Blast from the past as we entered the 50’s era Hotel. The Lobby is now decorated modern to resemble a resort in Mexico. Lobby features: Bar, Coffee bar, Restaurant, Internet Café and outdoor seating. Rooms were small but clean and comfortable. No refrigerators or microwaves in rooms. I had a room overlooking the pool area. Pool area was very nice with lots of seating areas, towels and a small outdoor bar. This Hotel had the largest Fitness Center I have ever seen. Riverwalk entrance across from Hotel and main Restaurants and attractions a 20 minute walk away. Water Taxi does stop at Riverwalk entrance for a fee. Parking is $18 for Valet or Self Parking. Small self parking lot with tight spaces, however cars were gated in. This is an older Hotel so don’t expect the sparkle of a new Hotel but I enjoyed my stay and would definitely come back.
