4/5 Good

Happy face iconLiked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Overall it was a decent hotel. The woman at the front desk during the day was friendly and was able to get me checked in three hours early. However, there were a few instances where I went to the front desk and she wasn’t wearing her mask. I had booked a king room however when I got there I was told there were no king rooms available, so that was disappointing. However then I read the small print on Expedia and realized that it didn’t guarantee a room type. Next time I’ll be sure to book directly through the hotel. Pros: The bed was comfortable and the pillows were incredible. The view of the Riverwalk from the room was beautiful. Easy and quick checkin and checkout. Safe location. Cons: There was a strange moldy smell coming from the bathroom sink. One of the towels in my bathroom had a large yellow stain on it. The phone had a smear of something on it, which came right off when I wiped it with a sanitizer wipe. So I’m not sure how thoroughly the room was cleaned. There was hair in the shower. I manage a hotel in Boston so I may be a bit more critical of hotels than others. Also, I didn’t bring any of this up to staff while I was there because it was so minor. Therefore I can’t say whether or not they would have fixed the issues. Overall it was a nice stay and I’d recommend it.
