Nice experience
The hotel benefits from its perfect location, and we've got the river view from the north west corner. It was very clean and comfortable. Easy check in/check out.
Nasrollah, ca4 night family trip
Good 6.0
A few issues but overall a great stay.
We choose this hot as this is where our business conference was being held. Air conditioning in our room and many other travelers rooms was not working. We asked for a fan but it did very little. The elevators were being worked on so during peak periods you could be waiting 15 minutes, we were on the 37th floor. Should have a pillow option, there are only very soft pillows, I prefer a firm pillow to support my neck. No pool or hot tub, I was ok without but our friends would have preferred a hotel with pool. Other than the above the rest of the stay was pleasant. Fantastic location! Beds were comfortable. View was spectacular, we were upgraded to a river view! Food was awesome! Staff were friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.
