The room they put us in was run down! I have stayed here many times over the last 20 years and mark has always been very accommodating and had great customer service and very nice rooms but he was absent from the hotel during this visit! I called the front desk to find out what was up and why the decline in the rooms . The front desk was polite but she just told me “why should they fix it up when most people pay$ 184 for the same room with no complaints! The she offered to refund one night and we could check out ! The hotel was not full there where plenty of empty rooms but she never offered us another room ! We stayed in 133 the room next door was the same but in much better conditions and available both nights we where there! It saddens me to say as much as I loved this hotel over the years I probably will not stay there again!i don’t know if this happened because I booked on a site instead of directly with the hotel or just the absence of mark who always gave excellent service and made sure the accommodations where at tip top shape

Cozy on the River
Nice, cozy room convenient to dining, attractions, and shopping. It is not extravagant or plush, but to lay your head down at night in a safe, quiet area for a reasonable rate, this is wonderful
