Positive Reviews

Picture Frame View

The view of the river from the balcony is not grand but it is impressive. You will take pleasure in the sound of the rushing water coming from the flow of the river. It exudes a tranquil and peaceful feeling. There's nothing but trees across the river, so you have a sense of privacy as well.

So Many Outlets

The room has plenty of outlets, which is rare in most hotel rooms. If you are like many who travel with their laptops, phones, iPads, and the like, it's very helpful to have so many outlets when it comes time to recharge your devices.

Easy To Get To Everything

Most things are within walking distance. There's also a trolly that stops in front of the hotel to take you to various attractions.

Negative Reviews

Tip Not Included

Don't be surprised if housekeeping leaves a note asking for a tip. This is not the norm, and unless they are doing things "beyond the call of duty" a tip doesn't seem warranted. However, whether you want to leave a tip or not is totally up to one's own discretion.

Breakfast Around The Block

Staying at a hotel that serves breakfast in another building is just not cool. It means getting up early in the morning, whether rain or shine, trotting down the street to eat a breakfast that may or may not be worth the effort! It's just a big inconvenience in most instances. It's like the breakfast is free, but you have to work for it.

It Doesn't Exist

The Wi-Fi is basically non-existent. It simply doesn't work. Perhaps due to the bandwidth or inadequate Wi-Fi equipment.
