Overall, we really enjoyed our stay. The staff was wonderful and made sure to communicate with us via text every step of the way. The food and service at the restaurant was simply awesome. The rooms are adorable but our bathroom could have been cleaner. There was pee on the toilet seat when we arrived and the floors had footprints on them. The area around the hotel is good and just a block from the main downtown area; 2-3 blocks from the RiverWalk. A lot of great stores and restaurants in the area.
