Positives: Perfect location with a great view of the river. The room was nice and there was a purified water station right by the elevator. The room came with a fridge and microwave which came in handy.
Negatives: The room was pretty warm and humid for the first day we got there. We called the front desk, and it got better for the rest of our stay.

Positives: The staff was super friendly. They also seemed to take Covid seriously, which was nice.
