My husband and I came into town for his 40-year High School reunion It was a great experience!After a long drive and exhaustion, I called the hotel to see if we would be able to check in early Maria was the sweetest and told us we could

That set the tone for the perfect stayThe rest of the staff was very friendly Beautiful hotel and cleanTo it off everything was within walking distanceWe had a wonderful stay and will be back

Vinh Le

Despite the other reviews, I went anyway and to find that people there are really nice especially Maria Just a hello and we had a great conversation about life, great customer service The hotel may need some upgrades but don’t we all; I think we should stop judging and just focus on the positive sides of thing and just enjoy it

Cause if you are able to be at a Doubletree Hilton during this pandemic time, pat yourself on the back and just go enjoy! ❤️ For me the highlight was meeting another like minded person and connecting while enjoying the Pool that indoor outdoor pool as you can see in my pictures is def amazing Go live it up and Thank you Hilton for a relaxed time much needed

Eric Bell

Service was pretty good but the nightly fee they charge for what amounts to tips for housekeeping was kind of cheap If the housekeeping is good I’ll tip accordingly, but don’t fail to disclose this when I book it then I find out when I get there that it’s mandatory Overall pretty good hotel, nice and clean, but I didn’t get a chance to visit the attached restaurant and the shuttle service isn’t very reliable as I had to hail a few ubers

The hotel itself wasn’t brand new, but they were remodeling and was clean The staff was wonderful and they worked very hard short staffed Management was excellent

Price was very fair for the location I love staying at Hilton Hotels because of the consistency! The restaurant was very nice and the pool and work out room were also very clean Food prices were a little high, but for the convenience, I would say it was reasonable This was one of my best experiences for a long weekend with family and very close to our venue I would stay here again

jen S

Clean rooms, comfy beds , very quite for the hotel to be packedDefinitely accommodating to children heated pool area with splash pad heated poolAnd hot tub), front desk staff were very accommodating and nice WouldGive the breakfast service a B onlyDue to the waitress not being being pleasant or informative

Hotel looks better in person website pictures seems older

Ciao Bella

Very nice hotel, super friendly staff I love that it is very easy to get to the All State Arena Yes parking is $18, but the majority of hotels in Chicago charge for parking so there is no point in griping about it

But I do have one complaint the room we were assigned on the 5th floor had very high beds making it difficult to get into bed I even looked around the room for a step stool or something I was able to get in bed but was a little hard If I hadn’t been able to I would have asked for another room Other than that, the room was very clean, loved that the bathroom smelled like a swimming pool (not overpowering) I would definitely stay here again when in Chicago

Beautiful room, warm and welcoming staff, and a historical building given new life It’s a magical spot I loved the welcome we got, multiple staff members helping us check in and giving tips and recommendations

The building is gorgeous I am not a fan of the musky woodsy scent they are curating in the lobby but I trust their process otherwise Our room was clean, cozy, and even has a partial view of the lakeThe restaurant on site was great! The food is fresh and hearty and the staff was so friendly and helpful I wish it was easier to get food to your room from the hotel! The pigs in a blanket and bacon mac were a great way to wind down a long dayThe bar to the left of the entrance had the most welcoming bartender who made me a delicious bourbon drink with a bit of a light finish I’d gladly drink again The bar space is the attached photo!Thanks for the wonderful welcome! We are excited to be here the next few days


My boyfriend and I had a lovely stay here! The hotel is clean and provides a great history behind its location, and the staff is incredibly friendly The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the hotel key cards are actually made to look like famous NU alumni student ID’sOur stay was special because of the bartender, Tara

She made excellent conversation and was extremely accommodating when my partner and I came in right when the bar closed Her kindness made our night and elevated our experience here

Ken Mann

Really poor customer service ruins an otherwise interesting hotel that’s loaded with charmThe joy of staying in a place that’s not a cookie cutter chain A place with a wonderful personality

The staff is warm and courteous with no canned speeches What a pleasure talking a real peopleThere’s a refrigerator in the room and your 1 and 1/2 blocks from a Whole Foods marketSince there’s only one elevator and it’s very slow, I suggest booking a floor you can walk to

