1 night stay on way to Chicago. Beautiful clean hotel, great location, superb sized room, overlooking river. Linked to Skywalk which we loved. Next to a lovely river walk, which we did. Would have loved to have stayed longer. Breakfast was also great.

The staff was really kind during my whole stay. The fitness center is ok to exercise a bit during your stay. The parking lot is across the street. During summer it is... More

I stayed there for 4 weeks on a business trip. The location is great, by the Riverwalk, close to the third ward. The room was huge with high ceiling and large windows.
