My wife and I stayed one night. The staff was helpful and efficient. The facility was clean with one exception. Housekeeping apparently forgot to finish cleaning our bathtub, there was still hair in it. Otherwise things were very good. The location is nice. We walked over to the river walk. Several good places to eat close by. Except for the... More

This was the second time I stayed in this hotel, a couple things I did notice on this trip was 1) The hotel’s restaurant changed names, it’s no longer a Houlihan’s, its "non-chain" name. I used the room service, it was very good. 2) The trains that pass in the distance no longer blow their horns for the local crossings.... More

We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. Regarding the train noises, it's been a couple of years now and getting the government to finally pass legislation for the quiet zone was a task and a great accomplishment.

I had pipes that burst from cold weather and needed accomodations for a few nights until repairs could be made. The staff was very friendly and professional. They quickly got me checked in and the room was spotless. Although they don't offer free breakfast there were some fairly reasonable specials at the restaurant located inside. Free coffee/snack bars were located... More

I was surprised reading older reviews about this property because my stay was excellent. I think they must have done some serious renovating and customer service reworking in the last year or so because everything was wonderful. Becca checked me in late at night and was still very chipper and friendly. I don't remember the names of the other girls... More

This was a lovely older hotel. It was clean and comfortable and even though we arrived very late we felt safe and secure. Breakfast in the restaurant was good and reasonably priced. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The river view is compromised by power stations and elevated highways but it is still there.

Gorgeous lobby area. Might be nice for conferences and meetings, but for an overnight just passing thru stay, seemed rather expensive for only average guest room.
