Stayed two days and it was mostly good. Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful - they were kind enough to let me check in a few hours early, as I didn't feel well. The room was a little small but nicely furnished & very clean. There was a good-size mini-fridge but no microwave (they have a restaurant). Good wifi, cookies in the lobby, no trouble parking in the back even though a couple wedding receptions were going on. Nice breakfast buffet of scrambled eggs, hot side items that seem to change daily (French toast, pancakes, sausage, ham), some granola, yogurt, fruit. Had everything we needed.
Two negatives: either the walls are thin or there's no soundproofing in the connecting door - I could hear every word spoken next door. Luckily they were fairly quiet, and we tried to be, too. The other is that on the 2nd day, our room was untouched - no cleaning, fresh towels, bed made, nothing. At about $125 a night, they could do a tad better on that. Overall, though, it's friendly, comfortable, in a good location near the river (where there seem to be summer festivals and concerts) and a nice place to stay.
