Spent two-days in meetings and have to say the food was the best meeting food I've ever had. They had great options like smoothies for breakfast, make your own snack mix for breaks, etc. Was very impressed. This hotel stands out in decor and atmosphere for sure!!

I stayed there several times including several months in 2010. The staff is very good and being a Gold member I had access to the concierge lounge. It is on the top floor and has a nice view of the city. The staff is very good and makes sure you are comfortable. One nice thing is that the hotel is... More

This place was very nice. We went for a wedding off the hotel property. Staff was awesome! Clean. Comfortable. Great location. Easy parking. Downtown Normal is beautiful with plenty of things to do. Great trip!

The hotel was very nice, the room was very nice. The employee that handled our reservation when we arrived left something to be desired. When I made the reservation on the phone, they kindly upgraded us to the concierge level, and also told us that there was a complimentary breakfast which was great. (The service at the restaurant was pretty... More

This hotel is so convenient to Illinois State University. It is our hotel-of-choice when we visit our daughter. The rooms are very comfortable. Nicely appointed, clean, spacious. The staff is fantastic. Everyone makes a point of making eye contact, smiling and greeting guests. Really. Whoever is in charge of training staff: you are doing a great job. But where this... More

Well, the sheets on my bed smelled like that. As did the rest of the bedding: pillows, bedcover, etc. My request for fresh linens was honored with, guess what? Slightly less bad smelling linens. I can't remember anything else about the hotel when the sheets smell like oily, unwashed hair. :(.

Room - great! Well laid, comfy bed, big bathroom but the products are a little on the musky scented side, so not ideal for some ladies. The closet is big with lots of hangers. The food counter is not ideal - it has a microwave with a coffee/tea box and maker, but no shelf room, so unless you are using... More

I've stayed here several times and attended multiple conferences as well. The hotel staff is always incredibly nice and accommodating - I've never experienced the slightest problem while staying here. The event spaces are enormous and very well maintained, making even boring conferences a pleasant experience.

Really nice property, good concierge (except a little smelly), great gym and good restaurant. Nice staff. Near some really good restaurant. However, the 2am and 5am trains come in and are loud....both woke me up and several other guest complained about it.

Thank you for recognizing our staff and our restaurant. I'm sorry the train noise was bothersome. The town is working hard to make our town a noise free zone and with the many upgrades to the local railroad we are hopefull by this time next year we will have that designation.
