I was at a conference at the Univ. of IL and I could not have found a better location! I just had to go downstairs to attend the conference and I could go back to my room to refresh whenever I wanted. The room was nice and clean.
I have two complains/suggestions: first, the bed mattress should have been changed a few years ago. It had bumps and "body prints" typical of an old mattress. The second complain is about the breakfast, which is in a tiny room in which four people cannot stay at the same time. We had to take turns to get in the room and then we had to take our paper trays back to our room. It would not cost much (and it would drastically improve the hotel service) to have a room in which guests can sit at a table with other people to eat breakfast. It might be enough to convert one of the hotel rooms near the "breakfast closet"!
