Wonderful location and amenities of the hotel. Disappointed with the paper thin walls between rooms where we could hear every words the neighbors said. Also hair and nail clippings in the bathroom.

Great hotel
The room was very comfortable and very roomy. The bed was extremely comfortable. The only issue was that there were no water bottles in the room and I couldn't find any in the hotel so had to walk to find some. Also there were no towels or water in the gym. Other than that, great stay and I would stay again.

Room had a separate entertaining/sleeping area which is the prefect set up for traveling. River Walk was right outside off the hotel patio and the roof top pool was great. Would definitely stay again!

8/10 Very Good

Overall I had an excellent stay. My biggest complaint however is the fact that they advertise king beds, but the bed in the room is clearly a queen. They then try to gaslight me into believing that it is a king and that I’m the first to mention it. I own a king, I sleep in it nightly. I know what a king is supposed to be. To their credit, they gave me a discount, but only after arguing about what is and isn’t a king bed. I would have sought a different hotel that has true kings had they been honest about what they offer.
