“one of the nicest Hampton Inns”
Reviewed October 12, 2009

We stayed two nights at The Hampton Inn in Skokie and it was one of the nicest ones we have visited in the U.S.. The staff was very friendly, helpful and pleasant. The room was quite large, quiet and clean. Breaksfast was ok, but lots of choices, and well stocked. The breaksfast staff was especially nice. With Halloween coming up, the lobby was decorated with large blow up characters and next to the check in desk was a life sized witch who 'spoke' to you ( really a staffer with a microphone) but it made it fun. There is a Ruby Tuesdays attached to the hotel so it is easy to grab a bite to eat or enjoy an evening drink.

This is a typical Hampton Inn with all the usual amenities. It's located across the street from an open air mall- although who thinks open air is a good idea this close to Lake Michigan, is beyond me. In early September we were already shivering which drove us in to the stores quickly.
The breakfast buffet was excellent- lots of hot choices, bagels, cereal,yogurt, etc.
My boys especially enjoyed the pool toys and flotation items that you usually don't find in pools that aren't private.
My husband is a runner and he found a beautiful path through park at the end of the driveway/street.
We booked it because it was closest to our Northwestern student (about 15 minutes) and liked it enough to book again for graduation weekend next June.

Everything about my stay was great: fast check in, helpful staff, clean and modern room of quality, free breakfast, easy check out, and convenient location. My only complaint was having to pay Chicago prices outside of Chicago proper. A 1 to 1 comparable hotel room at the Hampton Inn at Green Bay cost half as much.

The Hampton Inn is the budget component of the Hilton chain, this property is a comfortable example of the best of the brand. The hotel is located just off the Edens Expressway in Skokie, a short drive from the Old Orchard shopping center. There is free parking adjacent to the hotel, and check-in was pleasant and quick. There is complimentary coffee and newspapers in the lobby all day; a small convenience store offers snacks and sundries. A Ruby Tuesday restaurant is located adjacent to the hotel; a business center offers free printing.

Elevators connect to guest rooms on upper floors; the hotel is easily accessible. The hotel recently added mini-suites, and I was upgraded as a Silver Honors member. The room was huge: a large sitting area with sofa and wide screen TV, a kitchenette with range, microwave and refrigerator, and a separate bedroom /bathroom. There was free wifi, coffee, in-room safe; USA Today was delivered each morning. The king beds were firm and comfortable; the tub is shallow and limited but there was abundant hot water from the shower.

The breakfast buffet has mini-omelets with waffles and bacon or ham, cereals, fruits, breads, juice and coffee. There is a pool and exercise room: the equipment was new and towels and snacks were provided. Overall, this is a very complete and comfortable hotel, good value for the price and well located for families or business trips. The feel is somewhat institutional, but the amenities are very complete, and the mini-suite is wonderful if you can get one.

Decided to stay here in conjunction with a large convention downtown Chicago but the short drive was well worth it. Perfect location right off the expressway, and close proximity to a large open-air mall sweetened the deal. Check-in was a breeze, thanks to an attentive and caring staff, in spite of many problems caused by the third-party reservation service I used (the one that features Bill Shatner in those TV commercials, horrible service). The rooms were spacious, clean and very cozy. Morning breakfast was superb! One of my best stays ever in Chicagoland. I highly recommend this hotel!

Stayed here recently in early August for a family wedding. 2nd time to the Chicago area. I really like the Hampton Inn's breakfast as they have more than the typical "continental breakfast".

Here is the review:

Room: room was small but adequate. Equipped with free in room wifi ( nice!) along with small frigerator and microwave. Bed was comfortable and clean. Noticed some wearing on the furniture but that's a minor point.
Only negative was the shower would not drain well, but again minor point and not something that ruins your stay.

Hotel itself: nice facilities! Excellent weight room with exercise bikes, cardio, and some dumbells. Didn't go in the pool area but was large and covered with hot tub. They have a computer in lobby for use as well as a free printing to print your boarding pass. Breakfast was great. Well stocked and had oatmeal, bagels, cereal, muffins, fruit, along with sausage and egg patties.

Hotel staff: friendly! Always saying hello when we arrived and when we left. I think that's what makes a nice hotel is friendly service and no rudeness as what can happen. Overall great stay and would stay again.

Tips on the area:
If your runner they have a forest park area less than a mile from the hotel! Shopping is practically next door: the Westin mall with high end shops such as Nordstrom etc...close to the 94 for access to downtown.
