February 8, 2024

Regardless of what brings you to our brilliant community, we have ample choices to lay your head at the end of what we hope is a good day in the Champaign-Urbana area. With over 45 hotels, bed & breakfasts, camping, and a few unique overnight destinations, we have a cozy place to curl up for the night.

 

Area Hotels I Hotel & Conference Center

In and around Champaign-Urbana, you’ll find over 4,500 hotel rooms available to you. From properties right on the University of Illinois campus such as the I Hotel & Conference Center, Illini Union Hotel, and Towneplace Suites by Marriott, to dozens of nearby hotels less than a mile from campus, you have plenty of options. Our extended stays make it easy for you to visit your college student or enjoy your business trip, and our downtown Champaign hotel, Hyatt Place, keeps you close to our culinary district. Check out all of our hotel properties and make your reservations.

 

Pro Tip: Several events throughout the year do create hotel sell-outs. Call us at 217-351-4133 so we can help you navigate your stay!

 

Bed & Breakfasts Champaign Garden Inn

Want something a little more homey during your visit? We have a number of bed & breakfasts that make perfect getaways. Just off of West Side Park in downtown Champaign, you’ll find Champaign Garden Inn ready to welcome you. The Senator’s Inn & Pub in Savoy is minutes from Willard Airport and is home to popular bakery, Reg Cakes. In Monticello, check out the Zybell House, a historic property right off the Courthouse Square. See all of our bed & breakfasts here.

 

 

Camping 

We’re no strangers to sleeping under the stars, especially with the only International Dark Sky Park in Illinois at the Middle Fork River Forest Preserve complete with a camping ground so you can see the Milky Way. Make your reservations during their open season. In Sullivan, camp right off of the beautiful Lake Shelbyville at the Sullivan Marina and Campground. You’ll love the sunsets on our prairie skies. Lodge Park in Monticello also offers options, just a few miles away from Allerton Park & Retreat Center.

 

 

Unique Stays

Want a totally different overnight experience? We’ve got a few ideas. In Monticello, stay in the historic mansion at Allerton Park & Retreat Center. These recently restored rooms will make you feel like you’re on the set of Downtown Abbey. Don’t miss other opportunities to stay in the Carriage House or Gate House! 

 

At Aikman Wildlife in Arcola, you can stay in the Elk Ridge bed and breakfast and overlook the wildlife with zebras, bison, camels, and much more! In Villa Grove, Prairie Rim Ranch welcomes you to stay on their property to connect to the land, hike their trails, and view the bison they raise.

 

In Sullivan, an hour south of Champaign-Urbana, you can plan a perfect getaway with a variety of cottage rentals in the woods and near Lake Shelbyville. This makes a perfect girlfriend getaway!
