The Waterfront is filled with surprises. You might see Jerry West, U.S. Senator Jay Rockefeller, the Governor or any of hundreds of the movers and shakers of the state of West Virginia in the lobby or restaurants. The rooms are spacious, well appointed and consumer friendly. The only thing I would add -- and this is a pet pieve -- is free WIFI on all floors. I just cannot imagine not offering free WIFI in this age where travelers want and need to stay connected. It appears that the hotel is owned or, at least, operated by the University. I spoke to many of the staff and they seemed to have a great handle on what it takes to keep hotel users happy. The Waterfront does just that. It is an oasis among lesser hotels and motels centered around West Virginia University. You do need to be aware that there are a lot of University activities and meetings held at the hotel that push availability. For instance, on football game weekends, there is a two-night minimum stay required; even if you could get a reservation, which you cannot unless you books at least a year in advance. That can be troublesum for those traveling long distances and wanted to be part of the action related to WVU. But non-game reservations are much easier to book. The restaurant and bar operations are first class. You just don't expect the wide food menu. There are two bars: one a sports bar and the other catering to connecting movers and shakers to a singular place to gather. There are several nice riverfront eateries within walking distance from the hotel; but you won't go wrong in quality or price at the hotel's restaurants and bars. We absolutely adore this hotel and make axcuses to stay there. Try it. You will love it!
