The staff is nice, but the hotel is terrible. They waited at least 10-15 years too long before "upgrading" the hotel. But the upgrades are like putting lipstick on a pig, it only dresses it up so much. There are still holes in the walls and poorly mended cracks in the ceiling. They have newly tiled showers, but then kept the original crumbled soap holder that was shoddily glued back together. They have a convenience store, but don't get too exited because it's not going to have what you need and what they do have costs more than if you bought the items at an airport! It's a perfect location, it's downtown, on the river and if you have to do business downtown, it's your only option for accommodations (until they finish with the Courtyard Marriott).
