We got there at 3:30pm. The room was not ready. They said they would call me when the room become available. I went back 3 hours later and had to remind them about my room.

When booking the room, it said shower / bathtub combination. There was no tub, and a shower very small. Also when I first got to the room, the people in room 336 were very loud I could hear them through my walls. I called the desk and explain the situation. It's my wife's birthday and we wanted some alone time and quiet time away from the kids. They offered another room, however a queen-size bed.. im66 285 lb. Needless to say we stayed in the room, with the no noise next door, and an Matchbox shower...

Be warned: construction
Under normal conditions, I'm sure this review would be different. But, to be quite frank, this stay at Waterfront Hotel was exceedingly disappointing. When I arrived, for example, they noted that all elevators were under construction and that my hotel room was in the furthest possible part of the hotel -- up four flights of stairs. I asked if someone could assist with lugging the luggage up the stairs, and front desk attendant informed me that they did not have someone to help with that. So, I lugged. Every time I wanted to go to or from my room, I had to pass through an active construction zone. There was the constant sound of noise one might expect from a hotel under construction -- the ear plugs they left on the bed were cute, but not incredibly effective. The hallways smelled like construction dust was being sprinkled through the HVAC system. I would steer clear of this hotel until it is out of construction, and even then I would be hesitant to return.

Good hotel, No onsite Restaurant.
Nice Hotel, pretty location and our rooms were spacious and clean. No restaurant in hotel so had to go elsewhere to eat.
