Our Story

Downtown Peoria's Premier Boutique Hotel

Built in 1967, the building now known as the Mark Twain Hotel has operated under several names and franchises. In 1990, the building was purchased by the former mayor of Peoria and has undergone several massive renovations, transforming the once commonplace chain motel into Peoria's Premier Boutique Hotel. This metamorphosis has produced an attitude and atmosphere that consistently surprises and delights guests seeking a getaway in Downtown Peoria. Our location is ideal for both business and entertainment. Our never-ending list of amenities provides the feeling of comfort and royalty.

This is the Mark Twain Hotel and yes, you are still in Peoria.

Guests are greeted by a style that is hip, yet warm and comfortable, beginning with the moment you walk in – you can even smell it in the atmosphere. Check-in is friendly and quick. Sink into the soft leather chairs, cozy up to the custom-built oak fireplace and relax to the sounds of upbeat music and friendly conversation. Open up your laptop, reader or tablet - wireless internet access is always complimentary to Mark Twain Hotel guests. Or sip on a complimentary Leaves 'N Beans Coffee or cocoa as you unwind in the library located in the hotel lobby.
