My friend and I stayed at this hotel for two nights in early June. Our room was on the 8th floor and we had a wonderful view of the Illinois river (and eastward). The beds were very comfortable with good linens. We did not use the refrigerator or the microwave The rates included two free glasses of wine at the... More

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.

Good Location near the riverside walk. Not what I would class as a boutique hotel but very pleasant stay all the same. No bath but good powerful shower. Nice touch getting free drinks vouchers but by the time we arrived at six, went for a wander round the area and returned, the bar was shut at 9pm. Parking was tricky... More

Maizedaisy, Thank you for staying with us at the Mark Twain Hotel.

With all the sites to see we believe a great breakfast is the key to a good... More

Seriously -- it was the nice hospitality touches and lack of nickel-and-diming that contributed to making mine a pleasant stay. The rooms are fine, if on the small side (I didn't notice the thin walls other guests complained about). The staff is great, pleasant and falling all over themselves to help guests out, overboard apologetic for any problems ("no, really,... More

I came into town for a graduation party and needed a place to stay overnight. The view of the bridge at night is beautiful and convenient to the Riverwalk, which was great to take a morning run. The front desk was cordial and if I didn't have plans I would have taken advantage of the free drink tickets and the... More

We've stayed at this hotel previously and been pleased. I'm starting out with a disappointment, but hang in there. We didn't realize in previous visits that we would hear the train blow its horn several times throughout the night. The walls and windows seem to be thin here. We were disappointed to be disturbed by other guests in their rooms... More

My wife and i were looking a nice hotel on the riverfront for our stay before we flew out for Vegas. This hotel was exactly what we were looking for and would stay here again for sure. The staff was very friendly and breakfast in the morning was very good

We were in town for Rodney Carrington and chose this hotel for the location. Our room was very nice with a vanity area for hair and makeup! Price was a little expensive but there were 2 concerts in town so its expected! Breakfast was absolutely delicious!!
