First rate hotel in a prime spot for football weekends. Hotel is updated and staff is wonderful. This feels like a high end hotel. Very fun sports bar in the hotel. This would be a nice place for business travelers also because if the high level of service. If you like to walk you are about 20 minutes to campus.

The staff is great!!! They are very helpful. The rooms are modern and clean. The beds are comfortable. This is not the type of hotel that you would normally except to find in central Illinois. It is great! I wish they had refrigerators in the rooms.

Well, 1st off I must say that the rooms are over-priced. I paid $199/night. But that's cool though, the hotel is located right near campus and I was willing to pay that price for convenience, so i'm not tripping to much. I LOVED the furniture & decor in the hotel lobby. The rooms were very very nice. The beds were...

Check in was quick and efficient. Room is clean and modern. My only complaint is the free breakfast. The breakfast coupon and signs in the hotel announce in large letters "Eggstra, Eggstra". I think eggs are just what I am in the mood for. The breakfast "buffet" is cold cereal, fruit, and bread. If you want anything cooked, you order...

We've stayed in many hotels in Champaign /Urbana over the last two years that my daughter and her husband have lived there. This was a splurge. The room and the staff did not disappoint. However, the breakfast was no more than what I could have at home. The worst was no hot coffee ready as soon as we entered the...

This hotel is a pleasant surprise in Champaign. My sister was getting married and booked this hotel to have her reception. In addition she was able to get a block of hotel rooms during a home game football weekend. I expected the hotel to be crazy and provide poor service. Not so. Our check in was smooth and barely a...

The I Hotel was recommended to us by family and friends who live in Champaign - endorsements by locals is usually a good barometer anyway, and this hit the mark. Location is in the U of I campus grounds. Well-maintained premises, plenty of parking, friendly and efficient staff, adequate fitness area, nice little breakfast cafe, on-site Houlihan's had a great...

I had a lot of things to bring in to the conference center and staff met me at the door to help out. The Conference center is very nice and is equipped with the latest technology.

Our HS class reserved a block of rooms for our recent reunion. Our room was extremely comfortable and quiet. The bed was one I could have in my home.

Over the last 7 years of visiting the U of I, with children in school, we have stayed at a number of hotels in the area. Overall, for the price, this is the best one so far. Very clean and quiet, pleasant staff, and adequate complimentary breakfast. No pool, but that could be a plus as it seems to more...
