I arrived at the property a little bit early, slightly under an hour early to be precise. I was offered the opportunity to check into my room, but only if I paid a $30 fee. To be clear, the room was empty and ready, but I was given a choice to wait in the lobby (on a rainy day) or pay $30. SO, I SAT IN THE LOBBY (with other people) AND LOOKED AT THE CHECK IN PERSON FOR 30 MINUTES WHILE THE EMPTY, FULLY PREPARED AND EMPTY ROOM WAS AVAILABLE UPSTAIRS.

So, in Covid, the policy of the hotel is to make people wait in groups in the lobby (or pay a fee) for fully available, empty rooms.

I understand if a room is not available or ready due to staff having to clean the room. I get it.

You would expect better service from staff when you say hilton but staff wasn’t that helpful plus service wasn’t great and keep in mind that you have to pay for your own parking and its $22 a night

Remember to use ʜᴏᴛᴇʟʙᴜʟʟʏ.ᴄᴏᴍ when booking your hotel. This site will compare countless hotel sites and normally will have prices much cheaper than others! Thank me later! This hotel is one of the most well known in the area. I’ve been coming here for a long time. If you stay for a few nights you for sure won’t be let down.

Great school. Students are very well rounded. Not just smart, but also interesting and of high character. Able to get a broad spectrum of perspectives because of the cuturally and demographically diverse class of students. Professors are knowledgeable and it was out of pocket dollars well spent for engineering graduate studies. President Obama spoke here as well!

An amazing stadium..We.went there for my nephews football game. The fans were nice, facilities clean and the concession food was good. I especially like the ease of getting into the stadium.. if you drive the parking is about a 10 minute walk from the stadium.. I suggest taking the Metra train if you live near a station because it let’s you right off near the stadium.

Teachers are okay. Some can’t teach for their life, some are over qualified and some are just awesome. Extracurricular are okay. Vast array of different clubs and sports that pretty much accepts anyone. Fencing is a good one if you are interested. Offers a lot of resources and different classes to take.

“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not a mark of weakness but of power and unspeakable love”. I came in to work to skilled facility here in Evanston and as I came in I asked a resident how he was doing, held his hand and he started to shed tears. I felt such connection in that moment and it is very rewarding. For me, that tears means joy and a relief. Here at The Mather, I feel so lucky and be a part of the Life Center where it truly values the lives of our residents. My managers are working so hard with so much passion and compassion. I knew from the very first day at The Mather that here is where my heart is. Thank you.

My family and I happened to be walking by this beautiful house yesterday. As I walked up to read the plaque by the front door it opened and an older gentleman asked if we would like to look inside. He said the last tour for the day was over but we could just walk around a bit. He then proceeded to give my family and I a personal tour of the entire first floor, I can not imagine that the official tour could have been any more informative.

Iwona my teller was very unpleasant. Branch is very clean and other tellers and bankers seemed upbeat but she was not. Did not greet me nor reply to me politely asking how she was doing. Proceeded to throw my ID and credit card towards me after our transaction when I initially politely handed them to her. Did not ask if there was anything else she can help me with after and did not reply when I said thank you have a nice day. Made me not want to visit this branch in the future for small day to day business let alone consider private banking.

This restaurant discriminates. I’m saddened by the fact that they are so evil. For the restaurant you are outright horrible in being apart of this non sense. For the employees there are other restaurants hiring but the fact you are fine segregating people is disgusting! You all are an awful disappointment to the country and I hope people will be smart enough not to support your agenda is ruining this amazing country! I will never recommend anyone here! Food is awful, service is terrible and they have completely changed.

This place will do everything to waste your time and not provide service. We called and specifically asked if walk-ins are allowed for passports and told they were. We walked in; the person at the counter says no walks ins; appointments only. The person in front of us left their appointment early and the woman at the counter could have helped us and refused. I’ve had so many awful experiences here with mail and packages as well.

All I want was a training session but all they want was to know my eating and training habits and sell me courses.

During these times with the pandemic, I totally understand and respect the need for distance and safety. But, customer service and sensible kindness shouldn’t be sacrificed as a result. Or at least not receive dirty looks, or getting scolded for not staying at the taped line. It took one second to just look at the price of the register. Sorry~~

Other than that, good prices for a good selection. Sometimes cheaper and better than wholefoods, down the street.

I went for an interview here last Tuesday for a Receptionist job. The HR interviewer was really nice to me and we chatted and at the end of it, she said to me I really want to offer you a job as an Administrator Assistant position. So I said thank you so much and smiled. To me, when someone says that, that means that you are getting a job. To be honest, do not tell someone that if you are going to decline them. I do not want to sound rude, because that is not who I am. I just want to work for a great company like this one. I thought I was going to get the job, because I am really good at Excel. I work with Excel everyday and that should be enough. I really wanted to get the Administrative Assistant position, because I give 110 percent, I am very prompt and I am really fast learner. I work so hard on all of my work. Also, work for me, comes first. It would mean the world to me, to get a job here. Everyone working here, are so nice and friendly. This is my dream job to work at a place like this place. This job is everything what I am looking for. I will be the happiest girl to work for such a great company like this place.
