Loved the historic value but they were going under construction, but it was easy to overlook. The morning coffee offered was watered down, but there were a lot of coffee shops easy to walk to to get a cup of coffee.

The facility was under renovation and a lot was under construction yet still charged premium prices to stay. -Wet paint signs everywhere (little/no odor), plastered walls, ladder in friends room/blinds not working, open wiring in halls and above sink--Staff did not seem to know which rooms were still being worked on. Pre-renovation room stuff was stacked in hall corners. Room arrangement was very cramped, looked improvised: Less than a foot of width between TV "table" & beds to get thru-often impacted during the night. stand-alone bathroom sink, no counter surfaces, shelves or towel rack. Normal route to room requires going to lobby level 4, halls-under renovation-around to secondary 3-4-5 elevator or level 3 thru fire escape doors to get to rooms. No ice machines on our floor. Only ADA (or older rooms?) have bathtubs: Showers are super water saving, take a long time to clean/rinse off. Staff missed making up our room while we were out all day--had to find cart and ask for towels, coffee, water, etc. Note: everyone was very polite and helpful, but I will not stay here again.

Staff was very courteous. Overall loved River Inn. Was very disappointed in that renovations was in progress including painting and carpet removable. For a person with a pulmonary condition this was not conducive to my health. Had we been notified of renovations we would have not stayed here.

Loved the location! Right on the river and by all the shops. I didn't realize the whole hotel is under reconstruction, so the lobby was the only part that was clean. Every floor was covered in plastic and LOTS of dust. Our room was nice, but not completely finished. The view was beautiful of the river and the staff was wonderful. The ac wasn't working properly and so it stayed FREEZING in our room. The shower also didn't work properly and settings were backwards. The water was scorching hot on the "cold" setting. I'd go back when the reconstruction is done because I'm sure it will be beautiful and loved the location. There's also additional fees not included in the booking. There's a "destination fee" of $20...they said this is for the "amenities" whether you use them or not. The parking garage is 2 blocks away so you can park your car yourself or it's $34 per night to use the valet.
