We attended an admitted-student day event recently. The event registration started at 8:15 am, so after a satisfactory continental breakfast, we were just a quick elevator ride to the main event. Not having to make the drive from the suburbs in the wee morning hours, priceless! It was so convenient staying on campus, plus the added bonus of having a... More

My daughter and I stayed here on a college visit, and it was the perfect choice. Check in was smooth and professional -- there is no hassle getting here as you pull up right in front of the building, and parking is close by. Our room was neat, clean and had a beautiful view overlooking the quad. If you are... More

I stayed in this hotel for a visit to the University of Illinois campus and it was extremely convenient. I was concerned that parking might be an issue as is typical on campus, but I was able to park right outside the entrance to the union. My room was very clean, but the rooms are in need of renovation--the bathrooms... More

Hi, Thanks for the kind words. If your child chooses Illinois we'll hopefully see you for the next four years! I couldn't agree witrh you more regarding the bathrooms- they top our "to do" list. Enjoy the college selection process! More

This hotel is located right on the campus so if one has to visit the school-UIUC- it would be perfect. I don't see why anyone would stay here other than that reason. The room was clean and quiet. Small room size, though. Within the hotel, there are small shops and eateries that you can grab quick snacks if you do... More

The Illini Union hotel puts you right @ the heart of the campus ... Within walking distance of great restaurants and surrounded by the sights and sounds of university students in action on the Quad. The rooms are a bit tired, it took awhile for hot water to arrive in the shower head, and the continential breakfast was average. However,... More

Stayed here on a work trip, paid by the university. First impression was pretty good - slow check in but friendly, happily gave us a parking pass ahead of when our room was ready, room clean and completely serviceable. They also gave us a choice of rooms when we checked in and we chose a quad view room. HOWEVER... When... More

Very old building, but they have done a nice job keeping rooms updated. Location says it all, but rooms are very nice and reasonably priced (at least for the time of year we went). Another thing to consider is it comes with free parking at the Union - that could be worth it alone. The continental breakfast is low end... More

Great location. We had a suite, one room with two double beds and one room with a pull out couch. We were a family of five so this was more than enough space and had two bathrooms. Right in the middle of campus. Walk to restaurants. Be careful that you park in the right place or you will end up... More
