My wife and I stayed with a group of friends at the Mark Twain over New Year's Eve. We usually go to the Embassy Suites but they significantly raised their rates so we tried the Mark Twain. We were very pleasantly surprised. When I hear of a "boutique" hotel, I think quirky and expensive. Mark Twain was neither: it was... More

Very nice welcome by reception desk and stylish lounge to become of the day. Altough bathroom was not really great the breakfast did make up for this inconvenience. Great place to stay. Reception people helpen me out with lease car problems. Just awesome service!

In Peoria for the first time ever to see a concert (Lissie, look her up she is amazing), stayed at the Mark Twain Hotel for the night and it was remarkable.

I never thought my travels would bring me to Peoria, IL, but I have to say the Mark Twain Hotel was a cute hotel reminiscent of big city boutique hotels I've stayed at. The staff were tremendously friendly, helpful and accommodating. The rooms themselves were very spacious, equipped with free Wifi and various computer hookups, a large desk, fridge, microwave,...

Stayed just one night for business. (First time in Peoria.) Nice downtown area and the hotel has been renovated. Still has that old world feel. Nice TV, fridge, microwave, coffee maker. BIG shower, very nice. They gave 2 free drink tickets, I went to the bar which is part of their restaurant (Two25) - the bartender was engaging and pleasant.... More

We stayed at the Mark Twain for a concert that was held at the Civic Center. The hotel was in a great location right near the river. Great views of that. We would love to visit again when it's warmer so we can check out the river walk. Our room was updated and wonderful. Had a great stay.

I booked a room because the specified hotels for my conference were booked. The weekend service reps are very friendly and accommodating. The restaurant is fine for complimentary breakfast, but a bit expensive for dinner. My room was very comfortable - just wish there was a bigger cable Tv selection.
