Reviewed 9 December 2013

This is my second time staying here, and I brough a collegue with me, I like the free parking and good location for where I want to be! Its a lovely hotel and has everything you need. Rooms are generous sized and really its a pleasure.
The bathroom is very small for the size of the room and a bit dated, but its ok.

This DoubleTree is about 10 miles from O'Hare and about 20 miles from downtown Chicago. Was on a recent trip to the area, with business both in Chicago and Milwaukee (about 2 hours north), and this was a excellent choice, with a reasonable rate.

The building itself is older as evidenced by the very small bathrooms (the door just misses the toilet when closing) and the antiquated heating system (either a/c for the summer, or heat for the winter ... and open the window if either isn't right), but it's been renovated fairly recently, so other than "old bones" it's a nice hotel.

You can't beat the DoubleTree bed (didn't want to get up in the morning!), or the great welcome cookie when you check-in.

Another plus is the restaurant (Jameson's Charhouse), just off the lobby ... good for a buffet breakfast, or a leisurely dinner ... and, although they're not under the hotel management, you can sign your meal off to your room ... the food is above average and the service is top-notch (not what you'd typically expect from a hotel restaurant these days).

Alternatively, there's a large mall across the street, and down a block. which has a variety of middle and upscale chain restaurants, if you want some variety. (Note: this mall has outside walkways, so can be very cold for a large portion of the year in this part of the world).

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the main tower building (there's an annex in the back which is a bit longer wa...

We had 3 rooms. The staff was friendly. The rooms were clean. There were no issues with noise. Right across the street from the mall with lots of stores and restaurants. It would have been cheaper to stay at a hotel that included a free continental breakfast, but this was a nice and quiet experience.

Thank you to everyone from the front desk to the women who cleaned our room. Everyone was most accommodating and pleasant. Thanksgiving weekend is a very busy time time of year, but these people made everything easier for us. Many thanks for a most pleasant stay.

I have stayed at this hotel numerous times and have always had good service and a comfortable room. The fitness center is not very large, but has everything i need. I am an early riser so I have no problem finding an open treadmill and using the free weights. The hotel location works well for me since the company I work for has an office less than 2 miles away.

The hotel is located close to a shopping mall with all good brands, so it's a very good choice if you intend to bring stuff home (there's a best buy and a marshalls just around the corner and the shopping mall is on the other corner). The hotel is very clean and the people is very gently and receptive. I would definitely stay there again. There's a nice bath tube in the shower and many paid tv channels available.

I would give this 3 1/2 if I could.

The hotel is just fine. Not too expensive, good location, free internet and parking, lovely lobby, friendly staff. However, the restaurant is pricey, and the food is mediocre.

The bedroom was small, the bathroom tiny. Our bed was not especially comfortable. I've seen nicer rooms at other Double Trees - this one was more on par with a Hilton Garden Inn.

And that's my real comparison. We stayed in Skokie because the HGI and Hilton Orrington in Evanston were both booked. This Doubletree is somewhat less expensive than either, but much less convenient.

If your destination is Skokie, this hotel is a 4. But if you want to be in Evanston, the price differential just isn't worth the trip.
