This is a nice place and reasonably priced. Unfortunately it is located right next to the train tracks. I never knew so many trains ran through Champaign-Urbana. But I do now, they come through at 10:30 p.m., 11:00 p.m., 2:00 a.m. and around 6:30 am. and 6:45 a.m. and the blare the horn every time. You cannot get a decent night's sleep at this place because of the trains going through, which is quite unfortunate as this place is very cute. Also, bring all your own toiletries, as this place supplies nothing -- there was no bars of soap, no shampoo, no nothing.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Senator’s Inn and Pub in Savoy, IL, a few miles south of Champaign-Urbana. The beautiful brick building was built in 1915 and is the former mansion of Senator Henry M. Dunlap. Today, it is a gracious facility. The original house on this property, owned by Matthias Dunlap was said to have been visited by Abraham Lincoln and was used as a stop on the Underground Railroad for fleeing slaves. At one time, the current 25 room house was the largest in the community. ... more less
