I did not attend and I have no attachments to U of I. That said. Beautiful well kept rooms, modern amities, and all of it right on campus await you when you are able to check into Illini Union Hotel at University of Illinois. I have enjoyed visiting U of I through friends, family, and volunteer organizations; enjoyed walking the...

Thank you, arts713, for such a great review of the Illini Union Hotel! We are proud to be within such a beautifully preserved building here in the heart of the U of I campus. Also, thank you for mentioning our hard-working students. They are the lifeblood of the Illini Union, including the Hotel, and we couldn't do much of what...

It is a homecoming. My last being 2008 after my graduation in 1986 (no typo here). having spent 6 years (1980-1986) in UIUC. It is good to be back. The Illini Union Hotel is right in the heart of UIUC, with the gorgeous and serene quad right behind, engineering, Math, Stat, Chemistry in her vicinity. It is also near to...

My daughters and I stayed when in town to tour the University of Illinois. The location can't be beat! We received a discount at check in, and breakfast coupons, when I told them we were in town to tour. Starbucks in the building was an extra treat!

Located on the quad, with a lovely view of the greenest grass in Illinois, the hotel is a prime place to stay on campus. Rooms are just fine, maid service is good, and the feeling of old university style life is evident. Tables outside on the porches are great for sunning and talking, and there are plenty of indoor spots...

We visited there in March after our son received an offer from UIUC. Location of the hotel is the best, and got a chance to experience students daily routine, eat, relax and study. There is free parking too, and easy to go to Green street for all different kind the food, and go to campus buildings. Highly recommended. We will...

I was in town for a Leadership Academy held at the Illini Union one weekend. I have to say this building is beautiful inside and out. The staff at check-in were very courteous. The room was great! I had a beautiful view of the quad and the Law Building. While you are here definitely take a stroll around the quad....

We took our high school Junior Grandson to visit the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana and stayed on campus in this hotel. It also serves as the Student Union. It was lovely to be on campus. There is a Starbucks, bagel shop, and Wendy's in the building as well as a bowling alley! It is also very near other dinig...

It may be convenient, but it is old, not well maintained or cleaned, and noisy, too! We stayed for an academic competition and had music playing until midnite and restart at 6 am. The heater was loud and uncontrollable. The bathroom looked like a 1960s gym locker complete with beige 4x4 ceramic tile, mildew on the grout, but great water...

Old building, but centrally located on the Illinois campus. I was put up there during a visit to the University, so cannot complain, but the room seemed old, with old plumbing. There is no place to eat in the building, except for some fast food places in the basement. They give you a coupon for $5 toward breakfast, but there...
