Great room, with a great breakfast! A bit over priced for the room, but exceptionally nice to stay in an area with summer nightlife. All the staff was very friendly as well and helpful with questions.

It has smaller and clean rooms, a restaurant area with a big variety and a unique DVD library system with good movies. The customer service was good as well. The parking was plentiful and free. I have no criticisms.

My son was recently married in the Peoria area, so the Mark Twain Hotel was the lodging for out of town guests. To save characters, I will simply say that even if I lived in Peoria, I'd stay there! What a wonderfully warm and inviting place. The food is incredible at the buffet, the front desk was pleasant and professional... More

We stayed for one night. Got a good price on Expedia. Check in took like 2 minutes. Were given 4 free drink cards. The drinks were a little weak but still tasty. Bartender was nice. Parking behind the hotel was convenient but fills up quick on a Saturday night. Stayed on the 5th floor with a view of the parking... More

Our stay at the Mark Twain Hotel was top notch. The staff was willing to do anything to make our visit comfortable; they were extremely personable and accommodating. Li at the front desk was there to greet us when we first arrived, and she made sure we had everything we may want for an enjoyable stay. Later the other two... More

Hubby & I stayed here recently specifically to enjoy great Peoria fireworks display. This was our 3rd 4th of July stay at the Mark Twain, and every time has been pleasant. The price is decent and the amenities are nice. The place is on the smaller side (lobby smallish, but beautiful, rooms are clean and fairly updated, but small) but... More

From the airport pickups to checking in, breakfasts to the room, everyone at the hotel made sure that our stay was smooth and pleasant. The place felt like home after a long work day, I'd definitely come again.

I enjoy staying at the Mark Twain due to the boutique feel of the rooms, the on site restaurant and lounge and the downtown location. It's just a few blocks walk to the civic center, restaurants and the riverfront, and it's right next to Interstate access. The hotel is dog friendly, which is a plus for us.

This hotel is smaller and more intimate than the "branded" hotels. The rooms are well equipped, modern and comfortable. The staff is friendly & very welcoming. Parking is in the back of the hotel and the hotel has a shuttle that will help you get around. It is an easy walk of only 2 blocks to the new and exciting... More

My wife and I stayed here the night of our wedding reception. The rooms were very nice clean, large, and modern. The staff was accommodating and quite helpful. Especially, the front desk and the shuttle driver were very accommodating. The only downside I would say was the bar and restaurant staff were a little less than attentive. They seemed a... More
