A great trip and location

Our location was perfect for Chicago. We looked at a couple rooms downtown and then we decided to look here in Evanston. It was a great idea. Easy and close to our friends . Plus there was room to breathe and walk in peace! There were coffee shops and stores in walking distance for that afternoon walk. Our room was clean and comfortable, and there was plenty of space to wrap presents. The walk-in dress closet area was great and the tub was great for a 45 minute salt bath soak! We will come back. Thank you!

Barely worth the low rate

Nothing as shown on website. No restaurant. Not romantic in the least. Only food option was a half empty vending machine.
