From the minute I was greeted at the front desk by a very friendly desk clerk, to being greeted by maintenance and cleaning people as I walked down the hall, until I checked out, this was a very comfortable hotel to stay in. The lobby is lovely. My room overlooked the river, and when I opened the curtain, a Cooper's hawk was sitting in the tree just outside the window...a nice piece of nature in the city. The room was comfortable, though not elaborate. The bathroom was small but perfectly adequate. TV was not a high def flat screen, but it worked well. Internet service worked great. The bed was very comfortable. The location was a ways from the big action downtown and on the main part of the Riverwalk, but this extension portion is wonderful for a pleasant walk through the beautiful landscaping along the shoreline. I'd like to come back to try out the beautiful pool area. I think it will be a fun place when it's warmer.
