I stayed here for one night recently on a family trip down state. It was a quick trip, so I can't say TOO much about the inner workings of the hotel, but from what I gathered it was a great stay.
The lobby was spacious and welcoming. I thought the open hallways was a nice touch... didn't feel as closed in and dark as a lot of hotel hallways do. They have a free shuttle within a 5 mile radius - this will take you to the Riverfront area with shops and restaurants as well as a few other places. Clean and friendly van and driver!
Our room partially faced the river and some of the riverfront. The room was well appointed... spacious and clean. The bed was VERY comfy! The bathroom amenities were really high end (forgot the brand, but I knew the name), which is always nice. I appreciated the clean bathroom.
The hotel has a manager's reception and it was the night we were there (a Saturday, which is rare). From 5:30-7:30pm, there were free snacks and alcoholic beverages. The beer/liquor drink selection was pretty good for a hotel reception (and for free). The bartender was friendly and the drinks were good! Perfect way to start an evening. The dining area was spacious and was busy.
After dinner, we walked back and had a drink at the lobby bar - also busy! The pool area looked nice but we didn't have time to enjoy it. If i'm ever in Peoria again (probably not likely any time soon), I would consider staying here. The rate was better than the Holiday Inn down the road and although not as new, it felt just as nice. Ample parking as well.
