First the good. This is a beautifully restored hotel with a modern feel. Everything was spotless and I loved the elegant touches showcasing this building history. The bar area is a perfect business hotel, wide open and bright with a lot of lounge area for single diners with wide open spaces. Plus, I liked the full restaurant menu available in the bar area. The food was terrific and the addition of an express menu is great.
One two areas of concerns. I understand that the parking situation is temporary, but this needs to be fixed ASAP! I am a fit person with two small bags and it is a long haul from the garage to the hotel on a cold night. Second, this is a problem with the ventilation. I too had the same problem as others, with the temperature ranging from 60 to 72 over the course of the night, with the thermostat set at 67 the entire time. I thought this was a problem with my room only (11th floor), but apparently this is pervasive.
By fixing these things, this would easily be the best hotel in Peoria.
