“Mark Twain Hotel”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Myself and Wife spent a night for a wedding. The room was newly remodel. The layout of the room had all the amenities a person would need. The room did have a musty odor. I think it was from the A/C. My Wife thought is was from the Bed linen. We went for a wedding reception. The shuttle dropped us off and picked us up from the location. I would recommend this place.

Dear Jason,

Thank you for writing a review. I am glad that you enjoyed the stay overall, however, I'm concerned about the odor. I'm sorry you had to experience that. I'm not sure what room you were in but I'd like to do if you wouldn't mind providing me with that information. It would help us for sure.

Hope to hear from you.

I just love this hotel! The atmosphere is old charm with every modern amenity! Rooms are great, the restaurant is excellent and the breakfast buffet is wonderful!
I do not have one bad thing to say about the Mark Twain!

What a great hotel, beautiful view of the riverfront & the 74 bridge, live jazz bands on the outside patio, a full serve breakfast that is superb! Rooms are very clean and comfortable, microwave and mini fridge in the rooms, clean and comfortable beds and plenty of fresh linens!
The bar is delightful and the restaurant on site is top shelf too!
They have a delightful air freshner in the lobby that makes it smell like fresh backed cookies!!!! Easy on and off of interstate 74 makes it easy to get around town, plus they have a complimentary shuttle too!
Lastly the staff is awesome, always pleasant and helpful. Special shout out to Li behind the check in desk, she was outstanding, a text book example of WONDERFUL customer service! Can't wait for my next stay in Peoria IL!

Hi Michael,

Thank you for choosing to stay with us again when you are in town visiting your friends and family. It's nice to know that you feel like this is a bit of a "home away from home" when you travel and that you enjoy our many amenities. I am impressed that you mentioned the scent - it's called Vanilla Bourbon and it really makes you suddenly want a cookie! Good thing we bake cookies in the mornings for our guests arriving in the afternoons during the week.

We will make sure to give Li your accolades and a "gold star" for being mentioned. We love having Li as one of our front desk attendants.

See you again soon and until then, safe travels...

I regularly travel to Peoria on business and invariably stay at the Mark Twain. Before I first stayed at the hotel, I imagined kind of a rustic, riverboat-style folksy place, and I was very pleasantly surprised to find newly renovated rooms and an excellent dining experience, along with a lobby that retained some of the Mark Twain charm. As I've since stayed there fairly often (in excess of 30 visits), I've enjoyed some of the other perks that come with this boutique hotel, including a complimentary breakfast featuring a great omelette bar, and their friendly and gracious staff. If you are looking for an experience that will be different from a large-chain hotel (in a good way), I would wholeheartedly recommend the Mark Twain Hotel.

Room Tip: This hotel does not have a pool, but offers free passes to the RiverPlex Recreation and Wellness Cen...

Hello Mr. G,

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. As one of our regular guests who travels often, you are one of the big reasons why we are what we are. Business travelers make up the majority of our guests and we really respect your comments and opinions. We also enjoy having you as a guest and chatting with you when you have time. I hope you feel comfortable enough with us to let us know if there is anything more we can do to enhance your stays with us.

We appreciate the review and hope that we can continue to be your "home away from home" when you're here in Peoria.

PS: If you'd visited us ten years ago, it was exactly what you expected...riverboats galore! You wouldn't recognize the place now. We'll have to find some old photos to show you.

Best regards,

Naomi

My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon. It was an amazing experience, the staff was very friendly, rooms clean and comfortable. They even had chocolates and champagne sent up to the room when they found out it was our wedding night, completely free of charge. This is the best hotel in peoria.

My wife and I had a 13 day holiday in Illinois staying at 6 hotels. Our stay for one night in the Mark Twain could not be faulted. We had a room on the 8th Floor overlooking the river. No complaints at all about the room breakfast or facilities.

Hi Brian872,

Thank you for writing a review at TripAdvisor - I really appreciate it.

We're honored that you chose our property as a part of your holiday and we are happy that you enjoyed your stay. The best way to "see" Peoria is in one of our larger, top-floor Deluxe rooms as you have, with great views of the city or the Illinois river.

We hope that if your travels bring you back to Peoria, you'd consider stopping by to see us again.

Cheers,

Naomi
