          This hotel is nicely located right off the river walk. The suites are very spacious and nice. The rooftop pool was also a plus to the hotel. I did have to take off a star due to an bug problem one of the nights there.

          Does the hotel provide accommodations such as vibrator or strobe lights for deaf people who cannot hear standard alarm clocks? I can hear during the day, but not at night when I take my cochlear implant off. I am fine in a regular room with the exception of needing the alarm.
