It's an older hotel that is working on its re-introduction to the riverwalk and if looks like it stepped out of the fifties, the decor is funky and eclectic. Its part of the Museum reach end which is about 7 miles by water taxi from the main riverwalk. The hotel was quiet but it was during the week. My only complaint is the bathroom height of the toilets are too low, they look like children's toilets at a elementary school. The bathroom is too small for more than 1 person and the shower fixtures really need to be cleaned of their lime deposits. The pool was nice and the food was fair. There is a on site bar and plenty of seating for eating, drinking and just relaxing. The water taxi and the trolley will pick you up in front of the hotel so that is a plus. Soon this area will be a major art district and the hotels will be full.
