After two days camping in the mud at a nearby music festival, the Wingate Peoria felt like a 5 star hotel to us. We booked an accessible room and I'd called a few days ahead of our stay to confirm they would hold a wheelchair accessible room for our very late arrival. For the most part, the room served our needs. The bed was very tall however and my friend was unable to transfer from her wheelchair into bed. I called the front desk and the night manager Omar arrived promptly to help us with the transfer and we were very appreciateve of his assistance. This was my first experience traveling with someone with a disability, and "accessible" regarding a hotel room is clearly subjective. Not only was the bed too high to transfer out of a wheelchair, the shower was not in any way accessible, the temperature control panel was too high for my friend to reach, the van accessible parking spots were not really wide enough for our van ramp.
Aside from the accessibility issues, the property was as I would have expected for the price point. Pillows were lumpy and not to our liking but the bed and bedding were fine. Coffee and breakfast options were better than expected. Our room and the public areas were spotlessly clean despite the many groups of muddy concert goers who had arrived seeking refuge from heavy storms; kudos to the staff at the Windham Peoria for going the extra mile to serve their guests this Memorial Day weekend.
