Ideally located in downtown Evanston, this 4-star hotel features 2 restaurants, a well-equipped gym and rooms with a 32-inch flat-screen TV. Northwestern University is just 2 blocks away.

Offering easy access to Interstate 94, this hotel is 5 miles from Northwestern University and a 25 minute drive from downtown Chicago. A complimentary hot breakfast is provided each morning.

In an ideal location directly connected to the McCormick Place convention center, this hotel has contemporary accommodations and first-class amenities and services, and is a short drive from downtown...
Score from 918 reviews Very good
the hotel is currently renovating and we got a new room that was really nice and clean. wifi worked fast and complimentary breakfast was really good. they had a lot more than hotels usally offer complimentary.
nothing. but if we would have wanted to sleep in, noise could have been i problem since there was a note in the room that they start renovation works at 9am. we didnt hear anything though.
Beds - very comfy, breakfast was delicious with choices, front desk staff friendly & helpful. Elevators came quickly, were fast. TV good.
Room overheated, then had to be cooled, hard to regulate. Doors and entry to parking poor, were difficult. Walls of room seemed bare. This may all be solved with remodel.
Heater not warm enough
Clean. Comfortable bed. Can walk to everything in Evanston. Excellent value
A bit dated but they are taking care of that with the reno
Staff Location Breakfast
Poor maintenance of Fitness Room Poor sealing around HVAC unit caused the room to remain chilly
Even remodeled room looks old and not clean. Noisy floor, people yelling late at night.
in the center, you can easily hear the noises of train + cars. Additionally, when you use the heating system it makes extra noise. if you are sensitive, they may have negative effects on your sleeping comfort.
Friendly staff, good price, great location
Tiny rooms, minimal toiletries in bathroom
Nearness to Northwestern University and downtown Evanston.
Room was great. View was even better.
Shower was lousy! Would love a restaurant in hotel. Breakfast needs an upgrade.
Staff is really friendly & helpful.
Bedding for pull-out sofa didn't fit the bed.
IN ROOM FACILITIES HEATER WAS TOO NOISY NOT WORKING PROPERLY BREAKFAST WAS POOR
Dingy out of date interior,poor lighting, slow to make up rooms.
Great shower. Comfy bed& pillows. Fair breakfast items. Beautiful view. Good location for us. Friendly desk staff
Tricky parking- didn't like that it wasn't included in hotel price. Sink pipes leaked a bit. Bedside Lamp outlet didn't work. Slooooow flushing toilet - never over-flowed but it worried me w/ each flush.
Location-close to Evanston downtown and NU
Aircon-the auto adjustments of temp control was so loud, I could hardly sleep a longer period of time without being waken by the sound. Breakfast-perhaps the most unimpressive breakfast we had ever had.
Proximity to downtown Evanston was good. Some of the front desk staff were helpful and pleasant but not all. Breakfast option was good but would have been better if opened earlier.
Friends who heard we were staying at Best Western grimaced and said "You're staying at the 'Hooker Hotel?'. We laughed until we saw some evidence that this might be true. People were lurking around the building -- especially the parking lot -- and we were uncomfortable with the fact that there seemed to be no security anywhere. The fact that building is under construction is hopeful for the future; presently the building is dark, dusty and out-of-date. The appearance of the outside of the building is terrible.
Convenience for Evanston amenities
The reason we chose a hotel at Evanston was the scandalous prices at Chicago (2nd week of September) cleanliness space bathroom high floor
breakfast so so way back from Chicago every night
great free breakfast, comfortable bed and pillows in big , quiet rooms
Staff and guests were nice and friendly The room is as in the pictures
Does not have a ramp a the entrance. It has an elevator for handicap guests but suitcases don't fit so I had to carry them up the stairs when checking in and down the stairs when leaving. Very ugly building from the outside, ugly entrance, doesn't even look like a hotel entrance and as the reception is further in on the left no one is there to see you and help you. Corridors and common areas seemed very old and used
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.
