DoubleTree by Hilton Chicago North Shore
Ranked #2 of 4 Hotels in Skokie
Reviewed December 7, 2012

We stayed at the Doubletree due to its location to downtown Chicago. We know we have to do some driving so my daughter can see her friends so we like to try and be with/in 1/2 hour. This is 15 min with no traffic. However the weekend we went was the parade in Dwtn Chicago with 3 Million extra people.
Our hotel was awesome. Upon checking in we were given 3 warm chocolate chip cookies that were out of this world. Desk clerk was extreemly friendly and helpful.
It was a drag late friday when the hotel was full and only 2 elevator working. and a real drag on Sunday when only 1 elevator was working.
Rooms were clean, small fridge was nice in room. great resturant on site food was excellent.
Mall right across the street so when girls were sleeping off their hangover I could go shop

If there was one thing to change and this is HUGE. they need to put queen beds in the room. Double beds just dont fit 2 people unless your kids

Room Tip: We had room 217. it was wonderful to put our water and pop out the window on the roof to stay cool...

My grandson's night-time party was held in the ballroom in the top floor of the hotel, with an exciting view of Chicago. The hors d'oeuvres, food and service where all very good. I would recommend it for your event.

i picked a busy time to travel to chicago-with the ryder cup and the marathon back to back...left with little to choose from i stayed at the doubletree in chicago for 3 nights before moving into downtown...
it's a standard doubletree-the plus is the very cheerful front desk and service staff in the restaurants...whether its organizing cabs or suggesting restaurants in down-town. the breakfast was good, and has enough choices for a vegetarian like me...
its in a far away suburb, so one would stay here only if they need to be in that side of town.

I stay at the Doubletree- Skokie for business a few times a year. The meeting rooms are nice the hotel staff is friendly and responsive. The restaurant is adequate.

I have experienced a clear decline in the upkeep of the property over the last couple of years...especially the common areas. The hallways to the rooms are in need of new carpet, paint and a good cleaning. The rooms are very tired, especially the bathrooms. Elevators are old and take forever. Well below the standard of other Doubletrees.

Hi Colin,

Thank you for your thoughtful review. As a repeat guest, your comments are incredibly valuable. We appreciate your continued business and want to let you know about some planned improvements to the hotel. Any day now, we will have completed a huge elevator modernization project which I know you will be pleased with next time you visit. It is true that our elevators were slow, but soon they will be much faster and smarter. Additionally, the other items you mentioned are all on our radar and projects are being planned. We are constantly working to improve our hotel and take pride in providing our guests with an experience that we can be proud of.

We welcome you back for another stay soon and thank you again for being our guest.

Great entry point to Chicago if coming in from North/Northwest. Right next to large shopping area and Northwestern University. Lot's of choices in the area. Hotel has friendly staff, clean rooms and is priced for budget conscious travelers. No breakfast included but nearby choices abundant.

Room Tip: We were on eleventh floor and elevators ran quick and smooth for us. No worry.
