We loved the beautiful hotel and all the amenities it offered, along with its central location. We were attending a concert at the Riverside and were able to walk there from the hotel, which was perfect!

The Pfister is a stunning facility. The only negative thing about our stay was that the gorgeous pool was closed for servicing and when I called to ask about its hours of operation, I was not told it was closed. The room was spacious, lovely, comfortable, and the view awesome.
