"Great location and great pool. Staff very helpful."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Room was clean and big, but seemed old. However having the bed in view of the door you got the light from the hall. Almost no place to put anything in the bathroom. Shower/tub was large and lots of room; TV was good with many channels. Coffee machine made weak coffee. would not use it again. There are better ones out there that could be used in the room. Pool was great! Luggage staff were very helpful. Couldn't ask for a better location to shop and see restaurants and the river.
