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.

The hotel’s location is perfect. The roof top pool and view is amazing. The cost of valet is ridiculous $38 a day. Would stay there again for location alone!

Being able to walk into the hotel right off the Riverwalk. So nice and convenient. Also, our room view was of the giant Cypress. Perfect view at bedtime. Wonderful surprise to have a suite room but it was a tad noisy outside with one puppy barking and one toddler having a meltdown. Maybe a better-insulated door design for 4th floor guests. Other than that, we loved the hotel, amenities, and the staff was super friendly.
