This is a wonderful hotel. Beautiful décor and colors, elegant but comfortable and soothing. Good food, good wine, great pool with hot tub and comfortable fitness center with everything you'd want. The room was seemingly over-sized, seemed bigger than other hotel's standard rooms, and very comfortable--quality construction and décor. Good-sized bath with great shower head!! Bed was very comfortable, and...

The rooms are spacious, and clean. A microwave and refrigerator available as well as coffee machine. Staff very friendly. Excellent check in. Location is good for many restaurants, bars,shopping. Easy walking. Only one issue that made us rather crazy and that was the parking ramp. Cost was 8 dollars a day and code given to let you in and out...

Jammerspot, we are glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciate your feedback. The town of Normal is responsible for the parking garage and fortunately allows us to use it, as well as have a skywalk going from the hotel to the parking garage. Luckily, we are located in Uptown near many great restaurants, pubs, and local shops. Thank you for...

We stayed here back at Christmas and had an excellent experience. Very clean, breakfast was good and the staff was helpful. It was convenient for the parking garage to be linked to a skybridge to the hotel, too. Within walking distance of the charming square of Normal, where there are ton of cute shops and restaurants. Will definitely stay here...

Stayed overnight for a conference. They had rooms available at 9:45am, so was able to check-in. It was nice to get settled before the conference started. The conference rooms were freezing, so dress warm or bring a warm jacket or sweater to put on. They had a buffet available for lunch. Salad, mozzarella and tomato with balsamic glaze along with...

I've been a Silver Elite member for some time and I stick with this brand because I can generally rely on the beds being confortable. Since I travel a lot for business, I need to be able to depend on that. I've experience the Marriott brand throughout the United States and in other parts of the world (Dubai, Scotland, and...

I love this unassuming, small, friendly, basic hotel and have stayed twice - both great experiences. The staff is all very accommodating and happy to see me when I arrive.

Stayed here with conference. Rating could have been higher, but disappointed that when a co-worker called to confirm late check-in, we assumed all was fine but arrived to find only had two rooms instead of three. Hotel promptly accommodated me at a nearby hotel which was fine. Food was good. Hotel was very clean and nice for a smaller town.

Well, I'll edit it if warranted, but out of the box this is some of the worst service I've ever received. We arrived very late, so I really have fairly low expectations. One thing I do expect is an available luggage cart. Not someone to push it or a bellhop. Just a cart that I can push my stuff to...

This is a well appointed, full service hotel located in downtown Normal IL. It sits directly adjacent to ISU campus downtown. Walk out the front door and you are in a walkable downtown or 1 block to the campus quadrangle. Being in a college town and next to the campus adds a vibrancy that equally sized towns lack. The front...
