The IHotel was comfortable and well appointed. The fitness facilities were very modern and clean, and complimentary ear buds for the treadmills was a nice touch. The room was modern and comfortable. I stayed for a conference, and found the conference services to be above the level of service I expect at university sites. The food was well prepared and...

When I booked a room at this hotel recently through Priceline, I was a bit sceptical because I had never heard of iHotel. The price was right and reviews seemed positive, so I thought I would give it a try. What a delightful surprise! The hotel isn't anything that would stand out in the outside, but differentiates itself once you...

Who would have thought that one can find a five star quality hotel in a university town. The I-hotel fits this bill. Well maintained property with a focus on getting it right the first time. Staff is there for you, and it shows. The place delivers a first rate product, and is the place to stay when visiting the university.

The hotel is newer, it is well-maintained. They have a little courtyard some flowing water and comfortable chairs to enjoy outdoor temperatures and weather in a somewhat protected environment. Would recommend a visit for any reason. Rooms are clean, well appointed, and comfortable.

I hate hotel smells. So it was a breath of fresh air to walk into the room at I Hotel and not to be assaulted by that familiar "hotel smell." Free unlimited bottles of water, and a free breakfast item and drink in the morning to boot. Bathroom door was interesting -- in our room it was actually a sliding...

This was a terrific location for a small conference (about 120 people) with well-appointed hotel rooms and a variety of different-sized meeting rooms in separate wings of the same building. The hotel catering operation handled most of the meals for the conference, and although the food in that kind of large-scale service never rivals what you get at a good...

What a great hotel. Effortless stay. Very clean room. The bed is like a soft, delightful cloud. Pillows are extra fluffy. The shuttle service is quick, efficient, and the drivers are above average friendly and knowledgable. I come to University of Illinois in May every year for a conference, and this is my first time staying here. I can't wait...

I stayed here in May 2015 for a U of I Extension training session, and being unfamiliar with the hotel I was not sure what to expect. I travel a bit for work, so I'm used to the average, just above adequate hotel experience. Let me tell you...this WAS NOT one of those run of the mill hotel stay experiences....

Attended a charity auction and dinner and stayed at the I-Hotel. It is an excellent facility for meetings and rooms. The location is just off the Illinois campus. Highly recommended as a place to stay.
