We were on a weekend get away and wanted to be downtown. The location of the hotel is it's best feature. It is on the river, and if you're lucky you may get a view-we did not. The parking is a bit of a pain on the one way streets below the hotel, but we didn't use it once we parked. The location is walkable to the Third Ward area, which has good food and shops. The check in was easy and the girls were nice, even gave my daughter cookies and a juice box. I asked for cookies for my son in the car and they gave me some. The room was ready and on the fifth floor. The room was big, as it is a "suite". The best thing was the full wall of windows, huge windows! Too bad we had the ugly side of the hotel. There was a kitchen, king bed, and sitting area with pullout bed. The room was pretty clean, but not immaculate. There were things that haven't been wiped down in awhile. There were scraps of leftover wrappers and things and the desk chair looked a bit grimy. My biggest complaint is that I booked the room for my family, which was indicated on the reservation and there wasn't any bedding on the pull out, or even pillows in the room. I found sheets in a bag and made the bed myself and had to call for pillows. They were nice about it, but something was overlooked. Breakfast was included with the room, and it was crowded. There were hot items like french toast, eggs and sausage as well as your standard continental items. the food was mediocre but you can't go wrong with cereal and a banana. The layout was poor and hard to get around. The worst part was the very unhappy worker whom cleared plates and refilled food. She really did not like her job. I even heard her say to a fellow worker, "one hour to go." Like she was being punished working for us people eating breakfast. Not the right industry for her. I felt like overall there were some nice front desk workers and maybe some unhappy or inefficient workers elsewhere. I felt like it was overpriced for the experience. Wish it was a little better, but it served our purpose just fine. I'd stay again if the rate was lower. Over 200 for this was not the best deal.
