Rather Dark in the Room

With a dark carpet and a dark bed frame I found it hard to keep from bumping my legs the first two days. But I did seem to do that less as the week went on. There was a lovely lunch buffet on Friday with good choices (the paella was quite nice and the triple mousse chocolate cake was wonderful). Like several hotels I have stay in recently the idea of being green is more a "feel good" card than an actual program. I was rehanging towels but there weren't enough towel bars for the clean and the gently used one and housekeeping didn't seem to get the message.

Excellent experience

The location couldn't be better as it is directly off of a main road and the river walk itself. Beautifully appointed and very clean. The staff were universally pleasant, eager and helpful. Parking is valet only, which is both a drawback and a bonus.
