Checked in yesterday for a four night stay. Very courteous staff. Wilma at reception is awesome. Delicious breakfast, fresh, and hot. Room was very clean with an awesome view of the Illinois river and lake. This hotel lives up to the expectation.

My wife and I stayed here as part of our riverboat experience. What a nicely renovated hotel. The person or persons that did the design work are to be commended. This hotel is a nice blend of new modern and old world brick. The breakfast needs to take a back seat to no one, freshly made food was the order... More

Stayed one night. The room was very small even though I booked the King deluxe? We didn't use the shower because there was hair on the shower wall. Went to get coffee in the lobby and it was locked at the time. Suppose to be open at 10:00 A.M. When we checked out it was 11:00 and it was still... More

We stayed here for one night on our way West and really enjoyed the experience. The five star aspects are the location near the river, the great restaurant/bar, the friendly front desk staff, and all the lagniappes. The price was very low and includes free breakfast and free drinks at the bar or restaurant. The hotel is next door to... More

The Mark Twain Hotel is an independent, boutique, hotel in Downtown Peoria. The first impression one gets is having walked into someone's private library in their rustic home. There is a picture of Mark Twain gracing the wall, a desk and several stuffed leather chairs, lots of books on the shelves and a seating area opposite the library with more... More

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
