Room @ the Orrington
Yes, I stayed in the Orrington before it had its $32 million face-lift. And I also lived across the street from the hotel for 2 years and attended many, many corporate recruiting events there while attending Kellogg (we also considered The Huddle bar to be our second home).
While the hotel has now acheived historic landmark status, the hotel has been renovated (and renamed) so that I hardly recognize it.
Unique Qualities: On the third floor is a complimentary fitness center, complete with towels, a water cooler, and fresh fruit. The hotel also provides a free shuttle to a nearby athletic club, where guests can buy a daily or weekly pass to utilize a wide range of fitness resources, including aerobics classes, a climbing wall, a swimming pool, and strength-training equipment.
A restaurant featuring chef Jackie Pluton is supposed to open in Spring 2005.
Address: 1710 Orrington Ave, Evanston, IL 60201
Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: Downtown Evanston (between Church and Clark Streets)
If taking the El or Metra, use the Davis Street stop.
The hotel also has valet parking.
Phone: (847) 866-8700
