We stayed at the Illini Union hotel for Dad's weekend. The location was great and we really enjoyed being close to all that UIUC has to offer. We had a great view of the quad from the hotel room. The room is a little dated, but we didn't mind. It was clean, and the beds where comfortable. Had a large... More

We stayed at the Illini Union hotel the night before a college tour visit with our son. It has a great central location if you want to be right in the middle of the University of Illinois. We had a great view of the quad from the hotel room. The room however was tired. Paint was peeling off the ceiling.... More

Loved the quietness and able to relax. Housekeeping are very friendly and professional in tending for a comfortable stay. Great idea of offering the $5 breakfast coupon, which could possibly increased to $10, instead. A map of the layout of the Student Union would have been helpful, since I got lost on my 1st day trying to find a eatery... More

Great visit! Interesting architecture. We arrived around 3pm and parked in the half circle in front of the building. (We later moved to the adjacent lot and were told we could stay there until 6pm the next day free of charge. Perfect for our needs)! We went through the front doors, up the stairs, through another set of doors and... More

Really liked my stay at the Union. Very comfortable, but small beds. Two in a bed would be tough. Huge flat screen tv, well decorated room. Bathroom was a throw back to the fifties...kind of a cool step back in time. Small, but good shower. Could have used a couple more degrees of cooling. They have sealed the windows, and... More

This hotel is on the University of Illinois campus. It is in the student Union, so is convenient for visitors to the University. Rates were reasonable, and rooms were quiet. It is a majestic old building, but the rooms are updated and very comfortable. There is nightlife nearby, especially for a younger crowd. The area seemed safe and friendly. Would... More

The room was clean and tidy. The A/C could have been a might cooler. Our room had a view of the roof, but we were there to see the U and 2 out of 3 of us didn't spend much time in the room. The third person had to leave the room and look for a cooler place to sit... More

We reserved a queen, but it was more like a double. The free breakfast is just muffins, bagels and donuts. They ran out of coffee the day we were there. On check in we were told 11 am was check out time only to find out when we left it was 1:00. The location is great, nothing else!

Thank you, Monroe85, for voicing your concerns. We always appreciate feedback. It’s likely that you were, in fact, given a Queen bed, unless all Queens were unavailable at time of check-in. Also, checkout time is always 1pm at Illini Union Hotel, so we will be sure to reinforce that with our entire staff to avoid any miscommunication in the future.... More

What could be better than staying at the North end of the Quad, with walking access to the entire campus plus all the bars and eateries on Green Street? Oh, and what's that? It's recently been refurnished, is fairly affordable, AND you can book online now?! It's the best of all worlds. We stay at the Union frequently and it's... More

Stayed here for a college tour visit with my daughter and the location proved to be excellent as its right in the Student Union. Check in, parking and the room were all excellent.