Lisa Wells

Based on the pictures, location and 3 star rating, I thought this would be a great place to stay However, I was not pleased The hotel is a 2

5 star at best The attention to detail is lacking The light switches in my room needed cleaning, lack of warm/hot water in the shower, the bed ruffle looked like a balled up Kleenex and most importantly the lack of access for people with mobility issues I had to drag my suitcase up the entrance stairs(which I have trouble using) There is a contraption that appeared to be a lift for someone disabled but it was not working I think it is important to state that when a customer makes a reservation because it is a deal breaker And I am guessing it is not ADA compliant

Ziyad SM

The location of the hotel is convenient if you don’t want to stay in downtown Chicago The neighborhood is quiet, safe, and walkable Restaurants, groceries, and coffee shops are located within a 5 minute walk

The reception and check in process was more than satisfying The room was clean but the beds, carpet, and curtains are old and smell bad, it’s time for changing them $18 for overnight parking is quite expensive for that area The train rails are across the street from the hotel, and I could hear it from the 3rd floor in my room

Max Jemison

Terrible value for ~$100 a night First room we were in did not have a working toilet Ended up getting moved to another room and guess what? No hot water

Along with all of that, you need a card to get in your room, to access the building from the parking garage, and to work the elevator That’s totally okay when you’re actually given cards that work Multiple times my card(s) didn’t work on the readers and I had to get new cards Customer service kinda sucked but at least they were nice Would not recommend this hotel

Very nice hotel with nice clean accommodations Beds were comfortable The pool was huge and nice and warm

We enjoyed it very much Staff was friendly and the hotel was at a good location We had an accessible room at our previous Hampton hotel and would have preferred that here because the shower was a bit small Overall we had a nice time and would definitely book here to stay again

Mohammad Hussain

My stay here was excellent! The hotel was nice and clean, the breakfast in the morning was very much appreciated, staff was very nice, they were able to meet my preferences and requests, the parking garage they have is useful, the room was nice and overall the building seemed to be in really nice shape The ONLY thing I found odd (not even a complaint but more of a suggestion) is the bathroom door didn’t seem to have a lock on it, it was just a sliding door Would suggest adding locks to those bathroom doors but other than that, this was a great place to stay!

Kelly Marin

Booked two nights here and had a great stay Our room was very large for a hotel My kids were like biggest hotel room we have ever been in mom

We stayed with 2 queens and a pull out The staff was super friendly and the breakfast was decent for a hotel breakfast Parking was easy Easy access to the airport All in all a great stay!

Booked a king room Got double full size beds that barely fit both of us Both beds didn’t use a fitted sheets, which is fine if the flat sheets actually covered the mattress

Both were not completely covering the mattress at the foot of the bedAirport shuttle arrived and left late Appeared to just be sitting on the side of the hotel across the street until 5am where it pulled up to pick up people there before coming over to the Doubletree If it cannot leave on the hour as stated, the time should be adjusted Shuttle driver left the door shut until loading all bags making us wait, before letting everyone on (although there were guests from the other hotel already on the shuttle)! Why would it matter if people are already on? I’ve seen this before at this hotel during the winter thinking it I’d appropriate to have guests wait in freezing weather to board

John Miller

First impression of my visit this past weekend (6/10/22) was that this place was going to be great The lobby was impressive and well maintained and check-in was friendly and efficient Unfortunately this trend did not continue

Once we reached the ninth floor the halls were overly warm a thermostat on the wall near the elevator stated it was 77 degrees and it remained that way our entire stay My group and I were treated to various unpleasant smells over the course of our weekend stay in the same hallway Again our first impressions of the room were great but that faded as the weekend drew on A moderate sized stain on the carpet we discovered when we moved a chair to play board games, small spots of peeling wallpaper, messy grout in the bathroom shower, incredibly dirty AC/heater vent, and mini fridge but no microwave were amongst the biggest annoyances for a room of the price range Breakfast was the biggest surprise, there was a buffet with a pretty standard spread of items like scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, potatoes, cereal, and a fruit bar We were waved over to a table and then went to get our food, some of the items that should have been cold were room temp like the cottage cheese Imagine our surprise when the man who waved us to the table brought us checks as it was not posted anywhere or ever told to us that this was not complimentary like it is a “lower” caliber hotels After tax something like $21 per person for this buffet One of our group only had a small bowl of cereal and a glass of water Overall very disappointed

