There are so many great small rooms for breakout sessions and large rooms for meetings and vendors. Great local food. Lots of vegetables and vegetarian friendly environment. Great sandwiches and good selctionof main courses for omnivores so no dilemma there.

No reason to stay anywhere other than the iHotel...that is if you are there for the college or football, or other University function. This hotel is simply the best in the area, with free daily breakfast, and free day-passes to the ARC, there is no better deal in town. The hotel and all the rooms are clean and well functioning...

My son recently got married at the I Hotel. I can not say enough good things about this hotel or the staff. Everything was perfect.

Great location, first class service including reaching out prior to our stay to inquire about bottled water, newspaper preference, etc. Well appointed, bright and comfortable rooms. Fitness center was small but clean and had everything we needed. I would highly recommend and would definitely stay again.

We stayed at the I Hotel this past weekend while dropping our son at college. The hotel is very modern/clean and the staff is very nice and professional.

We did not stay in this hotel, but rather held our son's wedding rehearsal dinner here. Living three states away we thought that planning the event might be a bit difficult, but the event staff made the whole process relativly easy.
