“Nice and friendly hotel, good value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

We stayed here over Christmas and again in April to visit family in Peoria. The staff is friendly and the rooms are large, comfortable, and clean at reasonable rates. We never tried the swimming pool as we keep on forgetting our swimming stuff. We love the breakfast and the cosy breakfast area/ lobby. Definitely our favorite hotel in the area.

We ended up here after the Springhill Suites fiasco. The staff tried to accommodate us as well as they could but it was not the vacation experience we had signed up for. The heated pool was very nice. They brought in a rolling cot to make up for the sofabed we were supposed to have at the other property. This location is not easy to find and not walking distance to anything. Altho near the Northwoods Mall, you need a car to get to anything. But we really appreciated the extra effort all the staff made to be customer friendly.

I stayed at the Courtyard recently whilst on business from the UK. It was booked for me so I wasn't sure what to expect. I noticed the warnings on Trip Advisor and the GPS information on the hotels site regarding finding the place and did some homework before I left.
The hotel isn't difficult to find but it is slighlt frustrating to have to drive through the back of the Northwoods Mall car park to get to the hotel every time. It is a shame that the hotel doesn't have a better entrance. That said once you have found it once then it is easy again.
The hotel check in was fine, no problems here and the room allocated was on the second floor. The room was large and comfortable with nothing either out of the ordinary or lacking. It was a typical hotel room. Everything was clean and presentable.
I had a problem on the first night when the smoke alarm battery failed and started to chirp every few minutes. The staff were very apologetic and changed the alarm straight away, crediting my rewards points to say sorry.
The only real let down is the food. By this I don't mean the staff or service just the choice. I found after a few days it was limited and wanted something different. What they did have was tasty. There is a small market in the foyer selling pre packed "plastic" food if you can be bothered to get fresh!
I would recommend the hotel but I would try another before coming back to see what the standard in Peoria is.

Just passing through Peoria on our way back from "snow birding" in Florida. This property has been redone and is quite nice. Love the decor, little bistro, and staff -- even the new Speakman showerheads were a nice touch! Only downside is access to hotel.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Each year, I spend a few nights in Peoria for a music conference. I've stayed in nearly a dozen of Peoria's hotels, always arranged by the Visitors Bureau. I was surprised to be placed at the Courtyard, one of the more expensive options in Peoria. I had no complaints with the room--it was comfortable and clean. The desk staff was cordial. It was on par with many of the other hotels I've stayed at throughout the area--clean and non-descript. I would have been quite pleased with a bill that was $50 less a night especially as there was no breakfast included. If you have an expense account and aren't covering the cost yourself, you're in for a good night's sleep. Otherwise, unless you get a good price through Hotwire or the such, you're better off saving a few bucks on just another room.

This was very nice and convenient to Bradley University. It is really hard to find. My GPS helped but even it got turned around. It is on a Dead-end Road behind the shopping center. The Bar Tender was delightful and mixes good but expensive drinks. We did not eat at the hotel so we can't review the facility. We will use this property when we visit our Grandson at Bradley.
