Kellie, visiting The Cubby Bear Mon, 25 November 2013

Liked: Excellent customer service and clean. The price was stellar for staying downtown. Appreciated the free luggage check the following day so we could explore downtown.

Matthew, Montgomery, visiting CIBC Theatre Tue, 28 May 2013

At the time of our arrival, the Memorial Day parade was being staged in the vicinity of the hotel. It would seem a courtesy e-mail or text could have been sent to suggest alternate routes or advise of street closing/opening. It would seem that all of the information required is at your fingertips.

Liked: Staff was very accommodating and pleasant. Location was convenient for any plans - blocks away from anything you could want to do.
Disliked: Containers for ice were difficult to acquire. Perhaps placing one per room and extras at the ice station would work better.

Liked: Very nice staff and clean.

What a find!

Liked: We really enjoyed our stay in the River hotel, it?s well located in the heart of the city centre, and right across the road from the river and starting point for boat trips and the Big Bus tours. The front desk reception team were amazing, really helpful and nothing was too much trouble. They had a great knowledge of the city and offered advice and guidance on places to visit and also made a few additional suggestions which we absolutely loved and would not have visited otherwise. We thought the complimentary refillable water bottles on each floor was a great idea and we really made use of them. Another great touch was the complimentary tea/coffees and snacks on the 2nd floor and between 5pm and 6pm each day complementary wine with cheese and biscuits were served in the lobby. We loved our stay here and the staff really made it for us, outstanding customer service ? thank you
