Right up against the funky college vibe of a restored small town in Illinois, walking distance to ISU campus, in the heart of downtown Normal, complete with tasty restaurants and an awesome bookstore where you can get lost for hours 3 blocks away , an indy movie theatre, , not to mention a great family type bike trail AND the Amtrak station (bring your earplugs, except if you're like me and actually LIKE the train whistles, crossing dings and horns). Rooms easily accommodated a family of a mom and 2 adult daughters.in-hotel restaurant food beyond expectations and near Chicago quality. Parking easy and on-site. I couldn't believe valet parking for $5!
For people leaving at 4 am to catch a Chicago flight, there is a 24 hour diner restaurant 2 blocks away we didn't try.
Another plus- coin op washer and dryer!
Only 1 problem- at 2 am daughter had a stomach ache, front desk did not have any access to over the counter medicines and I didn't want to drive alone at night to an unfamiliar 24 hour pharmacy.
