Great Overall/Beds Uncomfortable
Overall, we had a great stay. Location is great for walking the Riverwalk. The price was right (parking a little high). The rooms are huge, especially for the great location. Decor is fun. Pretty much everything was on par for a great hotel stay, except for the beds. The king size bed in the bedroom was SO UNCOMFORTABLE (very hard and the sheets didn't cover the foot of the bed and the pillows were pretty lumpy). We also used the pullout bed in the sitting area. I know to not expect anything special from a hide-a-bed, but this was next level horrible/uncomfortable - only a 5 yr or younger could survive the back/neck/body pain that would ensue had an adult tried to sleep on it. Bottom line, this would be my go to hotel for the Riverwalk if the comfort of the beds was better.

It is unfortunate that a hotel like this has to add a $7.50 addional charge for services not used. Otherwise a great stay with a slightly sour taste in our mouths for this stupid fee.

Okay experience. Great location.
The location was fantastic. Unfortunately, the overall experience was just okay. The bed left me with a sore back. The bartenders focused on getting their orders and work done but not so much on service, if that makes any sense. Where’s the friendly banter? I would give this place a solid 3.5 stars. Almost there but not quite right.
