I followed a recommendation to stay here on a weekend getaway with my wife. If you follow my reviews you know I'm very frugal so if you are frugal like me, this is not the property for you. I considered a Romance package but when the price hit nearly $600 I reconsidered the need for chocolate covered strawberries, champagne, carriage ride and a $100 dinner credit in the restaurant. The first thing you have to wrap your head around after the valet only parking is that you walk in on the fourth floor from the city side. The first floor is on River Street. So the highest floor on the city side is not higher than most of the buildings you are looking at. We reserved a river front room for an extra $30 or so dollars only to discover that the view on the other side of the river is very industrial. If you don't want to spend the extra money, don't get a river side room and just go up to the roof for a drink and enjoy the view from the roof. The burgundy drapes in the room in fromt of the bathroom and sitting room were bordelo-esque. Everything in the room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the corner room with a leather chaise lounge was ralaxing, the Bose radio gave quality sound, the closet with the two $89 bath robes was plenty big, the shower was strong and hot. Disappointing was the lack of a fridge and microwave, and the loudness of the air conditionerwas such that when it was on you had to raise the volume on the TV so loud that it was blasting when the A/C turned off.
Close to $400 ($50 breakfast credit and $25 valet included) is just more than what I am willing to pay for being able to room on River Street. The staff was very professional and willing to help with anything. Bottom line is this is not the place for me but maybe it is for you.
Though I thought when I was told we were upgraded to a corner room that we would have windows on two...
