the Loop prices!

Very nice and quiet. Easy access to parking lot from hotel.

The location is great being close to the "L" and Evanston is a nice town with good restaurants and stores. The front desk staff could work on being friendlier. Service with a smile is not what I received. A good welcome with information on where amenities at the hotel are located would have been nice.

We had some issues getting into the room, but it was solved pretty quickly. The hotel was very clean and the decor was very modern. I have stayed here before and I will stay here again.

Food was great, staff was nice. The rooms were okay but the bathroom left something to be desired. The hallways smelled and were beat up. The windows need to be washed and the pool area could use some attention.

Good location. Need to pay parking. Free breakfast is only for one guest. Need to pay for the second guest.

desk staffat check-in lame. prepaid for a king bed room. at check-in was told "no king beds available, I need to put you in a double". I said that would work and they immeditaly produced a king room. Why BS me to say none available?? parking stupid expensice--much cheaper public lot immediatly next to and part of the hotel lot.

Location is great for visiting northwestern university

Orbitz lists this property as having free breakfast, which it does not. They don’t even have coffee in the lobby. You have to buy coffee in there restaurant. They didn’t clean our room and we were gone from morning till night with nothing on the door. When we called the front desk a disgruntled employee came to our room with a frown and begrudgingly handed me towels and toiletries. Their toiletries are tiny, and super cheap. You get better at a cheap hotel. There were no towels at the pool. Everything about the price of this hotel is the great location. You can easily walk to shops and restaurants.

We chose this property because it has a pool. It wasn’t until we were ready to take the kids to it that we learned that the pool isn’t open until Memorial Day. The kids were disappointed, but this was the only issue we had.

One of the best things about the hotel is how comfortable the bed was. The only real negative was if you are carrying allot of luggage or boxes as we were there isn’t an easy way to unload this stuff through all the security doors.
