8.2 Great
Pros:The proximity of the huge ships. You cannot get any closer
Cons:The room was much smaller than you are lead to believe. You pay 300 for a very small cut up room. I don't mind paying 300. I have paid 500 a night. This property doesn't deserve it. The canal room was very small.
9.4 Excellent
Pros:While we were in the lobby, one of the owners gave us a friendly hello and we got to share about our time in the hotel and learned a little about the hotel's history. It was a great pleasure to get to meet the owner while looking out such a beautiful view. Highly recommended!!!
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Right on the river, super clean, all the amenities.
9.4 Excellent

Cons:The bed was only average.
9.7 Excellent
Pros:Very clean and comfortable, acommodating staff and what a location!
