Hidden charges
Only bad thing I would really have to say is that they don't let you know there's a deposit we have to pay for every day we stay, and it's a high deposit. They should notify people as their booking about it. Wasn't able to really enjoy because the deposit we had to leave was our fun money.

Property located on the beautiful riverwalk although a long walk to the popular restaurant area. No convenient coffee, breakfast places other than the hotel. Always a few blocks to walk to. Even the closest bus stop was several blocks away.
