We stayed here July 4 - 6, 2014 in river front room number 108. Room was spacious and clean, bathroom nice size with plenty countertop space, large tub/shower. The complimentary hot buffet breakfast was well stocked and provided nice variety (yogurt, fresh fruit cups, waffles, eggs, sausage, biscuit/gravy, cereal...). Never heard anyone complain.
The only complaint we have is directed at the trolley service / lack of traffic management, which has nothing to do with the hotel. Advice for anyone visiting during the 4th of July and staying on Parkway, beware of overcrowded trollies and know that they will NOT let you off anywhere but a designated trolley stop. We were held hostage for 1+ hour in standstill traffic 2 blocks from the trolley stop. One passenger ended up sick, running through the standing room only trolley...to end up on the sidewalk throwing up. It was VERY infuriating. For such a large event you would expect law enforcement to be involved in keeping traffic flowing.
Other than the trolley experience everything was good. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
