Embassy Suites by Hilton East Peoria - Hotel & RiverFront Conf Center
Ranked #1 of 10 Hotels in East Peoria
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 September 2017

If you're looking for a great hotel, with a great location and plenty of amenities in the Peoria, IL area, this is your hotel. The Embassy Suites by Hilton East Peoria hotel sits right on the Southwest bank of the Illinois River, just across the river from downtown Peoria. The North and Northeast side of the hotel offer awesome views of river life and downtown scenery. Looking for some quick eats, well there are plenty of restaurants nearby - Steak n Shake, Logans, Texas Roadhouse, Chilis, Applebees, and Granite City are all within walking distance of this hotel, as well as some great local eateries. The hotel staff are very courteous and accommodating. They offer a breakfast buffet with made to order eggs/omelettes, and they also have happy hours with complimentary drinks and snacks. For those that love their Starbucks coffee, there is also a coffee shop that serves Starbucks beverages. If you need to plan a business meeting or conference, they have a huge conference center located on the grounds as well with plenty of meeting rooms and technology to meet your needs. There is also an outdoor seating area on the North side of the hotel that offers a more scenic view of the river and downtown area. My wife and I have made this our hotel of choice whenever we are in town visiting our son who attends Bradley University, which is located just 5 minutes from the hotel. The rooms are spacious two room suites with updated furniture and appliances, and are kept at a high state of cleanliness. If you're looking for some downtown activities, you are minutes from downtown with just a hop across the bridge and you are right on the River Front where there is plenty of nightlife establishments and local pubs, as well as the Peoria Convention Center, the hockey arena, and the local minor league baseball team. Great hotel with a great location, with great service; you can't beat that with a bat.

Room Tip: North and Northeast rooms offer the best river/downtown views.

The hotel facility is great! The Complimentary happy hour and free breakfast were very good. Rooms were nice and large, and the beds and furniture was comfy. Plenty of outlets. Decent wifi. The short order cook at breakfast was funny and the staff cleaned up tables and picked up empty coffee cups promptly. The conference rooms were fine and plenty of ice water was provided. Cons - the hotel room I had wasn't vacuumed as someone left sequins on the floor that were there both days. Also the food for the banquet was not good. The veggies were uneatable. They looked like they had thawed and been refrozen and thawed again before being cooked. The broccoli was gross. The mashed potatoes were like a rock. So surprising as the breakfast was great.

I recently attended a conference and was most impressed. The location looks over the Illinois River with a view of Peoria across the river. The attached conference center was well used for our meeting and meals. The free breakfast was complete with a waffle stand and the evening free cocktail reception had excellent snacks. Next time you are going to Peoria you would be happy especially with all rooms being the two room suites.

I recommend the Embassy Suites hotel in East Peoria even if your business is in Peoria. The hotel is new and first-class and it is just minutes off of the interstate. You can be in Peoria practically anywhere in 20 minutes unless traffic is bad.
