Probably the nicest hotel in C-U

Posted Feb 8, 2017
Location: It's convenient walking distance to the Assembly Hall and the tech firms on South Campus, but that's about it. Free shuttle to and from airport.
Wonderful staff; clean, comfortable room; decent restaurant on premises; nice touches like Starbucks coffee in the rooms and plenty of outlets for your electronics. Only complaint was that I had trouble regulating the temperature in the room; it always seemed to be hot.

Short stay in the Champaign-Urbana area

Posted Jan 25, 2017
Pros: The quality/condition of the rooms, ease of access to campus, & excellent WiFi are all great features .
Cons: The continental breakfast is a bit lackluster for the quality of the hotel.
Location: The hotel's location allows ready access the the UIUC campus and a wide array of activities there.
I'm a repeat customer at the I Hotel; this was my third stay while I was visiting family in the area. The hotel's quality - room condition and appointments, comfort of the bed, attentiveness of the staff - never disappoints. I'm also a UIUC alumna (undergrad), so the hotel's location is also a big draw for me. The hotel is popular, especially during football season, so I'm always pleased when I can nab a room; off-season is better (also lower rates).

Very nice hotel near sports stadiums.

Posted Jan 17, 2017
We love staying at the I when we visit our daughter at U of I. Very convenient location. Nice bonus to have Houillans attached to hotel. Rooms are not overly spacious but all we really do is sleep there and the beds are extremely comfortable.
