“excellent hotel next to northwestern university”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

staff, hotel and location are excellent for a visit in Evanston or Northwestern University. Staff was friendly and courteous. Very clean. Location was great. Walked everywhere around this hotel for shopping, dining or other experiences. No need for a car, near the rail system. Every thing within blocks of the hotel. need to pay for valet parking if you have a car.

This hotel is beautiful. It is in a great location, walking distance to many restaraunts and a few blocks from the beach. The rooms are small, especially the bathrooms as typical in a old hotel. It is pretty well maintained and the staff are wonderful. Every interaction with a staff member was a delight. Very service oriented, I felt that they genuinely cared that I enjoyed my stay.

I have stayed at the Orrington off and on over the last decade. It is the closest hotel to the Northwestern campus and near plenty of great restaurants as well as a Whole Foods. The rooms are nice but tend to be a bit smaller than those at the Hilton Garden Inn. The gym offers enough for a good workout too.

I experienced excellent customer service at this hotel. It is an old building, so the rooms are small, but it is right in the heart of downtown Evanston. Walking distance to everything. The front desk staff, doormen, valet parking made it extra special.

Had an excellent stay at this hotel for business purposes. The location is fantastic with many, many interesting restaurants within a very short walk. Only 3 blocks from Lake Michigan and just a little further walk to Northwestern. I'd recommend this hotel for any stay in the Chicago area.

I loved the Hilton/Orrington. The bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in. It was just the right mix of elegant and pampering but not overly pretentious. Definitely the most charming Hilton I've ever stayed at. The staff was very helpful, the location is very convenient, and I'm hoping to have a chance to stay here again. It would have been nice to have a pool and parking is on the expensive side, but otherwise it was a treat to stay here.

We stayed to take our daughter to visit Northwestern. We payed for a 'larger' room. Room was small, as the hotel is historic. The bathroom doors are noisy (french doors) and the room wasn't perfectly dust free. The staff was very nice and quick to bring our car and bags etc. We did not, however, realize that we were staying at a hotel where we would have to tip and use those services (no free parking) so that expense was unexpected. Not really a 'family' hotel, but it was a nice place to stay so we could park once and walk Evanston and the college, instead of drive.