Jesús Wong

Great place to stayRooms were ample and nicely furnished, I like coffee pots that do not use pods My room had a tub, unfortunately didn’t had a chance to enjoy it

Location is unbeatable, walking distance to the outlets and very convenient shuttle service to the airportEven taking the CTA train is just a 10 minutes walk awayFront desk helped out group a lot, we had special requests and they worked hard to help usGreat place to stay, the welcome cookie is a nice touch

Staff was extremely courteous I booked the room the night before our stay Got an excellent room, very clean and spacious

Special shout out to the young lady at reception, upon checkout she mentioned that my daughter didn’t have a coat and that it was like 10 degrees outside Which made me realize we left it on the chair in the room I am extremely grateful for the great customer relations this young lady provided If I’m ever back in town this is where I’ll be staying I wish I could remember her name, but we checked out around 11 am on March 12 2022

Piriyatharisini Thamilselvan

The rooms were good and spacious There were all basic electronics like coffee maker, microwave, refrigerator, hairdryer, iron box and table, safety locker and TV set Morning breakfast was really good and ample

The potatoes and eggs were warm and comforting In the evening the UNO Pizzeria served good The only con was the cooling cycles in rooms were bit uneven but was manageable with constant fan But overall we had a comfortable stay for 3 days with a toddler and an infant

La Reina Harris

My room was comfortable and the floor I was on was quiet The manager that assisted me when I called at 0400 while at work was very helpful, she checked to see if rooms were available for an early check-in request Luckily she did have a room for me and greeted me by name upon my arrival

One downside to this wonderful work-business stay for me, the flat-affect African American female working the front desk on 4/17 was a bit short in her demeanor and she had the nerve to say she spoke with me at 0400 Not! She clearly has no accent off any kind People who want to claim good deeds who’ve done nothing are not to be trusted, including those who lack customer service skills for a major hotel chain I will make sure to refer this hotel to my Nurse & Dr colleagues for their business travel trips

I stayed here fromDec5to present In that time I was able to observe the staff, cleaning, etc

There are so many people I am grateful to This is a top rate hotel! The people at the front desk are amazing In particular I want to mention Olivia who went out of her way to make me feel welcome during my very long stay She is the paragon of competence and professionalism And yet she always had time to give my dog extra attention and care The hotel is quiet and very well run The black out curtains , the pool and other amenities were much appreciated! I was here for a long stay due to the unfortunate flooding of my home I felt welcomed as a new guest each day I wish I could mention in name each person, from cleansing staff to so many others but there is not enough room for me to do so This is a wonderful and well run hotel

Jose Martinez

I stayed recently for a weekend Check in was quick and easy Front desk staff was always friendly and would greet you if possible

The only reason I’m giving this location 3 stars is for the cleanliness of the bathroom A lot of Hair in the shower Under the toilet seat there was brown marking which seemed like excrement Sink didn’t seem like it was clean

Deep Chatterjee

Good place to stay for a short trip Rooms are spacious, at least mine was I didn’t get to check out their pool or gym etc, but I heard other guests saying that it’s good

Breakfast is not included, and there is no complimentary bottled water But it’s conveniently located to cafés and restaurants Parking is around $20 a night in a parking garage adjacent to the hotel Also you can go see the lake if you walk 10-15 mins

We have stayed at this hotel a number of times over the last few years while visiting my brother in town Every stay has been wonderful Good breakfast

Clean rooms Great service Great location off of I-94 The only to be aware of is the lack of housekeeping during your stay at this property Since the pandemic started, housekeeping during your stay is by request only We have requested towels and/or housekeeping services during our stay, and they have already done a great job (we travel with two little kids)! We would definitely recommend this hotel to others

Jessica Barr

The hotel is lovely and the staff were very friendly The room was large, clean, and quiet The shades blocked out all the light from the parking lot which I loved

The bed and bedding was comfortable The parking is free and there were plenty of spaces My only complaint was the breakfast It was really just packaged food I would stay here again and just not get the breakfast option

Kendra Arthur

My family and I stayed here for 12 nights when we were moving The suite we had was very spacious (1 bedroom with 2 queen beds, living room, kitchenette) for the 3 of us and our 2 cats The staff was always very friendly and the breakfast was good and convenient

The gym is mainly cardio machines with a few free weights and the pool was a nice addition The location was great for shopping and dining and getting to where we needed to be We were very happy with our stay!

