I was pleasantly surprised by this newly renovated hotel. Much nicer than the other hotel in town.

I went to Peoria just to dine at June, a true destination restaurant.

Look no further.

I don't travel often, so I'm pretty sensitive about where I stay. I was impressed by the unique quality of the Mark Twain Hotel. The staff at the front desk were very friendly, but I found the housekeeping staff to be a bit rude. The hotel itself was very clean with a good amount of space in the room and Bath and Body Works toiletries in the bathroom. The attached restaurant had a very average yet pricey dinner. However, the breakfast buffet was amazing and the staff there were equally as friendly and helpful as the desk staff. In total, I had a very comfortable stay and enjoyed the experience. If provided the opportunity, I would not hesitate to visit again.

Just spent two nights at the mark Twain. Overall it was a good experience. We booked a studio room at the Family Riverplex Pass package rate of #129/night for two people in a studio room. The room was very nice - good desk area, flatscreen TV with DVD and surround sound, refigerator and microwave, bathroom with walk-in shower (shower only - no tub). Unfortunately the hotel has the noisy individual room heater/AC systems that rooar when the fan is on an roar even louder when the AC kicks in. I truly hate these units! The kng bed had a matress that was extremely firm - i.e., rock hard. Although the room faced the road, we didn't find traffic noise to be a problem (thanks, perhaps, to the AC). Free parking, two drink coupons per adult per night, and decent cooked to order options of eggs, omelets and waffles plus other items on a hot buffet helped offset the relatively high rate for the hotel. A good option if trtavel takes you to downtown Peoria.

I come to Peoria often, and as my best friend works at Caterpillar next door, it's a great place to meet up and have a drink or an amazing Greek Pizza before we hit the town. The lobby and bar are amazing, think Teddy Roosevelt's study. The rooms are cute with great toiletries. However, the windows have slat blinds on them and the lights from the bridge make it difficult to sleep. There aren't too many other restaurants within walking distance for dinner, but there are great lunch carts in that area. The bar at the Mark Train is so good, you'll want to stay there, though. I get free drink tickets, too, not sure if everyone gets that. Also, there's no business center or wireless internet, so if you want to get some work done, you need to go somewhere else. The staff will be happy to print you out Yahoo Maps or get you phone numbers. they're great.

It was worth it. Wife and I enjoyed a day and night overlooking the Illinois River from our fourth floor room. From the lobby to our room, all was first class. In the morning, breakfast of omelets completed our fantasy. We left Peoria knowing that, one day, we would return to the Mark Twain Hotel.

Staff, room and free breakfast in the morning were great as was the wifi, sitting room and decor. Even better was the free dvd's and popcorn. Not so great was the noise from the interstate if your room faces the river. Once my room was changed, it was a perfect stay.
