After our flight at the Champaign airport was cancelled for the second time we were faced with grim waiting and hours of train ride to the Chicago O'Hare. Sam offered us a...

We were pleasantly surprised in how "cool contemporary"/modern and nice the hotel was! The food was excellent which was also a HUGE perk! To make it even more enjoyable, the staff was incredibly kind and helpful. I'd like to mention on particular person who was really a shining star and that is the manager, Sam. He treated my friend &...

Absolutely every staff member we encountered was superb (example - ran from desk to hold doors for luggage cart). Several other guests were there for the concert, so they offered a...

This is a beautiful hotel that is clean and located just south of the main U of I campus near the Assembly Hall. I was impressed with the modern design and the fresh smell in the halls and my clean room. The staff are professional and friendly, offering genuine smiles and greetings.

The hotel is a bit pricey, but the amenities that are included make it worth the price. This is an excellent location for either a football game at Memorial Stadium, any event at State Farm Center or the research park. The hotel is nicely decorated in a modern style. The on site fitness center is pretty well appointed with bicycles,...
