    A little far from the sceney part of the Riverwalk, it's quiet uptown.

    Pool is beautiful - ask for a room on the 2nd floor with a sliding door that opens to the pool.

    Staff is super friendly and the updated rooms are always clean. The hotel has a retro feel to it, and it's downtown without being too downtown. We got married here over 3 years ago, still beautiful!

    Book direct or they will give away your room. And they are rude about it too.

    It is a beautiful place to stay, there is always great music playing, the bar is open late sometimes, the pool is lighted and closes til 11 and when it's dark it's romantic.

    Overall, the hotel is okay. A few updates could really take the facility to the next level. Be prepared to pay $18 for parking.

    My room has a patio which you can smoke without going down to the lobby. How's that?!

    Hotel is alright for the most part, the WiFi sucks ass, and if you call the front desk they will tell you to just use the business center... Gee thanks

    If you get a room facing the pool and want to sleep in, you won't be able too due to loud samba music playing after 10am.

    Speakers at the pool pump a steady stream of Cuban jazz; the tiki bar inside is like something out of old school Vegas; overall, a very cool retro vibe.
