PEORIA – The property owners of the Peoria Marriott Pere Marquette and Courtyard Marriott want to bring in new managers.

E.M. Properties has asked the Peoria City Council to transfer operation duties of the two hotels from Marriott International to First Hospitality Group.

No action was taken, but the council had a lengthy discussion on the transfer Tuesday night.

Many council members wonder why property owners want to switch management, and if there are any repercussions for the city.

According to the city, the hotels will continue to keep the Marriott and Courtyard Marriott brands.

The transfer will come back to council in two weeks.
