We went to Evanston to tour Northwestern University and initially made the mistake of booking a Best Western in Morton Grove. Big mistake. When we discovered our error we called the BW in Evanston to see if they had rooms. On all the hotel sites it lists this hotel's rate as $249.00 per night, which was a bit more than we wanted to spend since we needed two rooms. When I called, the woman asked if we were in town for anything special and I replied that we were going to Northwestern. She immediately discounted the rate from $249.00 a night down to $109.00. Why??? It was graduation the next day. We did not know this. Was this hotel worth $249.00 a night? Absolutely not. It is an older hotel with a much needed facelift. The town of Evanston is nice enough with decent pubs and shopping. Unfortunately, there isn't a lot of options there. When we arrived to check in one of the hotel desk clerks "Westly" was in a heated argument on the phone with a guest about canceling a room.. He was extremely rude and loud and everyone who was in the lobby overheard the conversation. When he finished he said "Won that one!" Very unprofessional.
