Hilton Garden Inn Chicago North Shore/Evanston

Reviewed July 19, 2013

I booked this hotel because it was #1 ranked hotel in Evanson in Trip Advisor. No doubt, it earns it! The hotel is very convenient, quiet, and clean, within a walking distance from NW University and from the Metra and the train purple line. The door-to-door travel time to downtown Chicago took more than an hour. The room was pleasant and the bed extremely comfortable. Very friendly staff. For 13$ a great breakfast is served and there are other options in downtown Evanston. The swimming pool is very small but other than that this is an excellent choice.

Room Tip: I booked a corner room but it seems that the standart rooms are fine as well since the hotel is quie...

I had a nice stay here. Of all my business travels this summer, this was the most comfy bed (and linens). Nice staff, good location. I didn't get to use the pool, business center, or restaurant so can't comment there. But I would return for sure.

Location is great with easy access to the CTA train, restaurants, movie theater, etc. Staff has always been more than helpful. Rooms are generally comfortable although the air/heating units can be a bit noisy.

Can't say enough on the wonderful experience we had ! A special thanks to Michael . Arrived very stressed! Michael solved all of our problems! The staff were all great! Helping with parking, luggage, dinning.....and even cell phone advice. This rough start turned around by Michael and your staff. A beginning to a wonderful time in Evanston and Chicago! Vicki

Hotel was clean, great location, nice rooms. Heard the breakfast was just ok, but didn't visit it personally. The only negative is that you can hear everything in the room next to you through the bathroom vent.

We stayed for a long weekend for the 4th of July. The hotel is in downtown Evanston and within a short walking distance to tons of restaurants, shopping, Northwestern University, and just a few blocks from the lake. Close to a train station if you want to ride into Chicago. The farmers market is literally right outside the hotel doors on the weekends. Our room was immaculate, the beds were comfortable (although the double beds seemed very small), and the staff was nice. Although it was a holiday weekend and there was a lot going on in Evanston that weekend, our room was very quite (very little sound from outside or the hallway and a quite A/C) and we slept very well. The shower was warm and had good water pressure. We've eaten a lot of hotel breakfast buffets but this was one of the best we have had. Everything seemed fresh and it was as good start to our day (omelettes made to order, french toast, bacon, sausage, warm scones, sliced melon, oatmeal, etc.) My kids enjoyed swimming in the small pool and loved the cookies they got when we checked in. Really no complaints at all, it was a very pleasant stay.

We stayed here as a family over from June 30-July5. My husband is a Hhonors diamond member and we were treated accordingly, though it seemed that the front desk staff could vary between accommodating and surly. We only ate there for breakfast and it was a great way to start the day. The service was friendly and efficient and the selection was great and freshly prepared. The fitness center was effective though the equipment was a bit wobbly. We did not use the indoor pool or spa. The parking was $13 per night but the front desk validated the ticket for in and out privileges.
My only warning would be for a family of four trying to sleep in two double beds. While the select a comfort beds make for a comfortable rest, the size seems to be smaller than normal double beds and are in fact barely bigger than a twin size. The front desk lady told us the hotel was not allowed to provide us with a roll-away but did not give an adequate reason.
We would probably stay here again as the location was great, close to Northwestern U. and in the middle of many shops and restaurants.
