The quality, service and attention to details are similar to Ritz,Taj,Four Seasons and Mandarin. I would highly recommend. Chose the venue for my daughter's wedding. Wedding reception was held at the spacious conference center with a nice patio and orange umbrellas. All our guests appreciated the complimentary comfortable airport shuttle service and the complimentary shuttle service to University of Illinois...

Friendly staff. Had a late check in and was extremely tired. They were so nice and quick to get us our key and offered bottled water which was very appreciated. The room is so clean and modern and very comfortable. Have stayed here a few times now and has never disappointed us. Great location. Love this place!

We recently stay at the I Hotel. The day before we were scheduled to arrive, Robert, the concierge, called us to see if we needed anything special in our room. He suggested bottles of water (Voss) and asked us if we wanted the Chicago Tribune. Of course we agreed to the water and paper. Later I called back and told...

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...
