Each encounter at this privately owned and operated property has been great. We have stayed at this property on two occasions over the last few months and our both experiences (week night and weekend) were everything you could ask for with respect to service and comfort. While the property is a bit aged, the beds are comfortable, rooms are spacious,... More

The hotel staff was very professional and friendly. The rooms were very clean and spacious, I have stayed here in the past and the quality had been kept up from when it first opened. The room was quiet even with the train rolling by at night, you were unable to hear them from the room.

Outstanding hotel, even for a Marriott. You simply won't do any better on location. The best shopping and fine dining are steps from the hotel. You can also find bars, desserts, and a museum outside. It has a nice salt water indoor pool which we enjoyed.

We recently had a three night stay here and were pleased with the spacious rooms,, free Wi-Fi, and well-equipped fitness center. Covered parking adjacent for a nominal fee. Breakfast buffet is typical but one can also order from menu. Very courteous waitstaff. Learning how to adjust room temperature and fan controls requires patience. Excellent location with abundant restaurant choices nearby... More

We stayed here beginning of May for my son's graduation. Nice clean hotel and great location if wanting to walk the Normal downtown area and campus/quad. Parking garage is attached which is great if weather inclement. Would definitely stay here again!

I am sorry you were not able to enjoy our pool during your stay. I will make sure our engineering team is checking on the water temperature. However, I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the wedding. Hopefully you will have another chance to visit us and make sure you get to enjoy our pool and spa. More

We stayed while attending a wedding. The accommodations were fine, nothing spectacular. The bed was not great..sunk in the middle. The hotel itself is lovely and made for a beautiful setting for the reception. It was convenient to get to our room from the reception hall. We took our son to the pool, but the water was way too cold... More
