Our family of five stayed here July 4-6 for a State softball tournament. The hotel is beautiful and but still being renovated outside and is a bit of a walk if you don't want to pay for valet parking. We were able to walk to the riverfront for the amazing fireworks display and not have the hassle of traffic to get back to the hotel. Now for the negative…we were traveling with five people all together and when my husband called the morning we were to stay, we were promised a room with 2 queen beds. The call was specifically to find out if we needed to bring an air mattress for the kids to sleep on. After playing softball all day, we were ready to go back to the hotel and relax and watch the fireworks, only to discover they were out of rooms with two beds and only had a room with 1 King left for us?!?!?! How are we supposed to fit five people in one bed?? The front desk girl was very apologetic but that didn't help our situation at all. Could have been easily taken care of that morning if we hadn't been told we would get a room with 2 beds…we would have brought the air mattress. So we had three to the bed, our 5 year old in a chair and ottoman pushed together, and one on the floor. Also, this hotel is one of those that makes you pay for EVERYTHING…breakfast is too expensive to eat, they charge $9.95 for wi-fi and don't have any vending machines or ice on the floors. All in all, a great hotel for couples maybe but NOT for families…although we were definitely not the only family staying there. At about midnight, I could hear a man screaming obscenities at his baby while the baby cried through the thin walls…it happened twice and just as I was getting ready to call security, the man stormed out and slammed his door. This is a hotel I wouldn't think about bringing my family to ever again.
