I had previous stayed in the Suite Tower. This time we were in the Rivue Tower. The Suite Tower is very nice, but the Rivue Tower is more dated, but still nice. The parking garage and elevator there need some serious cleaning and updating.

The first room I was booked was completely not clean. Dirty towels, trash cans full and beds unmade. The beds were very uncomfortable

Surprisingly, when we checked in after a long drive and then a memorial for my nephew, we were offered an even much lower charge to go from a king bed to 2 queens. The room was a full suite and parking was included. Very much appreciated!
