Wonderful romantic place to stay. Staff is friendly and helpful. Restaurant has very high quality food with a great menu and great view of the river. Hotel is within walking distance of many bars and restaurants. Will definitely stay again for other special occasions.

Had the Thanksgiving special. The soup was wonderful and the meal just got better and better. They even sent us home with "leftovers" in a bag. Loved it.
