My husband and I were traveling through Peoria and decided to stay at the Courtyard Marriott. The hotel itself was very difficult to find. Our car's GPS took us across Peoria to basically a residential area yet told us we had arrived at our destination. We called the hotel and the young girl tried to be very helpful yet she appeared a little like me in that she may have been a little directionally challenged. Although she tried to help us to the best of her ability, she realized she wasn't a lot of help so she quickly tried to find someone to help us. We received the direction we needed and were able to find the hotel without any more delay. The hotel itself is nestled amongst The Baymont and the Residence Inn behind Northwoods Mall.
Once we arrived we entered the lobby and were greeted by the warm and friendly attendant. The lobby was beautiful. Very inviting, modern, and tastefully decorated. There was a large container of ice water available for weary travelers. We were cheerfully greeted and checked into our room within minutes.
The room itself was very nice. Modern decor and a nice size. The sink was located outside the bathroom which is always a plus for me. Instead of having a closet near the sink there is a counter with the coffee pot and ice bucket. There is a wardrobe located next to the television. The rooms have flat screen televisions and you can also utilize the free wifi from the room.
Although we did not use the pool and hot tub it was very nice. Right outside the pool area there is a lounge area with comfortable outdoor seating. There is also a gazebo area with tables for relaxing or eating outside.
We were on the first floor and had a patio that lead to the outdoor seating and gazebo area. The upper floors had balconies with chairs. It would have been nice to have had chairs on the patio but we were so close to the gazebo that it really didn't matter. We spent the evening outside enjoying the weather.
The beds and pillows were very comfortable and the amenities included Paul Mitchell hair care products. There was also free coffee available in the lobby in the morning.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in and around the Peoria area. We got a great deal on Priceline, were well taken care of, and received a good nights rest.
