In the area to visit the Marshall Space center and see Muscle Shoals studios on a family vacation. Location was conveniently located between the two and reasonably priced. Comfortable and clean rooms. Updated common areas. Helpful and friendly staff.

Picked this hotel from TripAdvisor- great place to stay- room was large and well decorated with a view of the river - buffet breakfast was very good. The manager of this hotel should be proud of his staff- everyone from the front desk to the restaurant staff that we came in contact with were great- our waitress for breakfast on...

Hotel was chosen as the wedding party hotel. Great location but rooms were not up to Hilton standard. The decor was dated and not fresh. Baths very small and industrial feeling. The rooms looked relatively clean but did not smell accordingly. The carpets had a worn dirty look. Liens on beds were fresh and inviting. The rooms were just not...

Crappy hotel...tiny bathrooms...water smells...no coffee or breakfast service before 7:00AM...beds are worn out. Single king room rate was $99, but a Queen was $149! What a rip off. I will never stay there again and I am a Hilton Honors member! May be time to switch to Marriot.

A very nice facility with very friendly staff. We will return. The rooms are clean and updated. The higher floors have a view of the river. The front desk staff is very accommodating and pleasant to deal with. We stayed both on our trip to Florida and return from Florida.

Updated rooms and restaurant. Quality was good. In the king sweet the bathroom area was small (not well laid out). Room was clean with nice furniture. Bathroom had new tile and vanity (I assume since every thing was new).

This is a newly remodeled hotel and probably one of the best around the immediate area. Rooms are comfortable and they have a great full breakfast bar. My boys thought the best part was the indoor/outdoor pool that is joined together, heated and you can swim from one side to the next. Their workout room could have more updated equipment,...

Excellent property, luxurious, free parking, good room service for breakfast, nice indoor-outdoor pool. Hotel is not on the river bank so river view is just sort of, with train noise in the middle of the night. Other side has truck noise so you choose. Biggest and only real complaint is that the restaurant doesn't serve dinner until 6 pm!

Very nice hotel. Child and family friendly. Prompt courteous service. We would use this hotel again. We had 100 guests (teenagers) and the hotel staff had our rooms prepared upon arrival. Check-in was flawless, which isn't always the case with large groups. The management staff was most professional and accommodated our needs.
