Great location, first class service including reaching out prior to our stay to inquire about bottled water, newspaper preference, etc. Well appointed, bright and comfortable rooms. Fitness center was small but clean and had everything we needed. I would highly recommend and would definitely stay again.

We stayed at the I Hotel this past weekend while dropping our son at college. The hotel is very modern/clean and the staff is very nice and professional. We were having a hard time finding some last minute items for our son's room, as everything was sold out and Emily A. at the front desk rescued us. While we were... More

We have stayed here twice actually. Each time we have really enjoyed our stay! The rooms are modern yet very comfortable beds, refrigerator, irons & ironing board, coffee makers with Starbucks coffee, and free wifi. All within walking distance to the Pavillion & Stadium. Perfect for game days or concerts. For an additional fee you can get a Ruku with... More

We did not stay in this hotel, but rather held our son's wedding rehearsal dinner here. Living three states away we thought that planning the event might be a bit difficult, but the event staff made the whole process relativly easy. The facility was set up and decorated beautifully and the food, including appetizers, main course, deserts and wines were... More

Right on the Univ. of Illinois campus, beautiful hotel, great comfortable rooms and a very nice complimentary breakfast in the restaurant. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. It was a real bargain as well on a night nothing much was going on, on campus.

We loved this hotel and only wished we could stay longer. Quiet and clean and the staff was over the top in being helpful. We ordered room service from the Houlihan's on site and it was delicious and very affordable. The property looked new and the lobby is truly beautiful; modern without being cold. It is located on the U... More

We stayed one night - Champaign was just a planned stopping point for us on a car trip. This is a beautiful new property with a contemporary but not cutting edge/hipster (as in the W chain) feel. Complimentary breakfast with very decent coffee and convenient free parking. There was nothing not to like, and it was fun being on the... More
