Cons: Parking spaces are way too few and way too tight. Finally parked across the street in the Holiday Inn Express lot. Management shrugged their shoulders and said "sorry." The big minus was the bathroom. Ill-designed and ill-lit. Toilet/shower area, the only light was the heat lamp, in an overwhelmingly dark granite space. The toilet paper holder was so close to the toilet you were sitting partly on the roll, and I mean literally. The double sink vanity counter was small, little room for stuff, sinks took up all the space. Can't see why two sinks, then. Lighting over the mirror was so bright in the very dark granite space there was no background contrast, so you had to lean right in under it to see for hair and makeup. I'm not explaining it well, but ... Also, there was no lip on the sinks, so with double handled faucets water went everywhere, like you find in so messy public bathrooms.
Other: patio light out, bed lamp light out, dishwasher rack broken, tub wouldn't drain no matter what I did. Tub bottom, while standing in a couple of inches of soapy water was very slippery. High-side of jet tub made getting out of the slippery tub dangerous. However, morning front desk was quick and professional, and sort of shocked, when making the list for maintenance.
Pros: affordable, large one bedroom suite, attractive, near everything, quality furnishings, etc. (Though no put-your-feet-up place in the living area to watch TV.) Great bed, lots of pillows. Front desk staff excellent, except for the night person. Right on the river, neat view.
I wish I could be more positive. But this was my experience. I think I'd have been okay with the whole thing if it hadn't been for the bathroom. The parking just made it worse.
