Nice hotel good value
Nice hotel. Room was small but not uncomfortable. Staff was great. Especially Johnny, always the extra to assure you were taken care of. No food service. Supposed to be a restaurant across the street that delivered. Did once but when I called the 2nd time, they said they were to busy to deliver.

Recommend but room was small.
We enjoyed our stay but there was very little comfort in the room. The couch was torn and the sheet were itchy. The bathroom was tiny and there was not enough counter space. Location was great but I expected more from the room. Staff was awesome.

Perfect location

8/10 Very good

The location was perfect, the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The room was a little small, I knew it was the smallest when I booked it, but was very surprised when we actually got in it, would be OK for a single traveller, but for 2 people with lots of luggage it was not great. Would happily stay here again, but would upgrade to the next size room. Free coffee, WiFi and even laundry, right opposite the river where you can catch river boat and lake tours, millennium mile 2 mins walk across the river, location was absolutely perfect.

I would have liked more pillows and a heavier blanket. Very clean. Love the hallway water filters!

Disney could learn from this staff!
The hotel itself is fine: clean, comfortable, with everything you need. Even a coffee bar accessible 24/7! What separated this visit from others was the staff. I was greeted with the best reception I can recall while checking into a hotel. Disney could learn from the two that greeted me! They were genuine and focused on making my stay the best. And when I was on my way out to get a quick bite and asked for recommendations, their enthusiasm did not wavier. Even offering to call to confirm places were still open as it was getting late. Service like I received makes every organization better.

8/10 Very good

The staff was friendly and accommodating. We had reserved a two bedroom suite only to find out a couple days before we went that there were no interior doors. We had to reserve another room. The bathrooms (there were two) had doors but the bedrooms were not private. Very convenient location- great view of the river on that side of the building.

Great location. But no on-site parking
The location is amazing.. the view out of my window was great. Just the parking was about 2 blocks. And the stiff pillows that gave me neck pain. Those are the bad said of the hotel.
