great free breakfast, comfortable bed and pillows in big , quiet rooms
The staff are very helpful and friendly. Room is clean and comfort. Only a few minutes to downtown evanston. Easy to find restaurants nearby. If you are not happy with the breakfast provided at hotel, there are always cafés nearby opened very early in the morning.
This place, especially the exterior, is a bit run-down. The lobby is dull and smells. The scrambled egg served at breakfast was too rich and sweet. Breakfast options are limited.
Plenty of space, close to the university, good complementary parking, internet and breakfast, people very pleasant. The lady behind the counter was very friendly and the rooms a pleasant surprise
Arrived late at night expecting a place in a University environment, instead it seemed like a run down neighbourhood with odd parking facilities and a musty lobby.
I liked the location near Northwestern University, it is within walking distance.
The train passes near, and it is loud and frequent. The breakfast was not that great. We were on the 12th floor and water pressure was a problem, at times we had no water, sometimes a small dribble, and others full pressure.
In good location, accesible to CTA and friendly staff.
Sleep was disrupted by folks coming home after bar time. Also was located by ice machine. Definitely ask for room away from elevators and ice machine.
Nice view from large windows Very Comfortable Bed Free Breakfast Very clean Secured Parking
Very good location Decent breakfast Great view from the 12th floor
Best price in the immediate area (through booking.com) Clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff, solid WiFi, great shower, tasty and filling breakfast included. On-site parking.
Hm. Thinking hard ... the driveway was really steep into the parking garage?
Everything was fine for me. Nothing to complain about. Close to CTA Station to get to Chicago (so you don't have to search a (expensive) parking lot there. Ony a few minutes to drive to next Interstate.
Depending on where your room is you can here train noise. Parking fee could be cheaper for hotel guests.
The room was nice. The lady checking us was brilliant. Listened to my complaint & refunded me a night.
Been woken up at 9 from the builders in the room below us.
closeness to train stations (2). Closeness to NWU. Breakfast bar. Neighborhood eateries.
Construction work. Non heated pool.
Building was under construction as well as the street and as a result was loud and dirty
People there is very kindly and helpful! Delicious breakfast! It takes about 40 minutes to get there by taxi from O'Hare airport for $35-40. Has a gym.
Not very near to public transport which may double you budget in taking taxi. Itself is a little expensive when take into account of tax.
I like the proximity to Northwestern U. We were able to walk everywhere we needed to go.
The wi-fi was really slow, which upset my teen-aged stepdaughter.
excellent free buffet breakfast
exercise room very small and not all equipment was in working order
Great location, extremely friendly staff, and clean and comfortable rooms. The free breakfast is nice as well.
Seemed to have a little trouble connecting to Wi-Fi.
The price was right, and the location was good if you are traveling to Chicago by car.
I reserved a king bed. The hotel only had a regular size bed. The parking garage needs to be resurfaced and convex mirrors added for safety. The halls are poorly lighted. One of two treadmills was broken. The elliptical wobbled so much it felt unsafe. The floor lamp in the room was not fully secured to it's base. A screw was missing in a dresser draw handle. The breakfast eggs were mixed with ham. We do not eat ham. There was no "lite" yogurt. The coffee was not hot. The water for my wife's tea was lukewarm.
2.5 blocks from public CTA transportation. The staff was very friendly and was available to answer any questions we had. Many choices with the included breakfast. Waffles, eggs, biscuits & gravy, muffins, pastries, cereal, coffee, tea, juices, bagels, toast, fruit.... The beds were very comfortable and nice views outside. My family and I will definitely be back!
7:am breakfast should start earlier
Kudos to housekeeping. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable.
After checking in I was advised that the room I had reserved would not be the one I was getting. That was not a big deal. water would be out for a little bit the next day. Apparently a little while is 5+ hours. That is not okay. Also, the parking garage is less than stellar at the best.
Easy walk to restaurants, shops. Comfortable bed and pillows. Pleasant room.
Communication between front office and housekeeping was "off." Housekeeping didn't seem to know if guests were staying, checking out, or had already checked out.
Overall, I was pleased. I did not use the in house computers, but my son had trouble logging into the wi-fi. He chose not to call the tech #...
The staff was friendly, helpful and accommodating
14$ a night for parking
Room rate! Front desk was very helpful during construction. The location to Northwestern was excellent. Also discount agreement with local restaurant across the street.
Renovations. WiFi needs improving.
Liked the location, the room and bed were very comfortable and loved the young lady who checked us in and accommodated are needs with absolutely no hassle.
Thee first morning we had breakfast there was no coffee.
