I really enjoyed this hotel, I was there for one night on business. The hotel is not very far from the airport and located in a great historic area. The hotel was very nicely decorated and the room was very comfortable. Being on the 14th floor, I thought the room was very quiet and had a great view of the river. The room did have a very nice Bose Wave system in it for the alarm clock, but no convenient plug for my phone charger. Most hotels these days have lamps with plugs, this room did not. The only other issue which is partly mine and maybe a function of the building was the stand up shower. The bathroom overall was awesome,nice jacuzzi tub, great counter space and lots of room. Which was puzzling to me when the shower stall was maybe 3ft by 3ft. For someone of my height 6'4" and broad shoulders, it was like being in an airplane lavatory. It was cozy to say the least. None of these would ever prevent me from coming back or recommending, I might just ask for a room with a larger shower. Otherwise, great shops, restaurants near by and only about a 1 block walk to the Independence Park.
