Up until now, I have been a big fan of the I hotel. I am a frequent business traveler and have looked forward to opportunities to stay there. No longer. I called the hotel to make the reservation directly. This time the process was inefficient & cumbersome, which I found unusual. When I had to cancel the reservation (within the...

We just left the I Hotel after staying 3 nights. The rooms were great and clean. Restaurant was great considering we ate every meal there out of convenience. We were staying to run the Illinois Marathon and depart on Sunday. All flights out of Champagne were cancelled. The staff in the restaurant and the president of the hotel(Sam Santhanam) personally...

Slept very well here, rooms are well maintained. Breakfast included fresh fruit, yogurt, oatmeal, bagels. the hotel is right on campus, it is an hour walk to the downtown (recommend walking up first st rather than neil, as neil has a ton of traffic noise), there are restaurants on green st at a 20 min walk and a Houlihans is...

Stayed here for Mom's Weekend 2016. I believe all the local hotels charge a premium/minimum stay for these "event" weekends, I Hotel is no exception. However, compared to other places we've stayed, I Hotel was worth every cent. Flawless service from start to finish (Gabe at the front desk, you are an asset to your employer), quiet and well appointed...

This hotel is very modern, convenient to campus, and has very clean and comfortable rooms. The staff is helpful, courteous, and professional. I usually stay at this hotel during my visits to the Champaign/Urbana area. My only disappointment (and I've had colleagues who share this opinion) is the meager breakfast offerings.

The quality, service and attention to details are similar to Ritz,Taj,Four Seasons and Mandarin. I would highly recommend. Chose the venue for my daughter's wedding. Wedding reception was held at the spacious conference center with a nice patio and orange umbrellas. All our guests appreciated the complimentary comfortable airport shuttle service and the complimentary shuttle service to University of Illinois...

Friendly staff. Had a late check in and was extremely tired. They were so nice and quick to get us our key and offered bottled water which was very appreciated. The room is so clean and modern and very comfortable. Have stayed here a few times now and has never disappointed us. Great location. Love this place!

We recently stay at the I Hotel. The day before we were scheduled to arrive, Robert, the concierge, called us to see if we needed anything special in our room. He suggested bottles of water (Voss) and asked us if we wanted the Chicago Tribune. Of course we agreed to the water and paper. Later I called back and told...

Best place to stay when you are in town as far as I am concerned - the hotel itself is modern, bright, wonderful rooms and the staff are all extremely helpful.
