Very poor WiFi. I was never told about parking. I had to pay for my own parking and was told about using my key card at the garage after I checked out which was too late and the card didn’t even work at the garage. There was only one small garbage can in the room. The bathroom could have been cleaner. My room was not ready, and I was given a room with a horrible view after I said I would take 2 queens instead of my original king.

They over booked rooms. My room "was not clean yet" at check in time (4pm) but should be ready in 30-60 minutes. I was told they would text me when the room was ready. At 715pm, I text and asked if my room was ready. I was told "yes. I'm sorry for the delay. Please stop at the front desk to pick up yohr keys." I replied that we were out for the evening (the purpos3 of our trip to Bloomington-Normal) and would not be in until later. At 10:45pm when we arrived back at the hotel, I was informed that our room (booked and paid for a month in advance and I had been told at 715 was ready) had been given away, but they would pay for a room at another hotel. So we had to drive across town to stay at a hotel miles away from our family who was also in town.

I was very pleased with this hotel ! The front desk was always helpful and smiling ! I will definitely stay here again ! Plus it was right next to the train station and very near my sons college and right in the middle of town ! Perfect 👌

Close to Illinois State. Only a block away from the dorms.

I am in town once a month and this is one of my choice hotels. Convient location, friendly and accomodating staff. I also appreciate that the rooms have a microwave and minifridge. The only issue I had this time was printing in their business center. Their computer wouldn't recognize my USB.

Hotel is situated in the middle of a very nice area of shops and restaurants in Normal. Many nice places to eat in walking distance of the hotel. Historic Normal art deco movie theatre immediately behind the hotel is wonderful if you have time (they show old movies that you may never have had the opportunity to see on the "big screen." Gym was very nice, overlooking indoor pool. Staff was exceedingly helpful and polite. Rooms were clean and well appointed. No complaints whatsoever.

Unevental. Travel a lot & this hotel was way over priced

Hotel was clean and vebrant. The Staff was friendly and engaging. Convenient parking adjacent to the hotel for a minimal fee. Great value.

Very friendly staff, clean room and great location

Very nice. The room was excellent and the staff very friendly.

Rooms were good and clean. Staff was very helpful. Shuttle service from airport to hotel and from hotel to airport were good. Drivers were very good.

This was a very nicely appointed hotel that was conveniently located to the area universities. I would go back.

Excellent hotel - friendly, clean and convenient! I would highly recommend staying at this facility and will do so again given the opportunity!

Hotel staff very accomodating. Hotel and room was very clean and comfortable. I would highly recommnend a stay there if in the Bloomington-Normal area. I definitely will re-book the next time I'm there.

This was a difficult trip for my wife and I. We had to attend the memorial service and funeral of my wife's oldest sister. They lived in a small town about 40 miles away. We commuted 80 miles each day for 3 days, and returned to the hotel each night. Our room was very comfortable and the service was excellent. Check in and out was fast. We would reccommend this hotel for a traveler in need of a good night's sleep. The amenities were excellent as well.

I WAS IN TOWN TO SEE THE GAME (ILLINOIS STATE & EASTERN ILLINOIS). THE HOTEL IS IN A PERFECT LOCATION CLOSE TO ILLINOIS STATE.THE DINNING WAS EXCELENT BECAUSE I HAD DINNER & BREAKFAST THERE TWO NIGHTS IN A ROW AND ALSO BROUGHT SOME FAMILY MEMBERS OVER FOR DINNER AFTER THE GAME.

We loved the hotel, but don't stay on the 5th floor facing the front. They have a balcony with all the air conditioning/heating equipment on it! It was horrible to look out. Otherwise, it was a gorgeous hotel with beautiful decorative touches, and the staff couldn't have been nicer. We enjoyed a cocktail at the bar, and in the morning had the breakfast buffet which was quite good. We didn't swim in the pool, but it looked terrific, as did the fitness center and the computer room. I'd definitely stay there again!
