I had the pleasure of staying at the Marriott Hotel in Normal. I was in town performing at the Limelight Peoria. When I checked in I was a little concerned by the fact the young gal was not being very accommodating about providing a late check-out for my final day. I was scheduled to do a very early morning appearance...

I am glad Joe was able to jump in and give the service we are known for. I'm sure it was a great teaching moment for the new associate as well. Joe sets a high standard of service for all on the team to try and match. Sincerely, Jeff P General Manager

Spent two-days in meetings and have to say the food was the best meeting food I've ever had. They had great options like smoothies for breakfast, make your own snack mix for breaks, etc. Was very impressed. This hotel stands out in decor and atmosphere for sure!!

I stayed there several times including several months in 2010. The staff is very good and being a Gold member I had access to the concierge lounge. It is on the top floor and has a nice view of the city. The staff is very good and makes sure you are comfortable. One nice thing is that the hotel is...

Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences from your past stays. You highlighted a few of the items that make us so unique in Bloomington Normal. No other hotel has a concierge lounge or covered parking and no one has a staff quite like ours. Finally our restaurant has a new menu featuring fare from many local...

The hotel was very nice, the room was very nice. The employee that handled our reservation when we arrived left something to be desired. When I made the reservation on the phone, they kindly upgraded us to the concierge level, and also told us that there was a complimentary breakfast which was great. (The service at the restaurant was pretty...

This hotel is so convenient to Illinois State University. It is our hotel-of-choice when we visit our daughter. The rooms are very comfortable. Nicely appointed, clean, spacious.

Well, the sheets on my bed smelled like that. As did the rest of the bedding: pillows, bedcover, etc. My request for fresh linens was honored with, guess what? Slightly less bad smelling linens. I can't remember anything else about the hotel when the sheets smell like oily, unwashed hair. :(.

Room - great! Well laid, comfy bed, big bathroom but the products are a little on the musky scented side, so not ideal for some ladies. The closet is big with lots of hangers.

I've stayed here several times and attended multiple conferences as well. The hotel staff is always incredibly nice and accommodating - I've never experienced the slightest problem while staying here. The event spaces are enormous and very well maintained, making even boring conferences a pleasant experience.
