This is an older hotel and I was suprised by the nice renovation. The lobby looks great and our room had nice decor and furniture. Overall, we had a nice experience, but I wish it was closer to the main part of the river walk. Using the trolley bus, which is just out front, was very easy and you can buy a day pass for it at the front desk. I opted use a combination of street parking and the lot across the street instead of paying to park in the hotel. This made me have to move my car at 8AM, but I thought it was worth the savings. The staff was helpful and I really like that they had a cafe that was open until 10PM. The smoothies from there are really good.
