Our Hotel

Stay close to the City of Chicago & Downtown Chicago

Our Hotel is Conveniently Located near Amazing Chicago Attractions, including Downtown Chicago & Sports Arenas

Not many people know why it’s called The Windy City, but travelers from our Hyatt House Chicago/Evanston always seem to drift downtown like they’re carried on the breeze. And it’s no small surprise, considering the city’s incredible attractions for visiting families, friend groups, wedding parties, sports fans and more. Take Wrigley Field baseball as an example of one fun sports activity you can enjoy in the sun. Treat your children to educational, interactive entertainment at the Lincoln Park Zoo. Or pick up your irons, call coworkers and impress your superiors with a round on the green at the Forest Preserve Golf Course. There’s a litany of activities to enjoy beyond concerts, exhibitions and symphonies, if those aren’t your thing. Our hotel makes it possible to reach anything that piques your interest, while Chicago ensures that the selection is endless.

A Home-like Hotel with All the Bells and Whistles

Home is where the heart is, but it’s also where our hotel is. That’s because we embrace Evanston’s emphatic approach to community, where family and friends unite under one roof—even if they didn’t enter our doors that way. Every guestroom is adorned with suite style standards, from spacious living room dimensions to fully equipped kitchens. Little reminders of home pop up throughout our hotel, from the in-room coffee/tea maker, hair dryer and ironing board to the features you that don’t usually come complimentary, like Wi-Fi and daily breakfasts. Ultimately, we’re considered the crème de la crème of Illinois hospitality because our special amenities and services are so close to Chicago. Take advantage of a cutting-edge fitness center, an outdoor grilling patio and 24-hour dining options before you ride the Purple Line into Union Station. We look forward to showing you why the locals call us Heavenston.

Evanston is a city run by trains. From the Purple Line to the Metra, guests can forget about parking problems downtown when they choose to hold hand rails instead of steering wheels. Since our community is so connected, commuters also don’t need to worry about traveling far to reach the next stop. Many are within walking distance of Hyatt House Chicago/Evanston, like the CTA Foster station near Northwestern University. And for travelers wanting something other than tracks, Evanston offers taxi services, car rentals, buses, bikes and more.

CTA Purple Line

From the Chicago Transit Authority’s purple line, seven distinct spots in Evanston are accessible from our hotel. Two of these stations are a five minute walk from Hyatt House Chicago/Evanston: the Foster stop is a short walk from the center of Northwestern University, while the Davis station places travelers at the heart of shopping and dining in downtown Evanston.

Union Station and Sears Tower

Expand your horizons when you hop off the train at Davis. This station is a transfer spot for Metra connections, one of the very best branch lines for reaching downtown Chicago that Evanston can offer. With a ride to Quincy, travelers arrive at the iconic Union Station terminal and the city is yours for the taking. One step into the sunshine and you’ll be gazing up at Sears Tower, a massive skyscraper that held the title of world’s tallest building for almost 25 years.

Pet Policy

Even when your trip is strictly business, it’s never fun to leave your four-legged friend back home. In many cases, it costs extra money you could otherwise be spending here in Illinois. So choose a hotel that makes the trip easier on you and your wallet. Hyatt House Chicago/Evanston is prepared for your furry companion with suite accommodations that include separate living spaces in a smoke-free environment. Keep your pup’s favorite treats from spoiling in your fully-equipped kitchen with a compact refrigerator. And above all, enjoy the sense of calm our hotel can provide your best friend. We create a familiar atmosphere through our unique experience: a fresh brew from your coffee/tea maker will be just like waking up at home.

An Unbeatable Location to Enjoy with your Dogs

The best part is that when you explore our neighborhood, your pooch can join you. With a four minute walk down the street, guests can sit on the patio with their pup and enjoy American fare at Quince at the Homestead. If you walk an extra block, you’ll reach the contemporary and pet-friendly Chef’s Station. It won’t take more than another block to reach the beach, and most of them are dog-friendly. So for a spectacular day in the sun with a couple of your small dogs, look no further than our Hyatt House Chicago/Evanston. We are canine central, and only a couple miles away from great dog parks.
