From the moment I called to inquire about the hotel (thank you Gabe!), to booking the rooms a few hours later (thanks again Gabe!), to arriving, staying and checking out.... everything was top notch. Modern, updated, very clean rooms and extra clean bathrooms. It was an excellent stay and I look forward to booking again (through Gabe I hope!). Complimentary... More

I really didn't expect to find a first class hotel in this area but was so pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Free breakfast, modern and very clean rooms, service and staff excellence. The lobby area is absolutely beautiful. This is a 4 star hotel in the heart of corn country. It sits right on the University campus. It has a... More

Have stayed here twice on business and found it to be well-appointed, quiet, comfortable, and a great value. Walk to campus, breakfast included, on-site restaurant (Houlihan's, but it could be worse). Much better than it has to be, given paucity of options and captive audience! Staff seems to be mostly students, but what they lack in polish, they more than... More

Perhaps the nicest place in the whole city ! Clean and nice staff - The rate could / should have been cheaper as we are in the middle of no where ! Just didn't like the small in the elevators - If they had a small shop for things would be helpful - Clean place

This hotel is literally minutes from the University of Illinois campus and gives a substantial discount to those visiting the University. It is a very nice hotel with a large Houlihan's restaurant located on the premises and there is free breakfast from their lobby cafe...not extensive but what you need to get you going. The rooms are large and comfortable.... More

Visited with my daughter on a visit to to the university and was very impressed with the concept and aesthetics. Very sleek and modern looking, with nice artwork in the lobby and interesting decorations (books on an invisible shelf). Also nice that they provide complimentary breakfast in the cafe since many higher-end hotels like this do not. Would definitely stay... More

My 17 year-old son and I stayed here on a recent visit to U of I. The hotel was modern and very clean. As far as dining options, there is a Starbucks Cafe, which is where you receive your complimentary breakfast, and a Houlihan's full-service restaurant. The cafe offers Starbucks beverages, bagels, scones or other pastries, hot and cold cereals,... More

We stayed at this hotel for a wedding. Convention room was nice / hotel room was kinda small. Rooms were very clean and contemporary. Kids were very dissappointed that there wasnt a swimming pool or hot tub at facility. Rooms were kinda pricey for all the hotel has to offer. This is a very nice hotel for the business person...

The I Hotel is part of the Univ. of Illinois Research and Conference Center. As such, aside from the general public, they obviously have as guests high level academics, researchers, and scientists from around the country (and possibly around the world). As such, it's a classy (though not expensive) place. In what other hotel, for example, would they give away,... More

Spotlessly clean room and public areas welcomed us. Efficient and friendly staff able to anticipate our needs and resolve any questions quickly. Very attractive modern décor and artworks throughout as well as a well equipped exercise room. Tasty breakfast offerings and a wide selection of local and national newspapers for those of us who enjoy that type of thing.
