PEORIA — The Peoria Marriott Pere Marquette Hotel will host a public open house from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 4, to celebrate the hotel's new ownership.

The open house event will include a tour of guest rooms, restaurants and event spaces, hors d’oeuvres and specialty cocktails, as well as prizes.

The Washington, D.C.-based INDURE Build-to-Core Fund, the biggest single investor in the 2013 refurbishing of the Pere, bought both the Pere Marquette and the adjacent Marriott Courtyard hotels for $39 million last year after Gary Matthews and his partners, the previous owners, filed for bankruptcy.
