My husband and I arrived at the hotel to check-in around 11pm on Friday night. Even with such a late arrival, there was no room in front of the hotel to park the car, and the valet was nowhere to be found for at least 10 mins.
The lobby was surprisingly busy as the hotel bar was over spilling with people, but this created a very fun atmosphere. The purple hued lobby with the large pillow adored couch in the center was further accented this lounge feel. This is not what I expected when initially booking. I was glad that this theme did not carry on throughout the hotel.
The room was quite large, had a nice view of the river and was well decorated - trendy and modern yet welcoming. The bathroom, although nice at first appearance did seem to need a facelift as the wallpaper was peeling.
Location is great - walking distance to most of the sights.
