“Nice!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014 via mobile

We stayed one night for our anniversary, short trip to town. Lovely hotel. Parking was a bit of a hassle as sky bridge was closed. Our room was small but well done with high end fixtures. There were two weddings this weekend and it would have made a lovely venue!

Stayed June 2014, travelled as a couple

The Peoria Marriott Marquette at 501 Main Street in Peoria, Illinois; 1-309-637-6500. The hotel is an old red-brown brick 12 story building with 286 rooms. The interior of the hotel is a surprising blend of old and modern that I found pleasing. My room was small, but adequate for my needs. The shower was new and slopped to one end. The low end had a metal plate type drain that was very slow draining. I was concerned that water would overflow on to the floor. Other people in my group noted the same concern.
The hotel had a central lounge/bar area that was very popular with everyone. The hotel has an in-house restaurant named "Table 19". The was good and the prices was reasonable for a hotel. There were other more modern (new) hotels in the area, but if I am back in Peoria, I will stay at this hotel.

I stayed on a business trip for 1 night. The staff was all excellent, very helpful, etc. An old hotel, but obviously remodeled in past few years, and all done very nicely. The rooms were very clean, great accommodations, parking garage adjoins the hotel for ease of parking, across the street from the civic center, so very handy for events to attend, etc. I walked a 1/2 mile or so to the river for dinner, there is a paddleboat and great walkway and views of the river. Will stay again if back in Peoria.

Tucked in the heart of a downtown business district this hotel was a pleasant surprise. If you love the grand hotels of old this is the place for you with polished marble floors and a pretty nice layout for afternoon business entertainment or overnight stay. Valet Service was a little stiff at $12. New parking structure on the back side is very nice, but the walk to the front door is through construction, garbage storage areas, and through the original garage which is not that pleasing and a good walk if you need a little exercise, but a real task for the handicapped. Eventually it appears there will be a skywalk from the parking structure direct to the lobby. Bar area is split into 3 areas with large comfy chairs and tables, a belly up to the bar area with stools, and a smaller area with more privacy tables within walking distance to the restaurant area. Courtesy limo will provide transport and pickup to local restaurants and that was a nice feature. Everything appears to be modern and refreshed...the rooms were excellent and clean, the mattress was absolutely wonderful...slept all night for once without any noise from hallway traffic. Nice big screen TV, nice layout of furniture except for desk chair which was very lousy...no Wi-Fi in room without added charge...obsolete business model, but it was a very clean and modernized room. The streets were very clean, with updated lighting, hardscaping, flower pots and music playing from every street light. At ten there was surprisingly little foot traffic even though there were strip joints and other attractions that usually draw a rough or undesirable faction of society. Nice stay for in by 5 out by 7 am stay.

Room Tip: Handicapped rooms right off the elevator on higher floors, that is not the norm but it made up for t...

the best part of this hotel is location- Right downtown, close to Caterpillar. Just about to start a new renovation. Restaurant was decent too. but again within walking distance of several good restaurants.

The Pere Marquette was adequate for a business trip. My room was on the third floor and it was a bit smaller than I had expected. Probably because it is an older hotel. Fine for 1 person but could be cramped with multiple people.

The room had a desk, flat screen TV, mini fridge (not filled with anything but cold), a TINY closet and bathroom.

Staff was very friendly. Breakfast in the restaurant was good. Room Service was quick and very reasonably priced.

One con: No waste basket in the bathroom was kind of annoying. I think that would especially be annoying if traveling with babies.

Overall, I would stay here again if I needed to be downtown. Not many nice places to grab a meal close by besides the hotel and the restaurant in the Mark Twain hotel. There are a couple of dive bars across the street, though I didn't go into any of them.

This place was outstanding from a customer service stand point. From the moment we arrived we were well received by the entire staff. We were in attendance for a wedding reception. Marta, Connie, Omar and Nick were a few of the names that come to mind when I think of the amazing weekend we spent at this nicely remodeled hotel! I cannot thank them enough for taking care of all of us . I know that when I think of a place to stay while visiting Peoria, that the Pere' Marquette will be the first Hotel that will come to mind. Thank you so much and I look forward to seeing you all again.

Joe
