Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by chessmom Busy Signal for three hours
We originally planned to have dinner in downtown Chicago and then head over to see a show at the Second City while our boys (14 & 15) would watch a movie at the local mall and then catch the hotel shuttle back. We verified with the manager that the shuttle would run until 11 PM before we dropped them off.
We had to leave in the middle of dinner (wasting our time, bottle of wine and nonrefundable comedy club tickets) because the hotel would not pick up their phone. Our boys could not call the hotel to ask to be picked up so we abandoned our plans and rushed back to get them. The same manager who confirmed that the shuttle would be available told me that there was a break down in technology and that there was nothing she could do. Our rare evening out was ruin and the management did not care. Two tickets to the breakfast buffet does not make up for $75 dollars of show tickets and night stressed out calling the hotel every 45 seconds.
Our room was right next to an elevator and thus loud. Housekeeping never came although we asked.

I would recommend this hotel anytime you need to stay somewhere where the staff are friendly and helpful. My first time there, I was very please with everything. I am staying again.
The location is great and this hotel also has a shutte that will take you somewhere to shop if you do not have transportation.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by hotelguru78 A place to sleep
We stayed the weekend while attending a conference onsite. the room was fine, the building is old and not really updated. The TV in the room was so old and outdated that we couldn't plug a computer into it as it had NO ports. There was a wedding on Saturday, and it took over the property to the point that we had no where to park our car. I spent one day working in the room, and did not need it cleaned, but no one even knocked to drop off coffee for the next morning. The following day, we returned to the room at 2 and it had not been cleaned, we had to call - even then the staff did not leave any shampoo/soap etc.
The rooms have sleep number beds which we had never slept on, and they are basically blow up beds. It should have been a perk, but ended up as a back killer.
The staff was nice.
The pool is OUTSIDE....in Chicago - really?!

This was the second time I have stayed at Crowne Plaza Chicago-Northbrook. The staff is excellent! Could not ask for better service or attention. The buffets offered in the dining room are very good. The rooms are comfortable and the beds offer a truly good nights sleep. The only thing they lack is in an indoor pool. Being in Chicago, someone missed the boat on this one :(
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cruisertom great bed and the room rate was very reasonable
My only dislike for my entire stay was, that when entering and leaving the front enterance of the hotel, you ALWAYS had to walk thru the smell of cigarette smoke. I know that the hotel is smoke free which I love, but someone that needs to smoke needs to somewhere else and not exposing everyone else to that smell.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by farmgirl085 Excellent for corporate business
Stayed here as part of a 3 day conference. Overall, the staff was kind, the rooms were comfortable and fairly soundproof, and I really enjoyed my stay. A few minor things: used the business center, where one of 3 computers was not usable (not turned on) and on the second of 3, I attempted to print a page for a presentation, but the printer was out of ink. Other small issues: smeared dirt on the light switch, a few odd circular impressions on my wall (as though someone forcefully poked something into it) and a pink stain on the bathroom counter. Excepting the light switch, all surfaces, including the tub/shower were exceptionally clean. Finally, good food in the restaurant, but kind of pricy, and the service was very slow. Wait staff was kind, though, and it may be an organizational issue. Even with these minor things, I would stay again with no qualms.

The rooms are beautiful - I've been staying here for years and they have been upgraded and have very nice linens. Nice touches with mood-air freshener and lotions.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by OldGordie Good bed, food and service . Room HVAC was fickle.
Spent 10 nights here for an Allstate training program. Staff was always very courteous, professional and competent. Restaurant food and service were very good as was the bar staff. Room AC was unpredictable as it may function well one night and then not the next. Woke up uncomfortable and sweaty more than one night. Internet booted you off easily too. I am probably being overly critical as it is a clean, nice comfortable hotel over all and an outstanding value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jimgee47 They are doing a great job.
I read the reviews before I came to the property. I guess some of the poorer reviewers were not staying in the same place that I stayed. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious and clean. I have no problem saying that I will be back and I can recommend the property to friends. Keep up the great work.

