The hotel is very nice. The staff was welcoming, friendly and helpful. The room was clean and the bed was comfy. The bathroom is small but the rooms are spacious. The hotel is in a nice and safe neighborhood. There are many stores and restaurants very close to the hotel. Parking was free and not an issue. Checking in n out was easy and quick. Downtown Chicago is like a 20-30 min car ride depending on traffic. Overall and excellent stay. Will definitely recommend and stay here again when we come back to the Chicago area.
Everything about this place was wonderful EXCEPT the staff and bouncers at bar louie. My boyfriend turned 21 so we stayed at this hotel to enjoy a weekend and just relax and drink when we went to bar louie we had to pay a 20 co pay to get in because of some ufc fight going on that i did not care about but i paid the 20$ cause i really wanted a beer. It was seat yourself so we seated ourselves and i went to the bar to get me and my boyfriend a drink. We sat at our table of choice enjoying our drinks when a waitress came over very upset that we got our own drinks. I did not know i needed to order my beer from her i thought it was only " food" related. I apologized and proceeded to explain that i did not know and i just wanted a beer she got very upset and stormed off very rude like. The next thing i know the bouncer came over asking if me and my boyfriend had a problem, apparently the waitress was so upset she complained to the bouncer about the situation. I contained my anger and frustration and explained my situation. I also told him it is not like i was rude to her or was even giving her any problems i just simply apologized and told her im from out of town so i am not accustom to these "rules" and that i didnt understand why he had to come over all macho like. Almost in a threatening manor. The conversation went no where and we decided to leave bar louie. Never to return. I would suggest you get better staff.
This is an economy hotel. Our room was very clean and the bed was comfortable, but the room lacked amenities, even for an economy hotel: no microwave, no fridge and no electric outlet near the desk. Evanston is a very nice suburban town: very walkable with numerous restaurants and near the El and Lake Michigan. The free breakfast was surprisingly good with more choices and better quality than a typical free breakfast.
Hotel has easy access from highway. Literally right off exit. Large mall across the overpass. Ruby Tuesday restaurant attached to hotel. Hotel was situated nicely between Highland Park and Lincoln Park. Breakfast was good but it was always packed. Not a lot of spaces to sit and eat. Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable but pillows were terrible. Well I should say that if you like fluffy full pillows you will hate these because they just flatten out. I would definitely stay here again but will bring my own pillows.
Stayed here several times for long stretches while dealing with the loss of a parent. The hotel is clean and the staff are very friendly. The room is clean and very quiet. I even had to bring my parents dog in the hotel for one night before driving home with the dog. They were absolutely wonderful about it. This is a great location. Near shops and restaurants and not far from the city. This is not a luxury hotel which, I think some of the reviews seem to be comparing it against. This is a fair price hotel. I had a refrigerator, microwave and cooktop. If I wanted dishes they would provide them. Internet works great and you can purchase an upgrade if you need a faster working Internet. I have never purchased the upgrade and have never had computer problems. Plenty of hot water and comfy bed.
Home to one of the most diverse populations in the Chicago area, Skokie hosts a Festival of Cultures every May. A sculpture park in town features 70 different works of art. Just north of the park is a statue to Mahatma Gandhi. The campus of Northwestern University occupies much of Evanston. This tree-lined suburb also claims to be the birthplace of the ice cream sundae.
