Awesome that it was right on the river! Had a fabulous wrap around balcony looking out on river! Bathroom was fabulous! Room itself lacked in space with no closet to hang or put clothes/bags in and no extra mirror in room besides in bathroom.

The patio overlooking the view is everything in this hotel. The rooms being sparse was understandable, but made us wonder at the difference in cleaning that is needed between guests, and why everything wasn't disinfected before? my ignorance likely. The front desk could have anticipated common requests. Had to call down for the WiFi password. Had to go down and ask for coffee replacements for the next morning. Facility: the coffee prep/water/microwave area was dark. The food took a while, but then again, we weren't in a hurry. Evening meals all over town had lines due to the reduced seating, etc... It was difficult to get used to folks walking right past your window on the upper floors. You wanted to look out at the view, but the balcony is right out your back door. Maybe planters dividing the common balcony instead of letting people stroll up there? Ambiance drove the price up.

Stayed in the riverfront king room which was decorated nicely with a great view of the Arkansas river. Hotel is clean and newly renovated. Nice bar and common area. Enjoyed the Thanksgiving buffet at their restaurant.

Beautiful property as usual. Outstanding esthetics! The one recommendation I would make is to either increase the water flow in the shower (I realize it is low due to conservation) or lower the shower head. Honestly few people on this earth are 6’ 4” tall. It doesn’t help to try to conserve water this way if an individual has to spend 10 extra minutes trying to get the shampoo out of their hair. Just sain’
