Available seating at the buffet area was great, but the slowness of the buffet line casued my wife and I to go to another restaurant up the street. Possibly if we had gotten there around 7:30 AM-8:00 AM, the exoerience might have been better. No complaints about the hotel condition, rate paid, or the cleanliness of the room. All were... More

The back of the hotel has a newly completed walkway along the river where you can feed the ducks and geese or just sit and relax. We had booked a... More
