We have mixed feelings about this hotel. Depending on your point of view it is either a great hotel or a confused hotel. Based on the name, we expected a riverside hotel. When we checked in we were warned not to expect what we may have been promised by the national reservation service. With one adult and boy & girl teenagers it was important that we get what we reserved: a king bed and a pullout couch. Though the parking lot was empty and obviously not everyone had checked in to the "sold out" hotel, we were told that we could not change our room if our room did not have a pull out couch. The clerk did not know what it had. This caused unnecessary angst for three exhausted travelers. But the room had the right accommodations. Brand new hotels are a different kind of delight- new towels, super clean, new bedding. This hotel was no different. BUT...the architect/designer appears to be young and they spent money on unnecessary touches and not on what travelers need/expect. With four floors, there is only one very....slow....elevator. The luggage carts only steer one way. And with all of those guests and a so-called full breakfast, you'd better get up early because there is only 1 waffle iron for 100+ potential guests. So bring your patience. One nice surprise, and not included in any materials, is that the teens went exploring and found a public swimming hole right around the corner on the river with platforms and Tarzan swings into the river.
