The hotel is centrally located on campus in a beautiful spot. It is charming and well maintained. The drawback is lack of services such as breakfast and food options (very limited around). Also, we stayed for to nights and our room was not set up/cleaned. On the other hand, on the day we were to check out, someone popped in... More

Great location but rooms need a major upgrade. Furnishings not nice. Terrible TV reception. Bed was okay. Room hasn't been redone since 30 or 40 years ago. Not up to par compared to other major university hotels.

We were in town for a tour, tailgate and football game. Great location, clean room, excellent staff. Everything you could need or want is in one building. Will stay here again if daughter chooses IU for college.

The Biddle is in the center of the IU campus inside the student union. It is comparable - and a bit cheaper - than off campus hotels. The accommodations are very nice and upscale and the staff incredibly friendly. If you have to come to campus, this is definitely the place to be. Make reservations early for school events and...

Ideally located on campus. Clean but very small rooms. Friendly desk staff make no attempt to put guests in best available rooms so be sure to ask for a quiet room not on the first floor. Parking in / out privileges are a plus.

Great location for visitors to IU. Staff are great and the rooms are comfortable if a bit dated. Some areas of the rooms need updating, but beds were clean and very comfortable, which is important for us. You cannot be any closer to IU than staying in the union. Great place to stay.

A wonderful place to stay, especially when visiting IU. Clean, well appointed, well run. Great location in the center of the IU campus. Broadway shows, art museum just steps away. Nothing could be finer.

Parents Weekend. It's a shame when hotels exploit people and jack the prices up for certain events. But all the hotels do it. For the money we paid the hotel was not worth it. There is nothing special about the hotel other than the location.

The location is perfect for any campus activity. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. Definitely eat at the Sunday Morning brunch in the Tudor Room. The architecture of the building is beautiful and I am looking forward to sitting in front of the fireplace in the fall and winter.

Outstanding care and condition. Clean, comfortable and great staff support. The Union has plenty of amenities immediately available. Great spot to go in any direction from the Lilly Library to Kirkwood Ave.
