Business traveller, Travelled with partner
Disliked: Staff & service
Location is great in Evanston. Close to shopping, dining and the Northwestern University campus. The staff is not very attentive. The housekeeping service is “on request” but even that way, our room was not cleaned during our 3 night-stay. I had to go down to the front desk to ask for clean towels and pillow cases around 9 pm when we returned from a day of activities. This was not cool. Also, they offered a lobby reataurant that serves breakfast from 6-10 am, but not during holidays; that was not cool either. I won’t go back to this hotel.
