Ok, I loved the Riverview! The history alone was exciting to me.
Now, while I understand the peeling wallpaper and the chipped window frames, to me it's part of the charm, I have to agree with the others that the cleaning could be better. The sheets and towels were clean and carpets free of visible dirt. I did read ahead of time of the smoke smell so carried room freshner with me. Any of you who get room #17 can thank me later.
The cleaning of the hallways and stairs weren't the best and cobwebs were noticable in many corners.
You can feel the history of this place where ever you go. There is a balcony that overlooks the main street with chairs and tables. It was neat to come out and watch the goings on. We had no problems with noise. No there is no a/c in the lobby or any common area, they were just added to the rooms. Since I didn't spend much time there I didn't care. The hosts were very friendly and helpful in anything we needed.
If I were spending $150.00 per night I might have a problem with some of these things, but to stay in a part of history for $70.00 per night??? I'd come again in a heartbeat!
