I booked the night before on-line. Thanks to other tripadvisor reviewers, I asked for and received a third-floor, river-view room! The view of the bridge crossing the Mississippi into Louisiana and the river itself is wonderful. Tonight (July 4th) I will be able to watch the fireworks over the river from my room!
My $99 room is a large, well-appointed suite. I called down and extended my stay within minutes. There are plenty of plugs on above and beneath the desk (a pet peeve of mine). There is a small refrigerator and microwave. The Carrier AC is quiet and efficient.
For dinner I ate the pan-seared Hereford filet mignon with Bacon Bearnaise, Mustard Greens and Garlic Potato Cake for $26. It was the best meal I have had since I hit the road two weeks ago (and not the most expensive). High quality steak, perfectly medium rare. The Bearnaise was amazingly seasoned. The greens were sauteed lightly, probably in bacon fat. The house Merlot is excellent.
The complimentary breakfast was plated, freshly prepared fluffy scrambled eggs, fluffy grits, bacon, sausage and biscuit. I would have been pleased if I had paid $10 for it. Tip is not included, so I did leave $2.
The service at both meals was excellent. The views from the dining room are beautiful. The dining room is well appointed and tasteful. There are cloth napkins and tablecloths even at breakfast!
I was a bit concerned knowing this was formerly a casino, but this is a family friendly hotel. There are families with small children enjoying the holiday at the pool. There is a bar serving poolside.
This is very close to the historic downtown, house museums or casinos. Although it is across highway 425, you can reach any of these attractions in 2-5 minutes.