I have stayed at this hotel location a number of times. I find the atmosphere quite comfortable and the hotel personnel are at all times very professional. Kudos to the front desk personnel such as Arlet and Terri for taking the time to ensure the stay was what I expecteded. Also a big thank you to Alma Estrada (Guest Services Manager) for her attention given to a issue with the hotel and IHG. Resturant service personnel such as Anthony pay attention to customer requests and deliver with "flying colours". Good show!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HappyredneckCamper Liked the place but...
Really enjoyed my stay. Staff was very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. My only issue was the WiFi. It was non existent and when you could get a signal, it was as slow as molasses. I would say an upgrade is needed and would be a huge positive for this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kevo63 Dont forget to pay a visit to the Bar & Grill
Luis & Ramon are the best Bartenders in town. They make you feel at home and take good care of you. They always receive you with a smile and are very couteous. And every now and then they can tell you a great joke and make you laugh. The food is great as well so it is a perfect combination.
Keep up the good work Compadres!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by goobersoh An Enjoyable Place to Stay in the Chicago area
This Crowne Plaza was a very enjoyable place to stay during Northwestern's Homecoming weekend. The service was A++ and the quality of the Saturday morning breakfast buffet was excellent. The price was extremely reasonable. We will try to stay here again when we come back for a visit to Evanston or the north shore.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Canadian2000 Noisy Room
This was the second time I was in this hotel. The first one was a good experience, but this one was awful. The room had so many noises I could hardly sleep! There was noise coming from the bathroom (the fan), and from the fridge, and I could not sleep at all.
I did not have the time to talk to anyone because I was very busy there.

I enjoyed my stay for a training for my new career. The staff were very nice and hospitable. It was quite in the rooms and the rooms were roomy enough to stretch out in. I will go back again on my next visit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fatherofthebride13 Wedding guests were well accommodated!
Both the bride and groom's families and friends were well cared for and experienced a very pleasant stay at this Crowne Plaza. Friendly front desk staff, gracious wait staff in the dining room, and excellent care by room service combined to make our wedding weekend memorable and enjoyable. As the bride's parents, my wife and I hosted family and friends in 5 other rooms, and everyone mentioned what a wonderful experience they had. Our thanks to this Crowne Plaza for a weekend to remember!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Michael0815 Poor WIFI/Internet, old infrastructure, friendly staff
I stayed several times at this location and need to say that the staff is really customer oriented and friendly and helpful. IHG Rewards recognition is very well.
Biggest challenge is the Infrastructure and here big bucks need to be invested. The WIFI simply does not work, interrupts all the time and then you need to log in again. Un-usable, especially when the hotel is not half-empty. Landline connection did not work either and I called the front desk. They said they will call Engineering, but nothing happened. Result was that I could finish my work because of the lack of Internet connection. This is not acceptable and in the future I will be forced to stay somewhere else in the area and use this just as a back up hotel because I need to stay online and productive. It's a pitty for the friendly and courtageous staff and their efforts, which I will miss.
And the bathrooms need to be up-dated. They are from the Sixties/Seventies and even sometimes the water stopps running!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Barefoot48 Great hospitality,great service!
I have stayed at this hotel several times over the years and saw a great improvement! I come on business and don't really like the upstairs ballroom because of the access and low ceilings. On another note, the rooms that have been renovated are excellent and I enjoyed my space while there for 4 nights. The front desk staff were excellent in service and the food in the hotel was pretty good. there are lots of things to do and places to go close by and they provide a suttle. I enjoyed my stay!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tracys0926 Great service, food, staff, etc
Was sent to this location for a 2 week class. I have traveled a lot in the past and stayed in numerous hotels for weeks at a time. This was a nice surprise as I was not familiar with the Crowne Plaza or the area. Shuttles to and from class each day were good (back from class one driver would smoke in the little van before he picked us up and you could smell it) Shuttles if you wanted to go to store or dinner, etc were smooth. Resturant/Bar staff were great, always good attitude and the food at this location was wonderful! I did not eat out as I found no need to leave since the food and service were so good here. I had one small issue I addressed with the front desk and manager, they addressed it quickly and resolved. Busy busy location during the weeks, weekends were much quieter which made relaxing by the pool or eating outside very nice! Weather this time of year was great too!

Stay here one week a year on business. Do not remember having internet connection problems in the past, but this trip it was terrible. Business colleagues staying in rooms in other parts of the hotel had similar problems. I strongly urge this property to upgrade internet service. Business travelers shouldn't stay here until they do. Everything else was good to excellent.
