Holiday Inn Chicago North-Evanston, Evanston
Very Good8.0
Above average but pricy
The room was generally in good shape. The air conditioning, however, was not very strong or reliable. Changing the temperature on the thermostat rarely had any impact. Aside from that, my stay was satisfactory. There is an elevated train that runs every several minutes outside the hotel. It was annoying at first but I eventually tuned it out. I chose this hotel for its proximity to a concert venue, but I'm sure I could have done better price-wise for what I got.

Good option
This is a fine place to stay close to central Evanston. The only downside is that the rooms are a bit noisy (neighbor’s TV, doors slamming in hallway etc)

Nice Hotel, Poor Housekeeping
Not a very helpful staff and room was not cleaned ( dirty dishes left, trash not taken out, Linens not picked up, beds not made). When I called to the front desk for someone to come take care of it they never did.

Perfect spot for our family! Clean and quite.

Would Stay Again
The staff was amazingly kind and helpful. The room was clean, with everything I requested, a very quiet refrigerator, and comfortable bedding. The hotel breakfast was great. The nearby area had restaurants, brick-and-mortar bookstores, nice places to shop, and at least one great non-chain coffee place - all within walking distance. Public transit to the city was also within easy walking distance. We felt safe in the hotel, and even outside in the wee hours of the morning. I would absolutely stay here again on any future trips to Chicago.
