“Stunning hotel.. A true gem!”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

I stayed two nights at the Pere Marquette earlier this week and the Marriott quality I have come to expect was everywhere at this beautifully renovated historic property. Gorgeous lobby and bar areas. Staff was incredibly friendly & polite, service and food was top notch. Great location in downtown Peoria but with some incredible scenic and river views to boot. Easily the best hotel between Chicago & Saint Louis, truly world class..

I travel extensively and just had one of the best hotel experiences when I stayed at this recently fully restored historic hotel. Starting from the Marriott staff/bellman at the door (there is 24 hour valet parking), to the warm reception/check-in staff, outstanding restaurant and excellent room service(upgraded to a suite), delicious dinner at the restaurant, to the great service at a business event that was held there, I cannot say enough good things about the place! One other little secret was that the room service was just as outstanding and reasonably priced (I had decided to stay and work in the room because it was so reasonable). Concierge floor lounge was great with a huge selection of snacks throughout the day (recommend upgrading to Concierge level if possible). Comfortable decor with a great blend of historic with a modern classic flair. Big, bright and well lit spaces made it easy to meet and work at many different nooks and crannies throughout the public spaces of the hotel. Will stay there whenever possible! Kudos to the Marriott team for the great service!

Room Tip: Upgrade to the Concierge floors for a small charge to get better views and access to the excellent C...

I travel to L.A. quite often. This place has kind of a Mr. T's vibe about it. Large, hip bar/lobby area that was rocking while I was there. Great tunes, funky cocktails. The decor reminded me of H2O in Chicago. Nothing fancy but it all works. Then I tried the food. Had an Oberon and ordered the Trout Spread and the Calamari. Dynamite. Both of them were so good I had to stop the waitress halfway through and tell her to give the chef kudos. When in Peoria - stay here...

Finally a Marriott in Peoria that you can go to with your eyes closed.
Clean, very new and dependable.

I made a special request to the Patrick (the manager) and as expected from a Marriott hotel, he went out of his way to fulfill that request.

Highly recommended. Just wish it had a swimming pool...

Beautifully restored historic hotel. Fabulous service from every single employee I met. Quality restaurant. I will most certainly stay here again. I would recommend requesting a high-floor. Views from the 11th floor were gorgeous.

If you happen to be in Central Illinois, take the time to spend an evening at the Peoria Marriott Pere Marquette. I never thought this venerable old building would ever return to the status of a place I would stay let alone highly recommend. Marriott has taken a run down dump of a building and returned it to its glory days of the past. The renovation appears to have spared no expense to create an enjoyable modern experience while maintaining a building with a long history.. The bar and restaurants deserve a try and you will not be disappointed. The rooms are bright well furnished and modern. The staff is well trained, friendly and will work to make sure your experience is a great one. This is the only place to stay if you are in the area.
