    Holiday Inn Evanston
    Very basic hotel, nothing special. Didn't like whatever detergent they use on the sheets, it was pretty harsh. Also the TV has hdmi ports, but they are disabled, essentially neutering any use for it besides basic cable.

    Poor 2.0
    Sad!!!!!!
    The parking structure is terrible if you have a big or tall vehicle. The rooms need to be remodeled. They said they put enough toiletries in our room but it was only enough for the day, had to visit the front desk everyday for items. Booked two rooms together and they put us on different floors. Terrible experience for it to be in a nice community.

    Needs work.
    The first room we were in smelled like chlorine, could hear the elevator ding from every floor and out TV didn't work! We had to change room after they spent an hour to fix it. The room was fine except for the light bulb flashing and blinding because it was going out!! By later that evening one of the two elevator broke down!

    Disappointed
    I requested a specific room. Spoke to Beth the morning of arrival to confirm the room. Upon check in I was advised that my room would be ready in an hour and a half-5:30 Took another room down the hall that was filthy dirty. Long Stan of hair in sink. Paper and old hair on the heater. Very upsetting. I informed the front desk and I was able to change rooms. Finally ended up in room I requested -310 So it took all day to finally get comfortable I was also told the pool was getting serviced to open during the holiday. However, guess what? The pool is not under going any maintenance at the moment.

    Dissatisfied
    I have always stayed at this hotel when I am in Chicago and been satisfied but not this time. Neighbors across the hall so loud the police had to be called. Neighbors next door banking on drums at 6:00am. No assistance from the front desk and no return call from the manager. I will be staying at a different hotel in the future.
