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.

Spend a weekend here in late September. This is a nice hotel with easy highway access and close to the riverfront. This is not a family waterpark type of hotel.

After a hot day boating on the Illinois River, it was a wonderful surprise to walk into a cool, beautifully appointed hotel.

“For a quiet room pick one not adjoining another room, away from ice machine (6th & 8th floors). Rooms facing river have street noise.”
