Disappointed in service.
This is a beautiful hotel in a great location. But, we had a HVAC issue ... one unit was toasty, the other one very cool. We advised the front desk and they said it will be fixed. It wasn't! At checkout i asked someone at the front desk if their records showed maintenance came to our room. Yes, he said ... "they fixed it" ... advised them it was still a problem.

6/10 Good

Our room was clean. Staff was very polite. We asked for a room with a partial view of the river but for the first 1-1/2 days of our 3 day stay, our shade was stuck in the down position - so NO view. Also, there was nowhere to sit and relax other than an uncomfortable desk chair. It also would have been nice to have a walk-in shower - so much easier for 75+ year-olds.
