Just recently went with a friend for a three day, two night stay. We loved the Graduate Evanston! The beds were just right, which made sleeping away from home so much easier. The shower head was ahhh--mazing and the water was quick to get hot! Don't let the historical looks fool you, the AC was nice and cold, it was easy to get in the room (you don't have to slide in a card, which can sometimes be a hassle), and while there may only be one elevator for everyone to use there was any wait time for it! It was easy to walk around the area and find a variety of dining. There's even a Whole Foods just a block down! Would love to come back to the Graduate Evanston and explore the area more!

We love this little hotel. The location is perfect, on a beautiful, tree lined street. Room was nice and the staff is friendly. It's as comfortable relaxed vibe. Unfortunately some of the amenities were not available during our stay, but it didn't really matter. We've stayed at the Graduate Evanston twice and loved it each time.
