I booked a room because the specified hotels for my conference were booked. The weekend service reps are very friendly and accommodating. The restaurant is fine for complimentary breakfast, but a bit expensive for dinner. My room was very comfortable - just wish there was a bigger cable Tv selection.

I almost feel redundant writing another good review for the Mark Twain as there are so many here already, but what an attractive boutique hotel with its welcoming "library" lobby, cute brick and wood bar and dining room - complete with two free drink tickets per person when you check in and delicious dinner food. Then a great breakfast buffet...

Decided to stay at this hotel for convenience of walking to Cat Visitors Center and to the riverfront.

My husband and I were recently driving to Purdue University and stopped for the night at this hotel. We did think the nightly rate was a bit high but then we were informed that this rate included two buffet breakfasts and four drink tickets. After a brief discussion, we decided we would stay at this location. Austin checked us in...

A clean but very tiny room. Made me rethink the idea of downsizing in the future. Hopefully you are not very tall, the showerhead in our room was very low. Location was perfect for a wedding reception at The Packard next door. A definite plus are the drink coupons and free breakfast.

Bendi523, Thank you for sharing your experiences at the Twain! Although we are a modern gem we are an old building and are therefore have some spatial limitations. If you are looking for a little larger room I would recommend one of our Deluxe Rooms on the top 2 floors as they have a larger footprint than either the Century...

I used to be biased because my wife used to work at the Twain. Even after leaving I still say its the nicest hotel in Peoria. Working travelers or couple will love the boutique hotel. The restaurant is great and the breakfast buffet is good as well. We love it when we can have an over-nighter for a wedding in...

We enjoyed our stay. The room was nice, but a little smaller than expected. The complimentary drinks and breakfast were a fantastic bonus! Our only disappointment was when we got back and turned the heat up in our room, and the room fill with smoke and smelled of burnt plastic. The hotel staff was quick to move us to another...

So many pluses to this place that I'm overlooking any negatives and will definitely stay here again. The rooms are definitely small but it's not like I was sitting in the room all night, not when the bar and restaurant are so good and I received 2 complimentary drink tickets. The bed was comfy and the desk is just a...

Stayed for my sister's wedding. Rooms were really nice. Staff was unbelievably friendly. Restaurant, bar, and other amenities were very nice. Breakfast was delicious! They even gave us tickets for two free drinks (our choice, including cocktails) daily. Highly recommend!

This was a cute hotel with nice accomodations. The restaurant and bar area was nice as well. The food was on par with boutique hotels in this price range. It was rainy the day we were there, but the view of the bridge and water was still pretty. We'd come back again.
