The hotel was a nice place to stop for the night while waiting to catch the AMTRAK north. It was however a challenge to get across the river on the weekend. The Skyway shuts down, no trolley service, and the river taxi may not run on time (11:00 in a.m.-maybe). So, we were "trapped" on our side of the river w/not much to do. We did walk to the riverfront and excitedly saw dolphins swimming downstream while waiting for the river taxi which was running late. We found FiFi's consignment shop to walk through - great place if you're looking for a wedding gown at a bargain. And, did enjoy sitting at the pool. Breakfast was complementary and enjoyed. And we did visit the 200 year old Treaty Tree down the road. We also found that the Science Museum was not too far away though no-one mentioned this when we asked if there was anything to do on our side of the river. The rooms were clean and well kept. Staff was customer friendly and helpful with suggestions, accommodated our late check out request and held our luggage until we were ready to leave.
