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

The I Hotel was the venue for a recent business conference I attended. From my limited tour of Champaign-Urbana, I'm confident the facility is one of the best lodging choices in the area. The hotel is conveniently located near the University of Illinois' basketball arena and football stadium as well as the offices of several businesses (e.g. Yahoo) that apparently... More

I recently stayed at the hotel on a trip to the research center on the university campus. The hotel is extremely convenient as it is across the street and therefore within walking distance. The hotel also offers a free shuttle service to the local airport that I highly suggest. The gentleman that picked me up waited over an hour after... More

Staff delivers excellent customer service. Room is clean and quiet. The reason for four stars is the bed is a tad soft for my liking. The amenities are very good quality. I highly recommend this hotel when you visit Champaign.

We just experienced the IHotel for the first time. It was truly amazing! My daughter booked the IHotel for her wedding. It was a Friday night wedding. We reserved the Quad Room, Chancellor Ballroom and Alma Mater room. Ceremony in one, cocktail hour in another with use of the patio, and reception in another. We had to do absolutely nothing...

We have stayed at the I Hotel in Champaign at least ten times from 2012 through 2016. The decor throughout is elegant, understated contemporary, and as a commercial property owner I recognize and appreciate the high-quality fixtures used throughout. The setting at the South-West edge of campus is peaceful, in sight of the State Farm Center and Memorial Stadium, yet... More
