I would agree with a previous reviewer that it was both the most expensive and the worst hotel that we stayed in during a three week trip to the USA, however the location is great.
We arrived in the afternoon, check in was easy, our first floor river view room didn't have a lift so we had to carry our bags up the stairs. We went out to the park immediately and when we retuned discovered the rooms were extremely hot as the hotel had not left the air conditioning on. I suppose they are trying to be green and not waste energy but the room was uncomfortable and it was the only hotel where we had this problem.
The room itself though dated was clean, the bathroom had seen better days, and the lighting was extremely dim, even with all the lights on it was hard to see to read in the room. There was a charge for internet access.
The launderette was useful, although the washing did need two lots of drying, it was a good opportunity to clean some clothes.
We had dinner in the restaurant, the service was fine but the food was very average, there was a fresh salad bar which was quite nice. Breakfast was a buffet which wasn't great I think by the time we arrived about 9am a lot of the food had been keeping warm for some time.
