We stayed there two nights in connection with an event on campus. The hotel is on the south-west corner of campus about 4 miles from the airport. The hotel shuttle met our flight at the airport and took us back there for the return trip. It also provided transportation to the other side of campus for our meeting and to... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times in the 2 years. The hotel is modern and well located near the university. The rooms are spacious, modern and very clean. The front desk staff is also very helpful. The room has luxury bath products and a plush bathrobe giving my stay a luxurious feel. The breakfast vouchers are great and... More

I left my headset in my hotel room. The hotel called me to notify me and offered to return it to me. That's excellent service. Plus, staff members who are students wear a badge identifying their major. That makes an educator happy.

This hotel was great--I was put up by the university so can't say how it rates with cost but the rooms were really nice and modern with excellent toiletries and free shuttle to the airport. Staff were friendly and there's free Starbucks coffee in the morning for customers.

We just held a high school class reunion here, and the hotel added to the excellence of the entire weekend! The facilities are modern and comfortable at the same time. The guest rooms are airy and large, the restaurant/bar is casual, but full-service, and the conference center rooms are spacious. The dinner served was very good, but only tepid. The... More

Terrific location adjacent to the Assembly Hall (basketball) and Memorial Stadium (Football). Ultra modern, very clean, excellent safe area of town. Book early as it fills up during sporting events and during University conferences. Conference center is modern. Many couples hold their wedding receptions here.

This hotel is hip; fun; comfortable; and very service oriented. From the speedy and enthusiastic check-in and a room with all the amenities one could want, this is the place to stay in C-U. The rooms are a good blend of comfort and technology with some unexpected decor. The ICafe is the place for breakfast but the hotel restaurant Holihans... More

What a wonderful hotel. Very European feel to the rooms and great amenities. You can walk across the street to the football stadium and there is lots to do close by. The hotel shuttle will also take you into town to different spots and you can arrange a ride back with them as well.

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
