From the modern guest room to the freshly made waffles and omelets at...

This hotel is extremely well appointed, and surprisingly cheap for a hotel of this quality. All of the staff have been very helpful. Good food and a great bar. Fantastic location. Meetings rooms are also good. This is the fifth visit for me to the Mark Twain, I would not stay anywhere else in Peoria.
