    The room was very comfortable. Jason on the door was fantastic and went the extra mile. Overall a good, but not great, hotel - comfortable and very well located.

    Evening reception staff were poor, we found it very difficult to have calls answered. The food at dinner was disappointing.

    Great property. Real close to everything.

    I do not believe it was entirely worth the money. We paid extra for a river view that basically had a view of a tree.
