The lobby in this hotel is beautiful, a great place to sit and relax and have a drink (when there aren't buses full of people transferring in or out). The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice, and we had a view of the Atlantic from the 13th floor where we stayed.

Great hotel with very Americano atmosphere with classic American move pictures from Marilyn Monroe to Marlon Brando to Clark Gabor decorating the lobby. Very modern deco and fixtures. Safe deposit box is busted in my room on the 16th floor which mean I need to carry my valuables with me at all time.

We requested a kettle which was delivered by housekeeping. The breakfast buffet was delicious and the staff were good at keeping it well supplied. It did get very busy with tour...

Seemed to be a 4-star hotel in all respects, except it is located far away from the river-front attractions. Good free wifi and okay breakfast. Staff was very helpful. Room was comfortable and AC excellent.
