We stayed for three nights. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Every staff member that we ran into, weather a maintenance person or a front desk clerk greeted us. The front desk had easy to follow directions to every attraction and restaurant that we wanted to see as well as a shuttle to downtown.
The breakfast that they served was a great benefit and the food was very good.
The room was very clean and well stocked. We used our "no service today" sign for our whole stay and still had plenty of supplies. The beds were very comfortable as the room temperature was easy to control.
The kids had a great time in the pool, though the crowd at the pool made me a little uncomfortable with the kids. It seemed as though everyone was smoking, and drinking a little too much. The pool crowd was building a pyramid of beer cans along the side of the pool. Though a little loud, there was no trouble or I would have contacted the staff.
Don't let the name of the hotel fool you......it is not downtown, though close by and they offer a shuttle in the evenings. And though it is near the river, you can't see it from the hotel...but I knew that prior to going, because I read a trip advisor review prior to going.
The hotel is also not far from the airport and there are tons of attractions nearby.
