We were very pleased with this hotel and would stay here again. In the lobby area, you do smell a slight cigarette smell from the casino, but where the rooms were, there was none at all. Our king bed room was spacious, and at the far end of the main building, which was fine for us. Our room was on the third floor, which does not have elevator service, but that was okay for us - rooms on this floor are not good for those with mobility issues or heavy luggage. The rooms at this far end of the hotel feel like they are almost built out over the river and VERY quiet - no highway noise, and only occasional feint railway noise. Online, the wallpaper in the rooms looks a bit gaudy, but in reality the wallpaper was muted and tasteful. The electric mirror in the bathroom worked well enough for not steaming up, helping us get ready faster. We enjoyed the pool. The hot tub were nice, a bit small, but seemed to have excessive foam at the time of our visit. On check-in, we forgot to ask about breakfast, which turned out to be included for us. It was a lovely breakfast, made to order from a small selection, tasty, and what a great view from the restaurant. One of the highlights for us is the hotel is only a two block walk via a pedestrian-only access to the historic, charming old town, with several restaurants, cafes, galleries and shops, including a fantastic book store. What a find! less
