Holiday Inn Chicago North-Evanston
Nicely decorated room, friendly staff. Only two issues which won't apply to most folks: (1) they only have one cart for luggage which was in use when we were checking out (2) there is a very steep grade to drive up into their parking garage. We heard the bottom of of car, without any luggage in it, scrap against it.

Great location if visiting Northwestern
The location was great for my daughter to visit Northwestern. The only problems were no elevator from the parking garage and having to carry our luggage up and down the stairs and an clock alarm went off around 3:00 AM for @ 20 minutes (at least!)

Very Good8.0
The hotel is clean, the staff friendly and professional. Only downside: food available. Perhaps the hoel has made the calculation that because of easy access to near-by restaurants, they don't need to offer an attractive menu.
