One of the receptionists was rude. All of them seemed to have difficulty making arrangements for us.

The breakfast was so weak.. The eggs were cold.. There was no any table to eat..
The location was great to reach to the center..

Clean, comfortable, location and attractive place.

The downside of old world charm is the inconvenience of the entry and the location and size of the elevator which really only impacts the initial arrival and departure.
The rooms are beautifully appointed, the baths are spacious and pristine. The building has vintage charm, the staff is delightful.

We arrived from Ecuador at 1am, there was a very welcoming, friendly person who checked us in and got us to our room post haste so we could crash.

It was everything I was wanting in a place to stay in a city I haven't visited.

The room is a mini get-away - so comfortable. The breakfast is delightful. The staff is first rate.

There was nothing we could have ask to be improved.
Everything from vision on arrival to farewell at checkout was outstanding.

Low water pressure !

Air-conditioning could be a bit noisy if you are a light sleeper
Staff were outstanding - nothing too much trouble. Quaint European decor and overall feel to the Inn Good continental breakfast included

I did not like the fact that I had to leave!
I loved the ancient, manual elevator! The staff was friendly and very helpful. Coffee was made available when I mentioned that I was a 5:00 am coffee drinker! I am looking for a reason to return-----

The room was slightly claustrophobic. There should have been a floor lamp behind the chair.
We loved the ambience and decor. The public rooms were beautiful and welcoming. I felt like Marie Antoinette sleeping in my bed. The neighborhood was quiet and the church bells were enchanting.

A great place to stay. Old world charm meets today's needs. Redecorating etc. tasteful and staying true to the roots of this hotel.

A bit too pricey.
October 8, 2014
The lack of parking and clutter in the back of the hotel due to renovations and construction.
The staff, the quaint atmosphere, the room and the hotel's proximity to restaurant and bar establishments.

Room was a bit too warm, breakfast not good
Stylish, nice atmosphere

Unfortunately there was construction on the building next door so we were awakened EARLY in the morning to sawing of concrete. Not the hotels fault but they should notate this on their site during a construction period.
The location is so perfect. Jumped on the expressway a block away to head toward the Cubs game NO PROBLEM. Cute and quiet streets and downtown area to eat at a street cafe's for breakfast, lunch or dinner. All walking distance. Most important you feel SAFE!

I wasn't expecting to have to haul my suitcase up some stairs. Not a big deal, but, I had had a really long day and wasn't prepared to tote my suitcase up a flight of stairs. Normally, not a big deal.
The hotel was beautiful and I found it quite charming. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom (though lacking counter space or shelving)had been updated very well. It was a nice surprise to have an updated bathroom in a more vintage looking hotel room. All in all, quite lovely.

Front desk staff aren't the sharpest or quickest.
Historical building that's very well renovated. Large room. Free, fast Wi-Fi. Very nice breakfast.

Unique, great breakfast, helpful and friendly staff and a wonderful location in a quiet part of Evanston.

The hotel needs some refurnishments, they already started with the bathrooms but there's so much more to do. The walls are so thin, I was able to hear the other guests getting in their rooms during the night (I'm usually a sound sleeper) and at some point it felt like somebody was getting into our room as the noises travelled easily. After that I didn't feel safe and didn't sleep well at all. It's a college town and so the room price was really high for what it was.
The bathroom and the shower even if it could have been cleanier. The location of the hotel, you can walk to restaurants and shops. I like that they kept the old elevator, it gives the place more charms.

The room, and hotel in general, smelled a little musty.
I would recommend with caveats. I liked the complimentary breakfast of coffee, juices, elegant & tasty breakfast pastries. I liked the renovated bathrooms and loved the friendly & very helpful staff--especially those working at the front desk. Our room was not made one day. The front desk was very apologetic, had our room made quickly and gave us free parking (which would have been $10/night!) for the incovenience. The dining/sitting room was a great space to relax and read the paper, as was the outdoor terrace.

We had a great experience with the Margarita European Inn. The staff was so helpful and accommodating right off the bat. The room was beautiful and spacious, and ended up being the perfect set-up for my husband, my daughter and I. The location could not have been better. We were able to walk to countless restaurants, coffee shops, stores, etc. and we were even able to walk around Northwestern Campus with just a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel.

Quiant with lots of history and character. Nice continental breakfast in parlour. Do not stay here if you like the big cookie cutter chains. This is for people who like unique and different. We recommend. We are couple in our sixties.
