We stayed at this hotel during an overnight to visit the Children's Museum, and just relax as a family. Our room was nice, although the AC was very old and we were not able to adjust the temperature or fan speed. There was also a huge wet spot on the floor in front of the unit, but it was during an extremely hot and humid week, so maybe this is not the usual state of things.
The room was very big, and didn't feel crowded at all with 2 young kids, even after we set up our son's pack and play. The room was clean, and had a fridge, which was very handy. The pool area is fabulous--very entertaining for kids. A great zero-depth area for the little ones, and a bigger pool with a waterslide for the older ones. The only annoying thing was that you had to wear a wrist-band for the pool. While it was a great pool area, it's not really a "waterpark," worthy of wristbands.
The back of the hotel is on the river, witha beautiful view and has a great patio for sitting on. We enjoyed sitting outside and watching the boats go by.
We stayed on a Sunday night, so were able to have continental breakfast, which is only provided Monday-Friday. It was very basic, but good.
While the "Bones" of the building could use some updating (cracked ceilings and walls, outdated figures, etc.), the basics are clean and comfortable. We would recommend this hotel for families wanting to relax!
One other thing to note, there are only 2 floors in the hotel, but no elevator. If you are traveling with small children and lots of luggage, be sure to request a first-floor room.
