Urbana hotel cuts rates for students during finals
URBANA -- Can you put a price tag on silence?
The Illini Union Hotel at the University of Illinois is banking on it.
The (Champaign) News-Gazette reports the 74-room hotel in Urbana is offering a special deal during final exams. The $45-per-night deal is aimed at stressed out students who are trying to get away from their roommates and end-of-semester dormitory noise.
The offer doesn't include taxes.
The hotel's website says rooms typically cost between $122 and $199 a night, although student rates start at $105 a night.
The package doesn't include room service, but comes with snacks and a gift card to a bowling alley.
Hotel manager Wally Lotz says the rooms are often reserved by parents. So far about 10 students have booked rooms.
