This was our third stay in the past five years. This locally-owned hotel commands a scenic view of the Illinois river. Our dinner and two full breakfasts were first-rate. A full breakfast and two free drink tickets each night per guest plus free parking make this a bargain. We enjoyed the clean and safe walking and bike path along the... More

Upon arrival it was booked through hotels.com, I always prepay and only use the mobile app so I do not get a print out.

The Mark Twain Hotel is a 70s hotel that is nicely remodeled hotel with character, the good kind. The lobby could be mistaken for a library. Our room had a nice view of the river and bridge over the Illinois river. They Included a couple of drinks and a breakfast that would have set me back $20. at places I... More

What a great find on a business trip to Peoria! Rooms are boutique style, so cool. I had a 7th floor room with an amazing view of the river and bridge. Great window view and small surprises (great window shades-light filtering or blackened), ironing board in the wall, so cool, shower/bath area perfect. I could go on... Super friendly staff,...

Reasonably nice hotel and convenient for Waterfront. However having the fire alarm go off twice after midnight without even an apology isn't what you would expect from the hospitality business - noise of the air conditioning didn't help either.

Comfortable, clean, with a nice view of the bridge and Illinois river. Reasonable price for a short notice reservation and single night stay. Free parking in a lot in the back seemed safe enough. Will definitely stay here again. The in-hotel restaurant was a bit pricey for dinner, or at least for the quality of the meals, but the breakfast... More

we have been loyal costumers- yearly trips since 2009, for our family reunion. Being able to take our small dog with us was one of the incentives. We don't mind paying a pet fee, and our dog never created any problems. Management wouldn't work with us in providing individualized service. T
