I'm surprised by all of the poor reviews here. My wife and I just stayed for one night on a spur-of-the-moment getaway, and we found the staff to be efficient and extremely helpful and friendly, the room comfortable, and the location ideal. We paid $132 for a room with a beautiful view overlooking the river, and you are just steps from the Riverwalk and a block from the attractive downtown with plenty of good places to explore and eat.
The room itself was on the small side, but it was in good shape, the bed was very comfortable, and the view was wonderful. I could nitpick about a couple of things: It took several minutes to get really hot water flowing in the shower, and they charge $9 for self parking in what on our visit was an almost empty and large parking lot.
But overall it's a comfortable hotel, a great location, and it seems to me reasonably priced compared to similar hotels in similar cities. I'll stay again.
