I was there on a business trip and the service was up to Hilton's standards. It is very well located in Evanston, IL. The rooms are very modern, spacious, and clean. I cannot remember if breakfast was included.

The place is very nice. It is in downtown Evanston, so very close to a lot of food and it's easy enough to get to the city. We were visiting Northwestern University when we stayed there. It is very close to the campus. It is modern and nice. The rooms were a little small for my liking. Our family thinks...

One of the great college "towns" in America. And the Orrington is the place to stay while visiting. Centrally located to both the town and Northwestern University. Surrounded by fun restaurants and shopping. The "eBistro" was great for breakfast and lunch. In particular, the Orrington personnel are top-notch. A "pet peeve" of mine is the impersonal nature of most hotel...

This was our second stay, the first one several years ago--mostly because of the location. It was an old hotel that underwent as extensive renovation. We had a very good experience both times. Very clean. We did miss not having a refrigerator or microwave.

We stayed at the Orrington in November 2015. It is close to Northwestern University (closer than the Hilton Garden Inn) and walking distance to restaurants, shops, and the L. Our room was teeny but well designed and quiet. It was really too small for two people--there was no way to watch TV unless you were in bed. Also nowhere to...

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel. The Hilton Orrington is a historic hotel, and some of our space reflects the designs of the time it was built. Rest assured we are continually looking at ways to improve every experience here at the hotel.

Evanston is one of those beautiful little communities with a great walk around downtown. There are more restaurants than you need, interesting little shops and Northwestern is on one corner. Hilton Orrington is right smack dab in the middle of it all. Much of it has been redone and the rooms are well appointed. A few can be on the...

I have stayed here on several trips to the Chicago area. I love how close it is to good restaurants and Northwestern University. The rooms were very nice and comfortable. The check in process was very easy and quick. I will stay here on future trips to the area.

My wife and I stayed at the Hilton Orrington in September of 2015, a repeat of several such stays over the past two years, with two sons at Northwestern University (one at Kellogg and one an undergrad). Visiting children at NU, you really want to stay in Evanston so that you are walking distance to the campus. You could stay...

I've stayed here twice and both experiences were excellent. Spacious, clean rooms and very supportive staff. I arrived hours before the normal check-in time, but I was given a great room immediately. The location is ideal. An easy walk to Northwestern and convenient to a host of great local restaurants and pubs. There's no reason to stay anywhere else in...

I've been there several times over the year and it is one of my all-time favorites. Rooms are usually spacey and the staff is friendly. I is located in front of McMannus, so also good for visiting parents.
