The hotel is quite nice and charming. I love the European vibe. It's definitely unique. The rooms are huge. There's a library, a parlor, an old-timey cage elevator and more. I'd definitely recommend staying here.

Another lovely stay (possibly in the very same room) as we came to Evanston to visit Northwestern again. The staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms quaint and comfortable, and the breakfast delicious (freshly baked pastries, greek yogurt & STEEL CUT oats!!) Again, somewhat concerning was the fact that the old metal-framed bathroom window seemed not to seal up completely... More

My fiancee and I stayed two nights at this beautiful, affordable hotel and we were delighted with our experience. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. We couldn't have asked for more. Clean, classy, elegant all the way. The building has all the ambience it should for one built in 1927 and the recent renovations are lovely. You're missing out... More

We stayed with our family over Christmas and had a delightful time. It was our second stay and so much more enjoyable than the big corporate hotels. The fresh French breakfast would be a reason to return over and over again. We even had a conversation with the creator of the delicious pastries. Loved the Inn!

Loved the breakfast and the rooms were very clean. The woman behind the front desk was very nice and I would love to stay again. The TV was the perfect size and had a nice mix of travelers. I would love to come back and stay again!

My husband and I have just returned from a 4 night stay at the Margarita European Inn. What a refreshing change from the sterile, cold and uninteresting large chains we've stayed at in the past. This hotel is simply charming & unique; it has been recently renovated but staying true to its original self. The rooms are lovely; the beds... More

This very quaint hotel is located in a lovely neighborhood. The photos looked beautiful but upon arrival I couldn't help but notice all the peeling paint and cracked wood. Definitely needs a facelift. The bathroom of the tiny room was recently remodeled. But please tell me where would they suggest I put "my stuff" since there is absolutely no counter... More

I stayed at this hotel for a weekend getaway with my husband, and I have to say it was the most comfortable hotel that I have ever been to. The room was clean and very elegant, and the staff was very pleasant. I actually felt like I was in Europe. I will be going back for my birthday this year.

I stayed at the Margarita Euro Inn with my soon to be husband in July. I expected an Americanized fake European hotel ambiance, yet was pleasantly surprised... It felt really like I'm back home! The hotel is obviously renovated but they kept the essence of the old continent which reminded me of back home :). The elevator's sliding gate for... More

My sister and I arrived just after dark on a Thursday evening, and we struggled to even find the hotel. No lights outside or signage, I recognized it from the flags. No curb cut in or even dedicated parking for arrivals. Entrance not marked, over to the left of the building. We brought our roller cases up a step, then... More
