Needs to be updated

This hotel needs to be updated. The carpet was pulling away from the floor in my room. Additionally, there was hair (not from anyone's scalp) in the tub when I decided to shower. The air conditioning remained super cold despite the fact that I adjusted it upwards to 72 degrees. I would not stay here again, however, for the price, I can see why others would.

The hotel bar's food is very greasy - chicken quesadillas might as well have been chicken grease quesadillas.

Not a 4 Star Hotel

Small. Old. Not a 4 star by anyone's standards. Stay at the Hampton 2 blocks away and get a much better value.

Overall, its GOOD !

Pretty much what you see as advertised is what you get. The room could have had a better nite stand radio and more room amentities but overall it was a good stay. Some people in the rooms on my floor was up really late at nite and was noisy but that's not the hotel fault. I didnt even report it. The ice machine on my floor (8th) didnt work so I had to go to the 7th floor to use theirs, no big deal though I guess.

Friendly Staff

The staff were excellent! I found the bed to be hard and uncomfortable. The room was clean (even though the closet door was of the track and standing up next to the closet) and the view of the river was great.

Don't go back to Jacksonville

There is construction surrounding the hotel. My room (908) was above the service side of the hotel. I listened to garbage trucks empty dumpsters, delivery trucks deliver "goods" and the ringing of the drawbridge on the highway all night long. After 3 hours of convincing, the hotel let me out of my last nights stay and refunded me the prepaid portion. The adjacent restaurant, Ruths Chris Steakhouse was the redeeming quality here. I had an excellent meal at the bar and the bartender worked the room like magic; ensuring all single business travellers felt comfortable and well taken care of. I will never - EVER - stay in this hotel again. The noise issue was the clincher for me.

Great value. Small bathroom.

Very good location. Extremely courteous and helpful staff. Bathroom too small, no counter space on vanity. Outside flood light illuminating the exterior of the building pointed right into our eyes on the 10th floor.
