Wont stay here again!!;(
I payed for a river veiw the receptionist put us in a parkinglot view. He did correct it, but after we had got upset about it. There is not much for room to park. They limit you on whats in the room. No cups, not much tissue left for your stay. If you plan to stay more that 1 day, bring tissue. The rooms are hot. Stayed at 25. No controls to turn it down yourself. We had to sleep with the patio door open. This hotel is outdated. And needs to be updated to current hotel standards. Last but not the least there is only one person working as a receptionist. So you if you have any issues. Make sure you have 30-40 minutes to wait for them to help other to get to you

Rooms Clean. Eat Elsewhere.
We were pretty excited to have a river view and this room did not disappoint! What a lovely spot! From the photos you can tell this hotel is somewhat dated, but we got the studio suite with the gorgeous picture windows that appeared more modern. It was... Only the faux finishes were coming apart everywhere on the cabinets and beyond.The beds were okay. Not great, but okay. These things were a bit disappointing, but otherwise the room was nice and we enjoyed our stay. Great sound proofing. The main unfortunate thing was dinner. That's not entirely the hotel's fault except the lack of a map for access to the restaurant and the name of it displayed on the menu in the lobby and in the elevator. There are three hotels that share the same restaurant, but it's not very clear where it is. A map would have helped. The restaurant was incredibly expensive and the portions were miniscule. We also ordered spaghetti and meatballs for our girls to share and we're sent chicken parmesan. After the ordeal trying to order and locate the restaurant, we ended up just not complaining. But I would just plan to eat somewhere else if you stay here.

Needs some work
Room was a good size. We stayed in a family suite. Needs were great but sofa was hard as a rock but the worst thing was the 1980s cable set up. Very limited channels. Everything we clicked on said we need a subscription to watch. The TV's are 16x9 but the cable box only outputs 4x3. Furniture is from 1980s as well. Parking is free for all and very small. You can't park on the road. Unless you get this place for very cheap then pass!
