The Bad
The hotel could use some improvement and guests left suggestions.

Although guests found the rooms comfortable, they also mentioned that they were dark and tired, and some of them were small, with small bathrooms. Also, some guests paid extra for a water view and sometimes found these rooms only offered a glimpse of the river from a distance. 

Guests who were expecting a more luxurious room with updated furniture and fixtures were disappointed in the cost of the stay and judged the hotel as being too expensive. 

Some guests were dissatisfied with the hotel's overall lack of polish, or with aloof staff failing to supply the expected first-class service of a luxury resort. Some felt there were too many extra fees where guests felt burdened by the cost instead of pampered with care during their stay (some examples: a late check out fee for 1 hr, fees for the tennis court, and a bottle of water was $10).

Although guests usually enjoyed the breakfast and dining on site, they sometimes complained about slow and inattentive service and their meals being poorly prepared, mediocre and expensive.
