“Beautiful property, ideally located”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

This is an historic property that's been updated well by Hilton (it sounds like it's not ALL updated yet). The rooms are small as you would expect in an older hotel, but well appointed. The sheets were really great. Loud heating unit but not as bad as I've heard in some other older buildings. Efficient use of space. Fun lobby bar...very inviting, staff lets you sit forever. Very bright with windows.

Room Tip: I ended up with a view of the air-conditioning unit, in room 403. So avoid "threes" if you...

Nosiest hotel I have ever stayed in and I have stayed in many. Was told I would be in a "quiet corner room" and was woken up multiple times per night from outside and inside noise. Extremely unhappy with my room.

Excellent location and service. Personnel were friendly and helpful. It was a very pleasant stay. The hotel was very comfortable. The hotel was near other places of interest such as the college campus and the local Barnes and Noble store (which was outstanding)

This hotel is old but has been updated. I would appreciate if they cleared out room service trays left in the hallways and cleaned the halls and elevator more often. But the rooms are fine, even though the bathrooms are tiny. The location is very convenient to Northwestern, the beach, and many stores and restaurants. The bar is fine but the breakfast area was only so-so. At first they put me in a room on the 3rd floor and there was only half of a window due to a strange airconditioner that took up most of the window space. They arranged for me to have a room on a higher floor with a complete window, thank goodness.

Room Tip: Get a room on a higher level, facing Lake Michigan.

Clean and spacious rooms. A great value. Very convenient to campus and public transportation. The fitness center was so nice. They provides water bottles, ear buds and towels. Nice equipment too. I did not eat at the hotel but there are many dining options within walking distance!

I stayed here for a couple nights while visiting Northwestern. It's in downtown Evanston and puts you within a 3 minute walk to several restaurants, coffee shops, and lots of other things. It's less than a 10 minute walk to the beach. The hotel seems to be in much better shape than when I was in grad school at NU. Loved the mattress; I slept like a baby. I will definitely stay here again.

An older hotel, updated by Hilton, the Orrington offers excellent value for the money. Comfortable room, very helpful and hospitable staff who were responsive to every situation. Five minutes from campus easily reached by taxi (I was there in winter). Two caveats: street side rooms are not for the noise-sensitive. The window shutters allow some light to bleed through. So if you are sensitive to those kinds of things, earplugs and a sleep mask may be needed. A good hotel, I will return.
