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

I've stayed here several times when coming to Peoria. I've stayed at several different hotels in the area, but will choose the Mark Twain for all future visits to town. Not only are the staff friendly and very accommodating, but your stay includes free drink coupons and I also received a voucher for an appetizer. Bath & Body Works toiletries,... More

We visit family 2 or more times a year and always stay at Mark Twain. It's conveniently located to downtown and the van takes us to the Civic Center for the shows. So easy. The breakfast in the morning is worth coming for all by itself. We love the omelets. Coffee in the library, a nightcap before bed, spa robes... More