Good hotel Quite busy but patrons and staff are good citizens Room good for being a budget hotel

Can’t find better bargain Relax in indoor heated pool – good for kids to enjoy Great free breakfast Good place to stay outside of downtown Although not too far from downtown, traffic doesn’t do justice though Expect highway traffic delays as part of your trip

Wei Y

Just had a family stay at one of the corner suites The room was relatively spacious and looked great with lots of windows though we had the curtains closed mostly due to the sun The décor and the furniture were slightly outdated, feels a bit retro but still in a classy taste which I like

The kitchen area was a bit small but manageable The sink counter space was adequate but hope they utilize the extra space on the side during remodeling Tub and toilet “room” was a little awkward when opening the door since the toilet is in close proximity with the door, but the area was clean, no damages, no rattling shower plumbing fixtures and sloppy caulking job Tub drains well! Beds were comfortable The thing I loved the most about this hotel was the AC unit, it’s whispering quite unlike most other hotels The irony is, the noise from I90 was quite loud Staff member were very accommodating and friendly Having Outback right attached to the hotel worked out great The location is near the Cumberland blue line station You can walk but there is a section of the route doesn’t have sidewalk starting from Hooters So this may not suitable for people with suitcases The area feels safe overall (during the day)

Oumar Shariff

My favorite place to stay in Chicago Martha the manager is amazing and always has a smile on her face They will go all out to accommodate guests

The airport shuttle is also a huge plus Lots of choices to stay at near the airport but this hotel consistently provides excellent service It’s my home away from home in Chicago I don’t have one negative thing to say about this place They also have underground guest parking that helps with the weather in Chicago

This hotel is a hidden gem! We stayed in a suite & had everything we needed in plenty of space Every question or request that we had was quickly & happily fulfilled The breakfast was great

The beds were extremely comfortable The only negative is that the pool was closed at the time The A/C worked easily and we’ll (not always the case elsewhere) The towels were superb, soft & fluffy & absorbent The restaurant next door was superb as well

Scott Champion

Six Star Service!! Above the expectation We needed a park n fly with a stay on the night of our return flight ESTIA was perfect

I have never heard of this “brand” so was skepticalDay before departure received a call from the hotel to ask me what time I would need a shuttle when I arrivedVery good communication to process when we returned Informative wallet card given to me for referenceHere is the sixth star part: Our flight arrived about 20 minutes early As I was walking through the airport to baggage/shuttle area I received a phone call (11:20 at night) They called me and said they watched my flight status and saw I landed early and confirmed I will be at the pick up spot as the shuttle driver just left on his way to the airport!!O Hare shuttle pick up can be a bit far and a tad confusing for first timer (We learned this prior) Follow the red shuttle pick up signs & underground tunnel and hall to red elevator up to door 2Shuttle arrived shortly after we got to the pick up spot Driver was courteous and a safe driver, loaded our bags Bus was clean and professional lookingHotel is nice, nothing over the top fancy, room a bit small and tiny bathroom but was clean, had a great mattress and hot showerFront desk has a local pizza delivery referral that was very good Filtered water dispenser in lobby was a nice refreshmentWe slept too late for the breakfast (ends at 9am) I guess we needed the sleep The breakfast space and furniture looked very nice Our next visit we will try itVery nice area I felt safe leaving my car there I have used the Hampton in the past but will definitely call ESTIA againI was told at checkout Call direct They can give you a better rate 😉 Next time We will

Blane Schippers

Estia is simply fantastic It was really easy to book a room and shuttle service We did the park/sleep/fly option and it worked out perfectly

