I stayed 2 nights at the Hilton Garden Inn in Evanston while visiting Northwestern University with my son. The hotel is very conveniently located just a few blocks from campus. For $13 a day, the hotel offered parking in an attached garage with unlimited in and out privileges, which we found very helpful. The room on the 4th floor had two very comfortable queen beds with plenty of pillows. The pillows were on the smaller size but since there were so many of them that was not a problem. The bathroom was clean and had nice amenities, about the quality of any reputable 3-star hotel. Although the room faced the main street, it was generally very quiet.
My only problem with this hotel was the business center and wireless service. Wireless internet in the room was very spotty and I often lost the connection. The business center computers simply would not print a document. The man at the computer next to me spent 45 minutes just trying to print a boarding pass. The computer I attempted to use could not open a .pdf document to print (although I was able to view it.) It was clear that the computers were either so old they could not effectively run basic software (I even had problems with Word), or they were both infected with viruses. No excuse for that. However, at the suggestion of the front desk staff, I emailed my document to them & they printed it immediately on their own printers without a problem.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to Evanston visitors. Just don't count on internet access or printing capability of the business center.
