Good choice of the hotels near downtown
Posted Feb 22, 2017
This modern hotel is a good choice if you are needing a suite type room near downtown. We've stayed here on 3 different trips. Its about a mile walk along the river into town, however, be aware that for the past year or more, there has been construction along Riverside drive that you must walk past / around in order to get into the down town area. This hotel is ok for families because it has a small indoor pool, hot tub. With that said, its a pretty small pool, which can get crowded on the weekends between 3 - 6 pm. For being a suite (meant for 4 people or so) the bathrooms are poorly designed. There is a huge sink, but very little counter space. Almost no more than about 6-8 inches wide on either side of the sink, enough to put a toothbrush, but if you are sharing that bathroom with multiple family members, don't count on being able to leave your toiletries on the bathroom counter. Also, the sink is very high, so if you have young children less than about 40 inches tall, they'll have trouble reaching the sink to brush their teeth without a step stool. In addition, there is no towel bar only small hooks in the bath so you can't hang up a bathing suit or even multiple towels to dry. Aesthetically the glass showers are nice, but there is not a tub to bathe young children in. The hotel can be noisy on the weekends before 10 pm especially if you have a room that faces the fire pit. Couch bed is ok for young children, not recommended for adults.
