There was a blue light shinging through my window all night from the dining area downstairs. The drapes are built in a way i literally couldnt block it out. I didnt sleep because of that. It was the wierdest thing I've ever seen, I don't know why you would design it like that. Staff was great though.

Wonderful hotel, beautiful room. Concierge helped us with lunch ideas and dinner reservations. Would definitely stay here again.

Staff was very accommodating. Location was excellent Room was very nice.

Safe deposit box inside the room was not working so we have to use the one in the loby (inconvenience). Room was compact. We felt cramped inside the bathroom. Location is nice with river view in front of the hotel. The restaurant on top floor has a nice brunch menu.

The hotel is very modern and upscale.The staff is very friendly, helpful, on point, and available 24hrs. The restaurant is very pricey so we walked around the corner to a street of restaurants instead. The view from the hotel restaurant upstairs was beautiful. The view of the river from our room was great. The room had a safe that only uses credit cards to open and close but it did not work. The light on the desk did not work and made it difficult to work on our laptop and papers. Laundry service is very expensive. The maids come in twice a day and everything smells of heavy bleach. We did not know there was room service until we were on our way out, no one ever left a menu in our room. The hotel definitely has a five star appeal, the room was 4 star, and the overbleached linens and overbearing maids made us homesick. The location was great.
