Mediocre Riverwalk Stay
Looks and feels like an old hotel. Front desk employees were immature and seemed to struggle with what to do about dirty linens. There was one positive to this hotel, the valet service. Those were the most courteous, hard working employees in the hotel.

A turd with glitter. Would not recommend!
Considering the price aspects of the hotel were very dated. The heating system was primitive and EXCESSIVELY loud. The walls were paper-thin. Housekeeping was knocking on doors at 9:00 am on New Years Day. The toilet was old & had mold under the rim, the bathroom had a running drip. After the price of the hotel there is was an additional $20 charge for parking.
