From the moment that we arrived and the door man greeted us, it was a great experience. The neighborhood is amazing, the rooms are very modern and extremely comfortable. I didn't want to leave the bed. Thanks for the memories.

Perfect location if you need access to Northwestern and Evanston. Evanston’s, restaurants, shops and lake are right outside your door. Every service person was attentive and friendly. The valet, the wait staff in the restaurant and bar and the front desk were all anxious to help. The room is beautiful and well appointed, since it is an older building that was nicely converted to a hotel, the bathroom is REALLY small. The included breakfast was in the hotel’s restaurant. We ordered a delicious breakfast off the menu and paid nothing. A great deal! I can’t imagine there is a better place to stay in Evanston. Tip: eat dinner at the Farmhouse restaurant which is connected to the hotel.

Room Tip: Request a higher room that faces East (Lake Michigan)

If you'd like to have the comforts of home, with a little VIP added to it, I suggest The Hilton Orrington/ Evanston, IL. Professional, Quiet, Clean, Refreshing,Classy, Elegant, and reasonably priced. Food is wonderful, the staff is courteous and accommodating! I highly recommend The Hilton Hotels wherever you travel!

We have stayed at the Hilton Orrington on several prior occasions while visiting relatives in the area and the hotel is consistently very good. Its in the middle of downtown Evanston, close to plenty of shopping/dining and about a block from the start of Northwestern University. Also, its about 2 block to "L" metro. The staff are quite helpful/friendly. We usually drive and there is no onsite self parking so we end up using the somewhat pricey valet service. The hotel does accept, for a fee, small pets. The rooms are certainly quite clean and the carpet looks to have been replaced recently. However, as other reviewers have noted, the bathrooms are certainly small with sink (and only available shelf) right next to the toilet so its easy to inadvertently knock items into the toilet. The onsite gym, which we used twice on this trip, is clean and fairly complete with nice cardio and weight equipment. We only had breakfast in the hotel restaurant and the continental breakfast was tasty. One pet peeve: I continue to find it irritating when hotels, such as this one, charge for wifi (~$5 -$10) in the room. Overall we find it to be a very good hotel in a great location for our needs (proximity to our relatives and we can stay there with our small dog).

I spent three nights at the Hilton Orrington to attend a wedding. The hotel is an older building that has been renovated very nicely. The room was clean and well furnished. The only problem with the room was the tiny bathroom. The very small sink was directly beside the the toilet which was directly beside the bathtub. In addition to that a corner behind the sink protruded out, thus giving less room at the sink and causing the mirror in the bathroom to be placed on a wall on the side of the sink. This made shaving in the morning very inconvenient. I had to stand at an angle with my leg against the toilet bowl in order to see in the mirror for shaving. The room number was 619.
The public facilities in the hotel were very good. It had a very convenient location for restaurants and some shopping. It was withing walking distance to Northwestern University. If it was not for the very cramped bathroom, I would have rated the hotel five stars.

Room Tip: free wifi available in bar area. Breakfast in hotel was excellent and not expensive.
