We were guests at a wedding and stayed at The Governor, as all the reception and next morning brunch activities were here. We were bumped from the 2nd leg of our flight and the hotel was very gracious about canceling our first night, since we could not arrive until late the next morning. We only had to wait for 15 minutes before the room was ready for us to check in and they also accepted my husband's suit for pressing on such short notice and after their posted deadline. All of the employees were very helpful and courteous, although some of the information was incorrect (Jake's Crawfish restaurant IS open for lunch on Saturdays, and taking MAX back to the airport would have been a nightmare due to some problems on the steel bridge), but their recommendation of South Park restaurant was outstanding. Our room was delightful! We were able to get the "quiet side" of the building (thanks to other reviews here). Bathroom was spacious and well lighted, the bed and pillows were very comfortable. We even had a gas log fireplace and comfortable couch. And the room was spotless. Very, very clean. The rooms for the wedding activities were beautiful and the food was delicious. I've never had filet mignon at a banquet that wasn't overcooked and tough as boiled owl, but this one was perfect!! I think Jake's Grill caters the hotel's banquet food. (??) If I have any complaint at all, it's that the lighting around the bathroom sink really heats the room up. The air conditioning could only be turned down to 68, which is a bit warm for us for sleeping, but temps when we were there ran between mid 50's to mid 70's, so we could open the windows and be comfortable. And the location's hard to beat. We'll definitely stay there again.
