We live about a little over an hour from Peoria in the Quad Cities area and decided to take a quick weekend getaway to Peoria for some new sights and activities. We checked into the Mark Twain Hotel on Friday night and stayed through Sunday. We had an excellent experience with the hotel and the entire Peoria area. Upon checking... More

Great place to stay. Comfortable beds and both soft and firm pillows. Outstanding breakfast and a free drink when you arrive. The adjoining restaurant has very good food. This hotel is an easy 3 block walk to the river front where other restaurants can be found. Free concerts on the river front during some weekends

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who is in the Peoria area. Staff was great, and very friendly. My wife and received 4 free drink vouchers for the steakhouse located at the hotel, so that was right on point. And it's in the perfect location. A 5 minute walk to the river and all the great activities the... More

Traveling during a torrential thunderstorm, we had no reservations, and I found this by googling what's close. We were welcomed without reservations and given free drinks at the bar. This hotel is very unusual, much better than a chain, and with real personality. We absolutely love it. More than reasonable prices, fantastic waterfront view, drinks, breakfast.....what more is there? Thanks... More

I stayed at this hotel for business. It has a wonderful restaurant and bar, staff at the hotel were courteous and polite. Room was clean and well stocked. I had a great river view. Breakfast was complimentary and there was more than your average cereal. Made to order waffles and omelettes as well as bacon, sausage, and other breakfast fare.... More

Great Hotel, awesome breakfast, clean close to the civic center, great little farmers market on Saturday morning just 3 blocks away. Walking distance to caterpillar, friendly staff. Just perfect. Comfortable beds, great bathroom, free drink ticket expired the night you arrive, so use or loose on this one.

Spent 4 nights there, 7th floor, facing back. It's like your sleeping on the motorway! There is no sound insulation at all. Air conditioning very noisy and fan in bathroom even louder. So if you have a very deep sleep and don't mind a noisy night the hotel is ok. Breakfast is ok, wifi is very good I will however... More

Frederic I, I am sorry to hear that you were disturbed by the ambient noise associated with our downtown location. I know that some people can be more sensitive to local or unfamiliar noises which make it difficult to sleep away from the comfort of your own home. Perhaps a room located closer to the ground floor in the back... More

Comfortable, clean, friendly staff! Breakfast was awesome! Very accommodating, walking distance from the civic center. Close to the river museum and caterpillar welcome center. River walk and a cool weekend farmers market just a few blocks away. No pool and "fitness room" nothing to write home about.

Great Value, wonderful breakfast included, whatever you want, Belgian waffles, omelettes, eggs, ham, bacon, yogurt, fruit, the works. Modern rooms with walk in showers, very, very comfortable. Complimentary cocktails. Easy to find with plenty of free parking. A great place to stay, moderately priced.
