Best place to stay when you are in town as far as I am concerned - the hotel itself is modern, bright, wonderful rooms and the staff are all extremely helpful. They even provide a car service for running to and from downtown which was extremely helpful - we were interviewing at the U of I careers fair and parking...

Loved this hotel.... Spacious rooms, clean big bathrooms and gracious front desk staff. One of the nicer hotels I've stayed in for quite some time. Starbucks kiosk and workout facility really topped it. The service /wait staff in attached Houlihan's was not up to par with the rest of the hotel. Literally had to ask someone to take our order....

My husband and I enjoy staying at the I Hotel because of the exceptional and friendly service, and the well-designed accessible room. We need wheelchair accessibility in our accommodations and the I Hotel is among the best we have ever visited. The design is elegant, contemporary, and conveniently located at the south edge of the University of Illinois campus, perfect...

Everything about the place was perfect. We requested for an early check in and they happily obliged and even picked us up from the Amtrak station. The staff was very helpful and even more so as I was travelling with an infant. I would definitely stay here again.

This eight year old hotel is contemporary, with spacious and comfortable rooms. Our room was extremely clean, which I've never seen in my 25+ years of travel. The bed was very comfortable, room to unpack, nice bathroom counter size, great shower pressure. Only downside was continental breakfast was included, but you have the option to order (and pay for) off...

This hotel is situated on the University of Illinois - Urbana Champaign campus. We used this hotel to tour the University, and it was a very nice hotel. Nice decor, very comfortable bed, and everything was neat and tidy. However, for this level of hotel, I expected a bit better breakfast. All we were offered was to pick one drink,...

The hotel's European styled rooms are sleek and comfortable. Carpets could use some upgrades, but otherwise excellently maintained and cleaned. The conference center rooms are convenient and well laid out. Nice fitness area and the bar is convenient.

First chance to stay at this property, all the students were home after semester finals. Attended an Illini basketball game at the State Farm Center which is immediately north of the hotel. The front desk staff was first rate and opened the door for you every time you come in. Illini fans hit Houlihan's after the game and the bar...

This is a new modern and upscale hotel in Champaign, next to the main campus. The room was really nice. The staff is amazing beyond words. My suitcase was delayed by the airline for two days. They volunteered to keep track of it, give me updates and pick it up from the airport. The two ladies that helped (a manager...
