Good for Visiting University

Posted Mar 11, 2015
Pros: Free breakfast Free wifi & printing Good distance from Northwestern Comfortable Bed
Cons: Need to update the heating system, possibly more thorough cleaning of rooms.
Location: Northwestern University, pub across the street, local restaurants a few blocks down
I stayed at the Best Western while I was visiting Northwestern University. Overall the facilities were satisfactory: I was able to print out my flight ticket free of charge, the wifi worked well for a hotel, and there was complimentary breakfast. The staff was friendly and polite and gave me directions to the University while I was there. However, when I first came into my hotel room there were candy wrappers left on the floor and the room was very stuffy due to the antiquated heating system. The bed was very comfortable with plenty of pillows and lots of space, and the price was reasonable enough. Overall, this hotel met my needs - just not the most memorable stay.

Pros: Good location for Evanston
Hotel is fine, did the trick. Just there for one night. But I did notice how genuinely friendly and helpful the front desk staff were.

One night stay

We found the hotel to be comfortable and clean, even though it is undergoing renovations. We had everything we needed and it was a pleasant experience.

Good location, lots of restaurants nearby. Hotel is undergoing a facelift. The room was nicely renovated, but the bathroom common ventilation system was outrageously noisy. Great place to stay for events at Northwestern University.

Not an exceptional hotel, but everything about it is fine (and I rather liked the breakfast).

The hotel was close to dining and nightlife. The staff was friendly and helpful giving directions as we were from out of town and not familiar with the area.

Best Western in Evanston

Posted Jan 28, 2015
Pros: Breakfast was good; manager let me take food to my room to ensure I had something for breakfast at 4 a.m..
Cons: No sleeping during the day due to ongoing remodel project. Need to fix all outside doors so they do not get stuck open. Parking gets flooded.
Location: The location is convenient to downtown Evanston, Metra to Chicago, Northwestern.
My stay was OK. Nothing spectacular happened. Nothing awful happened. There is a parking fee for this hotel.
