Overall, it is a very nice hotel in a good location with excellent staff. They are working on a dining area remodel, but have done a superb job with limiting noise and dust from the construction area. My only minor complaint was the lack of a complimentary breakfast. Regardless, I would stay here again.

Right on the riverwalk was nice. Didn't like the extra hard pillows or that the bathroom doesn't have a lock.

The property was well located. I was disappointed at the additional fees and cost of valet parking. Significantly increased the final price of my stay. I'm not sure these costs were well understood with my reservation.
