We booked a single king room online for our anniversary and were thrilled at check-in when Brian at the front desk asked if we'd like to be upgraded to the "Presidential Suite". It was such a lovely gesture and the suite was gorgeous. We had a panoramic view of the river and city from large, clean windows. The historic hotel is beautifully restored and all of the staff were very cheerful, professional and attentive. The hot breakfast and evening munchies and drinks were included and plentiful. The parking is across the street with a covered walkway. We enjoyed the proximity to the river with nicely landscaped walking paths to the Veterans Memorial and Exploration Place. We caught the free Q-line Trolley just a block from the hotel to the Old Town entertainment district and were dropped back later outside the hotel. There is a lot to see and do in the area. We toured the Museum of World Treasures and had lunch at Hero's Sports Bar. It all made for a very romantic getaway. If you stay, be sure to ask to view the mosaic Black Bear Bosin mural that covers three walls in the grand ballroom - a must see!
