It was a perfect location beautiful views of the river I’ve stayed at a lot of places and this was one of the best. The room was clean and it was quiet and a great location. I’ll definitely be back. If anybody has a bad comment about the place they probably aren’t telling the truth.

Amazing Stay
My housekeeper Andrea, did an amazing job of setting up the room for me. Check in was quick and the staff were very accommodating with providing me with extra toiletries. The location is amazing- I had a spectacular view of St. Lawrence River and was a literal walking distance from all the eateries and Uncle Sam's Boat Tour. Would stay here again for sure- just to warn any future travelers the hotel does limit parking to one car per room (due to limited parking). Had a great stay!

We enjoyed the private balcony that faced Boldt Castle and the in-room jacuzzi. Our room was very neat and clean and our bed was very comfortable. Plenty of outlets, TV channels, and lighting. I would highly recommend staying here and would stay here myself again.
