“One pleasant surprise after another”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

Wow! We recently went to Peoria for a show at the Peoria Civic Center. Stay bridge is directly across the street! The room was bright clean and bedding extremely comfortable. Bathroom was enormous! Loved the indoor hot tub and pool! Best feature? Hot free breakfast! Not just muffins and cereal! Real hot breakfast buffet! Yum! Just two blocks from fun local hangouts for a quick bite and a drink! Will look to stay here again!

Thanks for your feedback about Staybridge Suites Peoria! We're so glad you found our location convenient to the Civic Center and that you had a chance to check out some local hangouts - there are lots of them downtown and along the riverfront. Our recent remodel gave us the ability to upgrade our breakfast - so we're thrilled to hear you loved it! Hope to see you again soon!

This hotel is located literally across the street from the Peoria Civic Center. We walked over and attended a Rivermen Hockey game. When the kids got crazy at the end of the 2nd period I was able take them back to the hotel for a swim, while Daddy got the finish enjoying the game. It was the perfect set up for our family. I also want to add that the outdoor courtyard was amazing, places to visit, BBQ, chat around a fire pit and tennis! Hotel staff were helpful, place was clean and breakfast offered many options.

Really happy you enjoyed your stay and you had the chance to experience the courtyard - it's such a great place to hang out - our own little oasis in downtown Peoria. Hockey is done for a while - but we'll be here - so come see us again this summer to check out the great festivals along the riverfront! Thanks for choosing Staybridge Suites Peoria!!!!

My wife and mother-in-law stayed here while my father-in-law was at St Francis hospital. It was very clean, a great very helpful staff, and good breakfast. They also serve a light dinner on week nights. Would stay here again.

Well we had tix for 'Jersey Boys' at the Peoria Civic Center theater and decided to stay over night in Peoria rather than drive home late in the Evening. We looked at several local motels but the Staybridge was recommended by my Sisters as they have been there before. We got there at check in time and parking was a bit confusing as I think there were more cars in the lot than folks staying! Later one of my Sisters told me people use the lot so they don't have to walk far for the PCC. We can see why as the PCC is just across the street!

After sorting that out, we checked in and the Front Desk was very helpful with suggested places to eat and a shortcut into the PCC. This was useful as it got a bit nippy towards show time. Our room was very clean and comfortable and the staff was helpful with a few things needed. Two minor issues was a folding closet door kept falling off it's track, and the dishwasher door spring was rather noisy when opening or closing it. Otherwise everything else worked like it's supposed to.

Wifi was excellent at our location (first floor South end), and with a with a small sofa and comfortable desk chair we were happy with the set up. As it turns out, we ordered delivery and then left for the show rather than going out.

The show was OK but a audio problem caused a delay and we got out later than planned. Because it was a bit late for us the night before, we overslept and missed the included breakfast the next Morning. Ah well.

As we both liked our stay, we want to give this another visit sometime in the future.

My wife and children recently surprised me for my birthday with a trip to Peoria, Illinois to see the traveling "Jersey Boys" musical at the Peoria Civic Center. We decided to stay the night so we would not have the hassle of running up and then just right back down. Instead we booked a room at a hotel we had never stayed in before, the Staybridge Suites right across from the Civic Center. To say we were pleasently surprised is an understatement. The Staybridge is the suites arm of the Holiday Inn chain of hotels. Our room, a two room king bed suite, was very well appointed with all of the standard amenities. It was furnished with two televisions (a must for people with children) and a very nice kitchen setup. The only two caveats to the room - the pillows were not for me and the size of the actual bathroom was cramped. Let me explain. I personally enjoy oversized pillows with my bed. In fact,if I were king of the world for a day I would include the command to change all pillows from standard to body length. Realizing this is not possible I only hope that my hotel will have oversized pillows. Unfortunately, our Staybridge did not even have what I would call standard size pillows; they actually were more of a nuisance that a help for me. But that is just my own personal choice. As for the bathroom I would like to say that the sink and mirror area is great but I think the size of that area has been expanded to the detriment of the actual bathroom that includes the shower and toilet. When using the "facilities" the , how shall I say, seating is cramped since it abutes nearly right up to the shower. It makes using the toilet uncomfortable. The other areas of the hotel stay were excellent. Dan and Lara of the staff did a wonderful job of explaining the hotel and its many amenities; the food and commons area were very good; and the location to the Civic Center and Bradley University could not be beat. Overall, I will be certain to stay there again when visiting Peoria.

Last year when we found out that there was a new Staybridge in Peoria, we decided that we would spend a little more money to stay there during the week of Christmas in 2012. Boy, were we glad we did! The staff was pleasant and always helpful and the hotel is wonderful. We took advantage of the gym and the free laundry. We were bummed to find out the pool was closed during that week. This will be the hotel we stay at every single year we travel to Peoria to visit family.
