Myself and Wife spent a night for a wedding. The room was newly remodel. The layout of the room had all the amenities a person would need. The room did have a musty odor. I think it was from the A/C. My Wife thought is was from the Bed linen. We went for a wedding reception. The shuttle dropped us... More

I regularly travel to Peoria on business and invariably stay at the Mark Twain. Before I first stayed at the hotel, I imagined kind of a rustic, riverboat-style folksy place, and I was very pleasantly surprised to find newly renovated rooms and an excellent dining experience, along with a lobby that retained some of the Mark Twain charm. As I've... More

My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon. It was an amazing experience, the staff was very friendly, rooms clean and comfortable. They even had chocolates and champagne sent up to the room when they found out it was our wedding night, completely free of charge. This is the best hotel in peoria.

My wife and I had a 13 day holiday in Illinois staying at 6 hotels. Our stay for one night in the Mark Twain could not be faulted. We had a room on the 8th Floor overlooking the river. No complaints at all about the room breakfast or facilities.

It was a great experience. Nothing less. Beds were comfy. The view was great. The front desk was very kind and helpful. Breakfast was delicious as well. If only I could have stayed longer! I would return again of given the chance.

Hi kosmosusuki, Thank you for your review. I'm so glad that you had a great experience and enjoyed our beds. I think there's just something about all-white linens that makes for a great sleep, don't you? I hope that when your travels bring you back to the area, you'll come see us again.

Room was small, but we didn't need much more. The bed wasn't the most comfortable, but we're spoiled as we have a tempurpedic mattress at home, so nothing really compares :) Great breakfast, and very friendly staff.
