Loved the room
Great hotel. Friendly staff, clean and spacious rooms. Had a glitch with the electronic key system and had to replace keys to room twice. And the only other thing was continental breakfast needed an attendant to restock as was sparse often and last day was out of coffee. Even with this I’d stay there again.

Great service and a room with a view
I must say that upon arrival we were greeted by George. He was such a pleasant man and very knowledgeable. The room was sufficient as we were just staying overnight. We walked everywhere we went because traffic is a bit much in the area. The balcony overlooked the river and provided a beautiful backdrop.
