This hotel is a little bit aged. However it is located in beautiful Evanston, with tree lined streets, and beautiful old mansions! The shore of Lake Michigan is only 4 blocks away, and the
park/trail system will take you all the way to Chicago's Downtown. Another nice thing about heading North from downtown is that the traffic always seemed to be going the other way. Smooth pleasant drives.
The hotel staff is excellent. Sam, a very long term employee, will meet you in the parking lot. He is a true gentleman, and very pleasant. Marina and Hugo are part of the bar/restaurant staff and will attend to every need with a smile. They are great people as well. Despite the age of this Hotel, we found our visit to be extremely pleasant! I would return to this hotel if visiting Chicago again. [Less]
