The hotel for us was a better than expected experience. It has a vantage location, right next to the famed Old Orchard Shopping Centre and scores of other stores. The hotel is right next to the Northshore Convention Centre. The restaurant is good. For its price, the gym though small is functionally very good. The half in and half out swimming pool is also very inviting. The hotel is a pleasant and friendly expereince.

Room Tip: All rooms are good and have a good view.

Exceeding expectations is our goal, and I’m so glad we met that goal on your recent stay! Our indoor/outdoor pool is a unique amenity that many of our guests enjoy as well as our recently upgraded fitness center. We are fortunate to have Old Orchard Mall across the street to allow our guests all the shopping and dining options they could ever want. We are so glad you enjoyed everything and genuinely look forward to seeing you on your next visit to the North Shore.

I've stayed in this hotel for business several times, the most recent the week of December 5th. The rooms are large and comfortable, bed is great, but the bathroom is very small -- cannot get two people in at once. The food at the breakfast buffet is very good but a limited selection; this same restaurant serves really good dinners though. The exercise room has pretty much everything you need -- 3 treadmills, 2 elipticals, and a recumbant bike, along with free weights, a weight machine, medicine balls, BOSU, and exercise mats. Location is great too -- close the the freeway and right across the street from a mall.

This hotel has a beautiful lobby, large guest rooms, an excellent staff, and warm chocolate cookie whenever you want one! We stayed here when attending a football game at Northwestern. There is a shuttle to Ryan Field.
The rooms are extremely quiet, with excellent black out curtains. The bathrooms are surprisingly small for the size of the guest rooms. However, the do have large, fluffy towels and nice amenities, and are very clean. The bed was very comfortable with plentry of pillows. In room coffee and tea maker, large flat screen TV.
There is not a free breakfast here, but since it is next to Old Orchard shopping area, plenty of breakfast places are avaiable and relatively inexpensive. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: This hotel is very quiet, so all rooms are nice. If you can, book a king room instead of two queens...

Stayed twice this autumn for business. Was pleasantly surprised. The rooms are ok, nothing special. The ergonomics of the bathroom door seemed to be baffling, however, staff was terrific, cookies were warm, location in northern Chicago suburbs was great. Parking is free. C'mon, how rare is that?
If you are looking for a better than average hotel at a good rate with free internet, free parking and conveniently situated, then this is the place for you.

Thank you for taking the time to review our wonderful property! We love the cookies as well, and you are right, how often can you find free parking in the Chicago area? What we lack in bathroom size we hope we make up for in staff friendliness and other areas under our direct control. We appreciate you staying with us on multiple occasions and genuinely look forward to serving you in the future.

I was in Skokie for a conference and this was the conference hotel. I found it to be a great rate for this area and a pleasant hotel experience. What a treat to have a wonderful warm cookie after a long day of traveling. Their staff was also very professional. It was also great having complimentary wine in the evening during the weekdays. The hotel is in walking distance to an outside, upscale mall with good restaurants and a play area for children. They also helped me with selecting a taxi service (American Taxi) to and from the airport. I could not have had a better taxi driver (Sedrak). If you are visiting in the winter, there is a cozy fireplace area that is a nice relaxing spot. The restaurant is so so but with restaurants nearby, that is not a problem. I did not have time to go into Chicago but it would not have been a problem with public transportation. I would stay there again if in the area.

I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed our warm Doubletree cookies and our Wine Hour which runs every evening Monday thru Thursday. Hopefully there was a spot open near our lobby fireplace so you could enjoy all three at the same time! We definitely accomodate the conference traveler and are thrilled you were so happy with your experience. Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to review our hotel!

We stayed over two nights during Thanksgiving while visiting relatives in Evanston.The hotel is a bit dated but it was very clean, the staff was great, and the beds were very comfortable. The cookies they gave out during check-in were yummy and the Christmas trees and fire in the fireplace made the lobby very inviting. The heater in our room was a bit noisy when it turned on and we were at the end of the building where we could hear the door opening and closing all night so noise was a bit of an issue for us at night. The location is great though - close to tons of restaurants and shopping (there is a mall with just about everything just minutes down the street and Panera, iHop, Old Navy, Best Buy and Jewel grocery store right next door) and it was an easy drive to Evanston. Parking at the hotel was free and there was plenty. The pool area was really nice. Its an indoor/outdoor pool and my kids enjoyed swimming from inside to outside (the water was a little cold though). We would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that's not on the end of the building or near the elevators.
