Urbana hotel cuts rates for students during finals

URBANA, Ill. (Associated Press) -

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 reported 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.
