Convenient, but dated, needs comfy bed
The room smelt of dirty dishwasher and we didn't have any shower towels in the room and had to get them in the morning. The bed was hard and was two singles joined together to make a double which was uncomfortable to sleep between

Great location. Very clean apartment
Great stay and excellent location. The only downside was the parking fee of $25.00 a day which we weren't expecting.

good to okay.
It is an apartment not hotel, no fresh towel daily, no clean up. It is a one beadroom apartment. A good place to stay for more than 2 days, by that time you are tired of eating out. Good restaurants on the streets close by.

Rivet City such a pleasure
Our stay at ISat fantastic. The room was absolutely gorgeous with a view to die for. The staff were always very well mannered always greeted with a smile, willing to help and never a sour look upon their faces. The hotel it staff werd a faces. The hotel in its self was clean the lobby spotless the rooms smelt clean as well as dust free and spotless. We were never harassed by staff but kept inforned of any thing that was happening. I also found the staff on counter to be one of the nicest staff members of a hotel . their smile's along with their out standing customer service . made us feel welcomed.and relaxed right from the moment of arrival. Thank you to all staff members of river city. Hope to see you guys soon Kindest regards Miss T
