We used to stay at this property when it was Hotel 71 and always loved it. Royal Sonesta is equally as awesome. Very friendly and helpful staff, very clean, quiet, close to everything and great views of the river. The rooms are huge. One suggestion would be a microwave in the room and disposable drinking cups for the bathroom.
