Very Nice Hotel - Great Location to NW U A review of Hilton Orrington
Stayed at the Orrington. Two rooms. One with a King and one with Two Queens. Great rooms, great beds! with pillow top mattresses and lots of pillows. Super nice linens! Both rooms had walk in closets, nice big desk area for your laptop and doing work or reading. Elegant, simple, clean rooms with great atmosphere. Help was always very polite and helpful. Lots of doormen to help with directions and bags. Restaraunt was great, but a little pricey. Luckily a full breakfast was included in the rate of 109.00 (special) and was magnificent! I would suggest this hotel to anyone from the hardened business traveler to the family tourist. It's just down the block from Northwestern University so not downtown but we drove to all the museums and it took about 20 minutes. Great little shops all around hotel. Plenty of restaraunts to choose from and funky shops too. I suggest going in the summer so it's not so cold. No bathroom fan and walls did seem to be a little thin but I turned on the heater unit to low fan for some white noise and didn't hear a thing.
Didn't get a chance to make it to the jazz club but heard it was great.
