We spent the weekend in Champaign to attend a wedding and the bride and groom recommended the I-Hotel for our stay. We loved it. We called them shortly before our planned stay to add a day and they were great about accommodating us for a day earlier than originally planned. They have an agreement with the university to use their workout - pool facility. They even offer a shuttle even though it is a short walk away. The university was extraordinary. My fiance' enjoyed the equipment while I luxuriated in their olympic pool. The hotel offered shuttles to the reception location and back to the hotel. They gave us coupons to enjoy coffee and breakfast item in their coffee shop (very nice thing to do) and Houlihans restaurant was attached to the hotel. They didnt have chicken salad on the menu, so the waiter sent the chef out to ask me how I would like him to make it for me and it was DELICIOUS. I enjoyed eating it in their outside garden. The whole experience: hotel and Houlihans was perfect!
