My boyfriend and I spent 4 nights at this hotel - we did not have a river view room, which would have been nicer. The hotel has walking trails directly behind it on the river. Parking is valet only, but the valet guys (particularly Zach) were very helpful with suggestions and directions. The room itself is very nice, although our toilet would sometimes run after flushing. The problem seemed to disappear if you flushed again. The bathroom was very spacious. The bed was very comfortable, although on the 3rd night, we noticed they switched our king-size pillows for standard-size. I would agree with another reviewer that outlets are not convenient for charging electronics...you do have to crawl on the floor under the desk to access them, or, I also pulled my nightstand away from the wall to gain access to an outlet. The TV in the room was the old box-style, not a flat screen, which was kind of surprising as the decor of the hotel seems fairly updated and modern. The hotels offers a continental breakfast daily consisting of yogurt, fruit (apples & bananas), typically 2 types of muffins, or a muffin and some type of sweet bread, and 3 types of cereal (raisin bran, cheerios and granola), orange juice and coffee. The granola (which appears to be homemade) is outstanding. I could eat that stuff every day. Probably the best granola I've ever had. What was extra nice is that the continental breakfast is served on each floor near the elevator so you never have to leave your floor, which is great because I don't look so hot before I have my morning shower. The rate at the hotel was very reasonable, but again, we did not have a river view. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. I would definitely stay here again.
