Full Service Marriott Hotel Approved

The City Council approved the Full Service Marriott Hotel last night.  The Public Private Partnership between the City of Peoria and EM Properties Ltd will see the redevelopment of the historic Pere Marquette Hotel into a 475 to 500 room hotel. A new 200 plus room tower will be built, and the Pere rehabbed to Marriott standards. An elevated connector will be built to the Civic Center.

This improvement will enable the City of Peoria to recapture the "Queen City" status of being the conference and convention center for the middle of Illinois. This will be the largest hotel south of Chicago in Illinois, connected to the largest Convention Center.
