Welcome to Petersen Hotels

Mark Petersen, owner, and CEO of the Petersen Companies, regularly drove through the Grand Prairie area and found himself thinking someone should build a hotel in the area soon. Month’s passed and there was never a word about a hotel development in the area. After careful consideration, Mark determined he would follow his instincts, and in late 2007, Petersen Hotels opened its first hotel properties. Today, Petersen Hotels has grown to include seven properties in Central Illinois. Each hotel is dedicated to surpassing all guests’ expectations of comfort, convenience, and quality by providing outstanding properties and superior customer service to meet the needs of every traveler.

The staff at the Candlewood Suites were very accommodating. Everyone greeted me by name and talked like a friend. The beds are comfortable and the room was the cleanest I have ever seen in a hotel. Not to mention it was great having a kitchen. This hotel offers fantastic service with a caring staff; it felt like home.
