ROOMS 

Review of Home2 Suites by Hilton Champaign Urbana, IL

First of all, I must say, the color combination of the room is very appealing as they have used the shades of green, yellow and rust colors. Playing with the various hues of these combinations the room looks warm and relaxed. The bright abstract style of paintings adorning the printed wallpapered walls also makes the atmosphere cheerful.

The two Queen size beds are comfortable, cozy and good for a family of four. I would rate 5 out of 5 for sleep quality.

  1. This looks like the perfect place to relax after a day of town exploration! Also, the gym and the indoor pool are a big plus and I really like the interior design. If I ever visit this are I’d definitely consider staying at this hotel.

  2. I have not yet stayed at a location with Home2 Suites. It looks like there was great indoor and outdoor common space to hand out. Sitting by the fire at night would be great. When we are on the road for a long time, we love to have a kitchen so we don’t have to eat out every day. This looks like a great spot with a family if you are visiting Champain.

  3. The accommodations look perfect for a home away from home, while on a vacation. I love having a kitchen in my room as an option for home cooked meals. The outdoor fireplace sitting area looks like the perfect place to talk about my travels with a friend over a glass of wine.

  4. What a funky place to stay. The accommodation looks good, as you say relaxed and welcoming. The rooms are quite large as well and equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. I love a fire pit, what a relaxing place for a drink.

  5. This looks lovely! You’re right about the bright and cheery color schemes as well as the unique modern designs. That outdoor fireplace looks so cozy; I’m sure it would be great to sit out there during the fall and warm up by the fire. If I ever get a chance to visit Champaign Urbana, I’ll check if Home2 Suites has any availability! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  6. I really like the sound of this hotel, especially the friendly welcome. All the colorful decorations also help make it feel a little less impersonal and buisinessy. For me, the kitchenette would be a major plus, the lack of kitchen is one of the reasons I usually avoid staying at hotels.

  7. This hotel looks awesome. I like the outdoor lounge and fire place, the bathroom with Neutrogena toiletries oh that’s good. I would love to stay here for a week!

  8. Great review!! The hotel look really comfy but was it affordable?? I really how minimalist the hotel was, nothing too bright or wacky, which what most hotel opt for. I really like the size of the room, not extremely compact but fit the right size.

  9. If I would like to have a staycation, this would be the place that definitely I would love to choose to. The place looks like a home to me, because they cater what actually the client needs like infant beds, not all hotels are having this kind of concern for toddler. It is also very luxurious and I love the outdoor settings with the fireplace and gazebo.

  10. Home2 Suites by Hilton Champaign Urbana IL has all the makings of a perfect stay. Loving the colourful vibrancy of the decor which lends it a very contemporary aura. One of the best things is the sit out with the small fireplace. Looks like a great place to hang out in. the temperature controlled swimming pool too looks really inviting. 24 hour availability of tea and coffee too is a bonus!

  11. I really like the décor of Home2 Suites by Hilton in Champaign Urbana IL and being welcomed with a drink and cookies is always a bonus! I’m amazed the room had a full size refrigerator and a dishwasher plus a grocery store on site. This is an ideal space for families

  12. Very interesting. I have never heard of this Home2 Suites before even though we do use Hilton from time to time. Looks very cozy and clean, I would definitely like it. Extra points for the coffee at the room, I can’t start my day without it! Great find!

  13. Some parts looked so familiar as I stayed in a Home2Suites a few years ago in Layton, Utah. I love the fireplace and gazebo at this one though. I don’t remember if the location I stayed at had that. to be quite honest, I was attending a business conference across the street and payed little attention to the details. If on a pleasure trip, sitting by that fireplace must be so relaxing on cool evenings!