The staff was extremely nice and helpful The room was nice and clean Free breakfast with coffee Fast and convenient shuttle service The staff went above and beyond for us I left my backpack containing my laptop in the shuttle and they were kind enough to mail it to me so I didn’t have to drive all the way back I can’t say enough about Estia and the staff there Do not second guess this option This hotel is wonderful and I will be going back on my nice trip

I rarely write 3-star reviews but I thought this might be good for anyone with families to readHere are things that we didn’t like about this hotel:1 The living room is very noisy and bright

I have 2 teenagers, and we thought the pull out couch would make a good place for one of them to sleep to give them some space It did not work out well They have glass panels in the hotel room doors, which was pretty, but it let in all the hallway light You could also hear everything from the outside They were very busy during our stay and they lounge area was noisy into the middle of the night We could hear this despite being on the 5th floor2 The staff was mostly nice but not always helpful My son got sick while visiting He unfortunately did not make it to the bathroom in time We cleaned this up ourselves because it was out son and we didn’t want to make the cleaning service do it However we didn’t want to keep the towels with vomit in the room I put it in a plastic bag and took it to the front desk for laundry and the lady looked at me like I was crazy I also had to twice ask for beddingThings we did like about the hotel1 The complimentary drinks was a nice touch and appreciated Unfortunately it does get pretty packed during that time so you may not have a place to sit2 The location is perfect Close to other hotels, conventions and the train station is within a 5 minute walk

You get breakfast for each day you stay you get two drinks between 5:00 and 6:30 each day u stayHallways and elevators were way too hot Elevators need at least one fan or two felt like you were going to have a heat strokeRoom was decent I like the setup

Nice size tvs the shower could have been deeper water pressure could have been harderEven though we were by the airport didn’t really hear it unless you were standing outside so that was a plus didn’t get a chance to get in the pool but the area we were in was pretty good restaurants down the road Casino shopping $33 parking but it’s well worth it because you can get in and out without them charging you each time you leaveFirst day of breakfast eggs sausage French toast make your own omelette oatmeal regular toast muffins bagels and cerealSecond day eggs sausage pancakes make your own omelette regular toast muffins bagels cereal oatmealI do recommend this place and I will stay again🙂

I was looking for a place outside of Chicago and didn’t know my way around the suburbs! This Holiday Inn had good reviews, so I said yes!It was clean and quiet! The service was great and I felt safe the whole time! There’s complementary parking and breakfast! It’s located in a pleasant neighborhood, and next to a Police Station and a church!I also found out that Super H-Mart was just down the road! I would stay here again!

I am not sure if 3 stars were deserved Before moving from a different Holiday Inn Express & Suites near Midway International Airport, I lost my wallet and debit card Some way, the previous hotel shared my banking information

My friend agreed to pay until I could repay him When we went inside to check-in, I was not required to show my lost ID and had already been check-in though likely not legallyOtherwise, the hotel was nice Just be careful when exiting the parking lot to use the correct exit I did not drive but navigated I accidentally put us on the wrong roadway since I did not know the area

Eric Prudent

All things considered, it’s a pretty good hotel FYI if you’re going here, don’t count on their breakfast options I stayed a week and they never had any fruit options, and only had yogurt one day

Also almost every day the breakfast meat option was the crummy sausage patty Otherwise it’s a pretty nice hotel and there’s stuff to do in the area

This is a good place to rest your head if you need that in this part of town The hotel description is awfully optimistic The rooms are clean and the beds comfortable

That’s about it The hotel facade and the lobby offer a nice greeting Beyond that the halls and rooms are in real need of updating The decor and lighting are very old and drab I didn’t want to do anything in the room but sleep The reception area is all black and the employees wear all black This is way out of vogue Except for a very small area in the lobby, there is no place to sit and relax Two out of five is very accurate

Stephanie English

Room was very clean and comfortable Management was awesome and super accommodating I loved the decor of the hotel and our room

There’s plenty of places to eat within a short walking distanceGoogle says complimentary breakfast but there’s only coffee

