My husband and I flew into Peoria for a concert at The Landing and stayed here. It was perfect walking distance from the Riverfront, the restaurant we ate at for the night, and the venue. Only 4 blocks away. We were greeted immediately by very friendly bellhops and front desk staff. All funny, great personalities, and exceptional customer service skills. The hotel is very well kept, very clean, and has that nice luxury feel to it.
Our room was also very clean and the king bed was SUPER comfortable. The only thing about the bathrooms in the room that I would note for other guests who may be bunking with someone other than their spouse or family, is the bathroom door does not shut all the way like a regular bathroom door, it is a sliding one from side to side and can literally be lifted away from the wall and...oops...there goes your privacy (if that is something of importance to you). The big shower head was very nice and pumped out enough pressure for its size (always a plus for someone with a lot of hair!)
When we got back from the concert, we wanted to have another drink or two and the bartender was kind enough to stay open for a few minutes more to serve us as he was just about finished closing up shop when we strolled in. We really appreciated that!
The buffet breakfast was delicious and the staff was great there as well. However, it was a bit overpriced in my opinion for what you got. $15 a person for a breakfast of some scrambled eggs, bacon, and a pastry.
Upon our departure, instead of having to hail a cab, the bellhop at the front offered to take us to the airport in the hotel shuttle for free. Very, very nice offer and saved us $20!
Would definitely recommend this hotel to anybody else who is traveling to Peoria for business or pleasure. The staff takes care of you, it's clean and comfy (and also very quiet), and worth paying the extra dollars after viewing what some of our other overnight accommodations could have been in the area!
