The Homestead Evanston, Evanston
Cold review
While this is a charming historic hotel it has a huge problem with it’s windows. Built in 1928, so we’re the windows. We were there during a very windy winter storm. Gust of cold air we’re coming through the window with no way to block it. Previous guests left hair clips on the curtains which we put to use. We were cheerfully moved to another room which was only better because the curtains shut. It literally had 4 inches of snow standing on the inside ledge of the air conditioner. We packed it with our bath towels and closed the curtains. It IS a charming hotel but has major window problems.

Safe and beautiful, quiet neighborhood
We always stay at this hotel because it is located with walking distance of all the shopping. If you choose to ride the elevated transit, it’s only a 3 1/2 block walk. You have to park in the parking garage around the corner but the hotel gets a reduced rate for $7 daily—24 hours. There is a complimentary cold breakfast that offers many breads, bagels, pastries, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, cereal, fruit, juice, coffee and more. They also have a nice restaurant and bar onsite. They do need to update the laminated television channel listing as some programs didn’t match up with the Chanels listed. Also, two glasses rather than one glass should be in the room for guests. As these are only minor for all the conveniences received, we plan on returning.

Warm and Welcoming Inn
Love this place! 100 year old Inn with plenty of charm and a great staff of folks who genuinely care about their guests! Very convenient to the lakefront and to Northwestern University!

Slight regret
This is a very old hotel. Classic actually. The bed was awful. The sheets were worn and frayed. It’s cheap to stay in. Convenient location. If I had to do over I would upgrade to a better hotel for comfort sake.
