This is our 4th year in a row going here. This time they had a new front desk manager (Darnell Smith) I gave him my name and he told me they had been expecting us and our rooms were waiting. REALLY made us feel welcome. Our first visit here 4 years ago had a lot of hiccups, but the staff more than made up for it and always invites us to return. I recommend the concierge service, they have a great breakfast, evening appetizer and desert too. Also they have adjoining rooms if you want, (great when we take the kids along) just request them. There's the ferry boat outside the hotel that runs until 11 at night I think, $3.00 round trip per person. We truly love this hotel.
GREAT VIEW!!! Request river view!!!!
There's a bar and restaurant in the lobby, GREAT quality food and service of course.
