“A++++ location, customer satisfaction, cleanliness, staff assistance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011

We were greeted warmly upon entering the hotel lobby and assured that everything we requested was attended to for our overnight stay at the Embassy Suites East Peoria, Il property.

Celebrating our quadriplegic son's birthday with a quick trip from the Chicago area to see "Wicked" on tour at the Peoria Civic Center and also found a concert to attend the same weekend at the Peoria Civic Center Arena. Embassy Suites is located a quick 5 minute drive across the bridge. SO EASY to navigate around the Peoria area from ES (Embassy Suites)!

Embassy Suites made every accommodation we required traveling with a special needs family member. Communication prior to our arrival made it easy for medical equipment to be delivered and ready in our room upon arrival. ES staffers even had their maintenance crew raise the bed in the ADA compliant room to enable use of equipment during our stay, so when I say ES staff made every accommodation, I really, really mean it!

We had pre-ordered room service beverages, cheese & fruit assortment and sandwiches for our arrival. Everything was in our suite upon arrival and beautifully arranged and very tasty! I particularly enjoyed the cheese assortment with chutney on crackers. My son and husband preferred the steak and blue cheese salad and the panini w/fresh mozz & basil.

Before heading out to our evening concert, we enjoyed a glass of wine and snacks at the ES managers evening reception. I really wasn't expecting much in a house wine and was pleasantly surprised at the nice smooth cabernet sauvignon that was served!

An impressive breakfast is served in the atrium every morning. ES serves a wide selection of breakfast choices. Made to order omelettes, fresh made waffles and pancakes are available at the chefs station. The buffet offered fresh cut melons, pineapple, apples, oranges, bananas, yogurt, granola, bacon, sausage, fried potatos, biscuits n gravy, dry cereal assortment, oatmeal and more.

The suites are spacious and clean! A mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, wet sink are provided in the sitting area with a desk & extra chairs and LCD TV adjacent to the sofa sleeper and side chair. The bedroom area has an additional TV and desk work space.The toiletry amenities are Crabtree & Evelyn product.

Both rooms in the Executive Suite boasted a great river view across from Peoria city limits. We enjoyed the city lights reflecting off the river at night and during the day we watched local canoe-er's as well as recreational boaters and even a river barge.

The ADA room had river views from the sleeping area but not from the sitting/living room area. The floor space was planned well for wheelchair users and this suite had a roll in shower that gave plenty of clear access to transfer from chair to shower with assistance of a lift and health care attendant that we traveled with. Sorry! I didn't think to take pictures of the ADA shower area! Which could be useful to other wheelchair travelers.. whoops! my bad! next time I'll be more aware.

All in all, we're extremely pleased with the Embassy Suites location, service and accommodations. This will definitely be our choice of property when we return for any events in Peoria/East Peoria in the future!

Room Tip: Pay the extra or if you have upgrades... definitely book a corner Executive Suite. The extra room en...

This truly is a beautiful hotel. The property is located right on the water and the views are beautiful. The hotel is very clean and as with all Embassy Suites the rooms have plenty of room. Located just across the river from the city it was very safe and it was easy to get to the other side via the bridge located right near the hotel. The hotel offers free made to order breakfast which was wonderful. While the price for the room was a little more compared to the hotels across the river when you figure in the cost of breakfast there really is no difference. Plenty of dinning options within in waking distance or a short drive.

Make the trip across the river from downtown Peoria and enjoy a river view with the sun rising over the city. This hotel is doing everything right, from the desk people to the decor to the quiet central heating and cooling. Perhaps I'll take a tiny point off for the slippery comforter cover that doesn't stay in place very well. Tasty breakfast options with lots of seating and plentiful parking made life easy. We were going to family weekend at Knox College, 40 miles up I-74 in Galesburg and wound up staying in Peoria due to a sold out weekend in Galesburg. Since this hotel is connect to the convention center, numerous restaurants surround the property and highway access is easy.

Room Tip: Go for the river view rooms looking toward downtown Peoria.

We (2 adults, 2 kids) stayed here while my husband was in Peoria for business. While the city isn't the greatest (not much to do with little kids), the hotel was great. We loved that the hotel was quiet, due to most of the guests being business travelers. The rooms are spacious and updated. The kids used the pool and both times we were the only people in it! The breakfast was great and not crowded after the business crowd left, as well as the nightly managers reception which the kids loved. The staff we met were very friendly and enjoyed talking to our kids. If we go back to Peoria, this is the only hotel we would stay in!

I really liked this property. I have stayed at the Mark Twain hotel several times for work but every time I stayed There I had a different experience. Some of the rooms are updated but regardless of it they all smell funky.
The embassy suites is new and very clean. Will definitely stay here moving forward. A bit pricey but worth it for the cleanliness.

You get the usual perks expected from an Embassy Suite; Managers reception and breakfast, but this hotel goes the extra mile. They will take you across the river into Peoria where you can enjoy the night life and even take in a minor league baseball game. They pick you up afterwords. Was 2008 Emabssy Suite Hotel of the Year. Very clean and staff was supurb.

Room Tip: Ask for river view
