I stayed in this hotel for a visit to the University of Illinois campus and it was extremely convenient. I was concerned that parking might be an issue as is typical on campus, but I was able to park right outside the entrance to the union. My room was very clean, but the rooms are in need of renovation--the bathrooms particularly showed their age. Don't expect luxury at this hotel, but the service was great and it was a very convenient place to stay for a trip to campus.

Hi,
Thanks for the kind words. If your child chooses Illinois we'll hopefully see you for the next four years! I couldn't agree witrh you more regarding the bathrooms- they top our "to do" list. Enjoy the college selection process!

This hotel is located right on the campus so if one has to visit the school-UIUC- it would be perfect. I don't see why anyone would stay here other than that reason. The room was clean and quiet. Small room size, though. Within the hotel, there are small shops and eateries that you can grab quick snacks if you do not feel like going out but they are not sit down quality places. One thing that didn't help us was the wi-if situation. Their public access was broken down so that was a major inconvenience. Overall, it was a good location for us because we were visiting the school but it is just an average hotel.

The Illini Union hotel puts you right @ the heart of the campus ... Within walking distance of great restaurants and surrounded by the sights and sounds of university students in action on the Quad.

The rooms are a bit tired, it took awhile for hot water to arrive in the shower head, and the continential breakfast was average.

However, for us, location trumped datedness. It was a great place to stay for a night after watching a women's soccer match, and brilliant to show our children, from an up-close vantage point campus we once attended.

Thank you so much for staying here and for your candid review. While it seems like only yesterday since we remodeled it'sreally been since 2009 so yes we are looking at refurbishing some things.
Thanks again.

Stayed here on a work trip, paid by the university. First impression was pretty good - slow check in but friendly, happily gave us a parking pass ahead of when our room was ready, room clean and completely serviceable. They also gave us a choice of rooms when we checked in and we chose a quad view room. HOWEVER... When we returned from dinner around 9:30 there was very loud music and DJing outside our window on the quad. Now, we understand it is a college campus and we waited until 10:30 then decided to call the front desk to find out how long it would be going on. No one answered the phone - apparently they just done staff the desk overnight?? Not only that, but they had ample opportunity to warn us about the noise when they offered us a choice of rooms. It would have been easy to say that the quad room would be noiser... Nope, nothing. Loud music on a college campus I understand. Failure to warn us, total unavailability when we needed assistance... Totally unacceptable to me. Not worth the convenient location or the money. Seriously. Never again.

we were visiting the u of I. it was a room on the third floor of the student union. a perfect place to stay! we arrived the night before our tour and walked around and enjoyed the beautiful university grounds. the next day we were able to use the university gym- it needs a little face lift, as does the student union, but the rooms were very nice. our room was very comfortable and included a good continental breakfast across from our room. on these trips we usually stay in hamptons or fairfields and this was just as good.
we had a tour the next day so having the car parked - no charge- and right near the info session and tour was perfect! urbana champagne downtown is very cute and enough to do for an overnight.
front dest staff are students or employees but were really helpful.
