There was so much wrong with my stay this year that it would take too long to itemize. Some issues, the weekend desk clerk was rude to me and other guests, there is a $20 ‘destination ‘ daily fee that was never explained to me, there are no small appliances in the rooms, the shades don’t cover the windows, the outlets are too few and hard to… Read more

We thank Justin, Stephen and Cedric for helping make it a great stay. And when we had a minor problem in our room the woman at the front desk was helpful, caring and even provided us a coupon for breakfast. Their service and caring of visitors made it a great stay. We can’t wait to revisit. Read less

This is a wonderful historic hotel in a perfect location on the river. Everything is nearby. The highlight of our stay was meeting Ms. Val who ran the nightly Manager's Reception. She has a wonderful personality and it is obvious that she enjoys her job. She loved having fun with the guests. She even gave my husband and I an anniversary card and… Read more
This is a wonderful historic hotel in a perfect location on the river. Everything is nearby. The highlight of our stay was meeting Ms. Val who ran the nightly Manager's Reception. She has a wonderful personality and it is obvious that she enjoys her job. She loved having fun with the guests. She even gave my husband and I an anniversary card and cake. So very sweet of her! See photos attached as well as the caricature of Val that my husband drew for her. Thank you Ms. Val for making our stay very special. This would have been a 5 star review if it weren't for a few unfortunate items. Renovation was taking place which is to be expected for such an older hotel and in light of the recent hurricane but walking through the dust and paint smell was unpleasant. Our room was nicely remodeled but lacking in counter space in the bathroom. I set up an ironing board for shelving space. Had some issues with not getting housekeeping service for several days until Rosario showed up and fixed everything. Thank you Rosario. Hope to return to the area in the near future. Read less

This hotel is in a prime location being on the river, having so many restaurants, different shops, and bars. The rooms are nice, details are moderately upscale, rooms are small. Hotel has a lot of restoration going on, but it didn’t bother us during or stay. Hotel staff need a litt class in manors and politeness. We had a great time and would stay… Read more
