A beautiful location right on the River Walk. The newly renovated restaurant and pool just opened the day before we checked in. A great hotel in excellent condition. All services were excellent except there is still some limitations on maid services remaining from COVID, but they brought fresh towels and whatever we needed.

The valet drivers were very attentive and didn’t hesitate to greet you upon arrival or when it was time to retrieve the vehicle. Very impressed with how prompt they were. All hotel staff was nice. We were disappointed with the “River View Room”. It was a view of a very small area of the river and mostly of a dirty parking structure. It did have easy access to the river walk. The restaurant and staff were good.
