We had a corner suite overlooking the train station area and stayed three days. Comfortable bed and the room had nice old timey decorations. The cleaning staff did an excellent job each day. Good WiFi in our room, however the signal was spotty in other parts of the hotel. The continental breakfast was filling but a bit disappointing as there was no fruit. The hotel location is perfect as it's in a good location within the historic district. From the hotel you can walk to the river walk, narrow gage train station, numerous restaurants and bars, theatre both legit and movie. The hotel is quiet other than for the 8AM or so train whistles which are part of the adventure. Actually, you'd hear the whistle anywhere in the downtown area! Free parking right at the hotel is a major plus.