Daniel Vaughn

My stay here for the past week has been excellent The rooms are very clean, beds and pillows rather comfortable, location near Lincoln Park is great, and the staff (both front desk and housekeeping) is highly accommodating and friendly Note that this is an old building – it’s not the Ritz – and with it comes some old-building issues (e

g finicky heater) However, any actual problems I had were quickly and courteously addressed They’ve also clearly made an effort to keep the furniture/beds/bathroom fixtures/etc clean and updated despite the building age For their reasonable in-town Chicago rates, I would happily stay at Willows again

Absolutely fantastic for the price point Good customer service, great room The only qualm was that the fan in the bathroom was a little loud, but that could have been specific to the room we stayed in

Definitely would stay again next time I’m in town, and would recommend to friends Fantastic location and great stay for a casual vacation

Ying Tang

The hotel is at a convenient location, lots of life around, close to bus stations and red line We felt safe to walk from the stations to the hotel at night The staff there are attentive, the only hotel indeed arranged me a quiet room per I requested

Breakfast is also fine with quality choices Room is clean, spacious and comfortable By the way, next to the parking lot, there is a construction going on, they do started pretty early, and a bit annoying

David Cline

I recently posted a negative yet realistic review here The shower plumbing was falling apart, the refrigerator didn’t work etc I repeatedly asked for room service and received none during my six day stay

Then online you apologized, but then said I wasn’t getting my deposit due to smoking in the roomThe only question I asked the lady at the front desk when I arrived is that if it was a non smoking room Due to I am allergic to smoke She said yesMaybe your feelings got hurt about my review and this is how you react I’ll just be happy knowing people have read this and chose elsewhereSo recapping, worst Best Western ever, worst customer service and you lie because you got a negative reviewIt’s not personal, it’s for other consumers

Room is much better than I thought it would be (although I don’t have the good view to look outside), but the bed is comfy and the bathroom has plenty space (it makes a big flush sound though so I think other room can here it) The transportation is very close to the hotel so it’s very convenient The road is quite calm and quiet, and there are many restaurants nearby to check out

I once spent the night in a hammock in a Central American jungle during a civil war & that was more pleasant than my stay at the Hilton Orrington in EvanstonRoom 1: We arrived at the Hilton Orrington in the evening and were given a room on the lower floor I asked if one was available on a higher floor and they said no

So we checked into our lower floor room There were blood stains on the bedspread, the hinge was ripped off the closet door, the room reeked of cigarette smoke, and the armchair was filthy and looked as though someone had vomited on it So the next morning we went down to the front desk, told them of the problems, and were given a room on an upper floorRoom 2: The carpet was covered in stains, the air conditioning didn’t work & there were wasps in the room We asked about having the air conditioning fixed and were told that many of the air conditioning units in the hotel didn’t work and that they would put in a work order with maintenance I asked for a fan, but they said they didn’t have any I would like to note that it was 98° outside during our stay and 78° in our room So I killed the wasps, tried to ignore the carpet stains & we suffered through the heat that night Went out for the day, got home at mid-afternoon The air conditioning had not been fixed Went down to the front desk and requested a new roomRoom 3: The very surly man at the front desk gave us a new room but we refused to move until we saw it It was 80° in that room & the air conditioning didn’t work Went back to the front desk and asked for a different roomRoom 4: Smaller than the other rooms, with stained carpet and a postage stamp size bathroom, but no flying/stinging insects & the air conditioning worked However, when we woke up the next morning the bathtub was filled with tiny spiders Fortunately, they were easily washed down the drain with the shower headOverall the staff at the front desk (with the exception of Brittany & Andy, who were lovely) were apathetic, disinterested, unhelpful &, in the case of the thin man with the beard at the front desk, overtly hostile I had assumed that the Hilton brand represented quality, but in regard to the Hilton Orrington, this is clearly not the case

Hamid Charkhkar

Be aware if you are booking a room with a king size bed, you may sleep on a double bed! Although my online reservation clearly stated Room with a king bed, i was told by staff that my room has a “smaller size king bed” (!!) and if i want a full king, i need to upgrade The bed only had 1 night stand and was super small I just didn’t like the fact that my wife and i were lied to and staff/hotel only cared about charging extra for sth i had already booked! Stay away from this hotel!
