“Clean and Friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

I have bad dust and mold allergies and did not have any symptoms during my stay. The room was spacious and clean. The front desk staff were very friendly. When I expressed food allergies, the restaurant manager made accommodations for me.

By mistake and pure happenstance I found myself at this location in Evanston, Ill.
Initially, I thought I booked at another Hilton in Evanston (the Orrington)
At first I was not very happy about the mess up with the reservation, however as it turned out- I was extremely satisfied with the location, guest services, room and amenities.
Very convenient to restaurants, shops, transportation and Northwestern university.
I spent 3 days at this location and was looking to rent a car to go to Old Orchard shopping mall and found a Hertz (?) rental right next door. However, when I asked the front desk about parking, they informed me they had a shuttle that can take guests to stops in Evanston and a little beyond. They were gracious enough to take e to old orchard and picked me back up.
Great workout room and business center. I plan on returning!

I have been staying at this hotel since it opened (approximately 2001?). I am a lecturer for the Center for Public Safety and usually stay up to forty nights a year at this property. If one has to stay that long away from home during the year, it should be some place as comfortable and accommodating as this HGI. The staff is always friendly and very helpful. The hotel is centrally located to the University as well as restaurants and Evanston shopping. It's also a short walk to catch the CTA or Metra trains if you need to run into Chicago. The breakfasts are AMAZING and not overly priced for the freshly made-to-order omelets, bacon, sausage, fruit and breads that are provided. Coffee is provided most hours of the day and it's so good, I walk across the street from my classroom for refills during breaks. A few years back they were having issues with the fire alarm going off randomly (usually around 1 a.m.), but they seem to have worked those bugs out (thankfully). Internet service and cable channels are exceptional and the rooms have the amenities to make an overnight or twenty-night stay very comfortable. I am very thankful to have this wonderful and convenient hotel available for my lengthy stays in the area.

If you are eating out during the evening (or lunchtime), check out Bat 17, which is down the street a couple of blocks and has the best Reuben sandwiches this side of the Hudson River.

The hotel is well maintained, clean and as of 2013 appears to have been freshened with new carpet and room wall coverings. It has good service, a good restaurant for breakfast (I have not eaten lunch or dinner there.) The rooms are comfortable and quiet. The hotel is near Northwestern, plenty of good restaruants and One Rotary Center.

Convenient for visiting Northwestern and surrounding areas. Friendly, helpful staff. Nice-sized rooms. Walking distance to restaurants, shopping and train system. Parking is next door in a public parking area. There is a fee for parking ($13/day) but the hotel will validate the parking sticker so you have in and out priveleges all day.

We were in town to visit my sister. This hotel was in the heart of town, close to restaurants, parking, the train lines and Northwestern University. There was a beautiful breakfast buffet, a 24 hour "mini mart" and friendly, helpful staff. I will definitely stay here again.

Very comfortable room, very friendly and helpful front desk service...parking is next door ( you have to walk outside to get into the hotel) and is about 11-12 per day...not much compared with downtown Chicago, but of course you aren't in downtown Chicago. Easy walk to restaurants and Northwestern campus.
