Location was great. Staff was friendly. View was ok. We had one very small window. Unfortunately, during our second night there, 2 parties happened. One above us and one right next door. “There is not a lot we can do but call the police”. We were up until 3am and needed up early that morning to depart. The hotel needs its own security.

Amazing service and great room. We booked last minute and got the last room to accommodate our family for NYE. Beautiful firework show right outside the front doors on the river and did I say amazing service?! One of the gentlemen that worked there went above and beyond helping my husband check in find restaurants close by stood outside in the freezing cold snow flagging down cabs for us. We will definitely return.
