Hilton Orrington is situated in the heart of the college town of Evanston. A picturesque lakeshore metropolis, exuding charm and Wildcat pride. Home to the Wildcats of Northwestern University, you'll be immersed in the scholarly liveliness of collegiate life, as well as plentiful recreational lake town activities and the distinct authenticity of mom-and-pop shops, eateries, distilleries, and breweries moments to downtown Chicago.

Walk through the historic tree-lined streets of Evanston, to gain a greater appreciation of the nineteenth-century architectural style, enjoy a sun-soaked day at Light House or Clark Street Beach, along the shoreline of Lake Michigan. Immerse into the culture with a visit to Frances Willard House Museum, Halim Time & Glass Museum, Block Museum of Art, Evanston History Century, Gross Point Light House, or the Emil Bach House, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

(1) Room 802 was dirty and room service didn’t show up to clean on Friday September 17, 2022. (2) Bathroom was so small it was impossible to close the door and still use the sink comfortably. (3) Hilton website pictures are deceptive: they show renovated rooms but actually the hotel rooms are old and run down. This deception by Hilton severely brings down the reputation of Hilton hotels. I will avoid all the Hilton brands from now on.

aside from the lakefront. The central location is perfect & the art fair was an added bonus. And extra points for whomever was in charge of weather! I was surprised to find the rate was lower than GI down the street.

We stayed at this location for one night based on its proximity to Northwestern's campus and several good restaurants. The other reviews are correct in that the rooms are dated and walls are thin. We also experienced the restaurant and food service being closed by our 10pm arrival as well as our 11am departure. The room itself was fine for one night, but not in keeping with what we generally experience with a Hilton. That said I was impressed by the follow up by management. I completed the survey link after check-out and they are receptive to feedback. The property is undoubtedly impacted by the pandemic as with everything else these days. I am hopeful the experience improves for others as the hotel restaffs and makes improvements. In the meantime, it is a quick walk to a great walking path along the beach and through Northwestern. There are also good restaurants close by.

Dirty dirty dirty. Example: Rug so dirty that you leave muddy footprints in the tub. There is probably a nicer roadside motel for $49 nearby. (Northwestern people -- any other choice would be better.)

Unfriendly and unhelpful reception staff. Reception did not take our Hilton number and said it was not useful! Paper thin walls so you can hear tv and people speaking through the walks! Mould on ceiling was widespread and disgusting.

Granted, we stayed at a very busy and stressful time. Given that, the experience could not have been worse.: the whole place had an odd smell, no internet, no hot water on the second night, was severely understaffed so there was no one to pick up the phone to tell there was no hot water or internet, the restaurant was closed for no apparent reason, surly valet staff lost our keys but kept insisting the black car they brought up was our car when in fact we had a white car, the lobby incidental shop was empty of any water or snacks except a few leftover things no one wanted. No coffee. Anywhere, ever. Like us, the other guests were just laughing after a while at how awful it all was. What a waste for Hilton on a potential money maker. Never again.

Great location, staff, cleanliness and overall service. Highly recommend. The staff were friendly. The Farmhouse restaurant on premise was outstanding. The food drinks and atmosphere were very nice. We will be back.

I’m being generous by giving it 2 stars. Calling this place a Hilton is like calling me a brain surgeon. You can tell at one time this was a nice hotel. The bones are there and the location is good. But it’s tired. Everything is worn and the AC unit in the room was hands down the loudest I’ve ever encountered. I’ve been in 737’s taking off that were quieter. But the most disappointing aspect of all was the lack of service and overall attitude of the staff. It was obvious they were doing you a favor by doing their job. I’ve never had a check in experience where the person checking you in made me wait 5 minutes without even looking up or acknowledging and once she did look up I was greeted with “name?” That was the extent of the conversation. No welcome. No thank you. No here’s your room key. She just handed me the jacket with the key and looked at me. I was like WTF just happened. One valet attendant to deal with 40 cars and one the biggest gong shows I ever seen when it comes to parking your car. We will be staying in the area a lot over the next four years as we have one going to school here. But I will gladly drive an extra few miles to campus for a better experience.

This experience broke our hearts, as we have stayed here many times before (over a 30 year period) and remember what the hotel used to be. When we arrived and were checking in, the woman at the desk did not want to get of of the phone to help anyone. No one was around to help her. She just said "last name" not the usual "how can I help you?" or "welcome to the blah blah hotel." When we got to the room, it was filthy--dusty and dirty carpet. When I went to take a shower, I realized there were no towels. The soap was dirty from the paint coming off of the soap dish onto the soap. No ice in the ice machine on our floor. The list goes on. With two of us trying--we could toggle the shower for enough water to rinse off, but it was not what you would think of as a real shower. When we left, there was only one valet to get individual car by car--which was a problem as the reason we came was to go to an event. We were VERY lucky we started to try to check out early as the front desk was no more competent than before. I later learned from friends in Evanston that this hotel had closed during the pandemic. They are not ready to re-open, operate, and meet basic (what I assume Hilton has) standards.

The Hilton Orrington in Evanston is a great hotel to vacation or for business. We love dining, especially the breakfast experience at the hotel restaurant. We like to sit outdoors in the fresh air with views of the city during breakfast. It's a pleasant way to start your day. Highly Recommended. Love to Travel? Check out our youtube channel, "From Paris With Love", Getting Around Paris" for informative reviews and information on places like the Hilton and especially travel overseas to Paris.
