    Superb

    The View of the river was spectacular! The staff couldn't be friendlier and location great. Cabs always waiting, or sights were within walking distance.

    Currently under remodeling, but the staff tried to make it accommodating. No free WIFI, but if you sign up for a free membership to Marriot then the WIFI was free, so we did.

    The internet is too expensive.

    Very good

    Walking distance to a lot of restaurants and entertainment venues. River view rooms are worth the extra money.

    TV issues. The remote didn't work well and some of the channels kept breaking up. No free wifi. Bed was uncomfortable.

    The floor of our room had a couple of spots of sticky syrup on it when we arrived, and it was not fun walking on it with socks.
