My family had a great stay at the hotel! It is extremely clean and they even have a cute machine that makes coffee/cappuccinos available from 6am to 11am. It was located next to everything and the staff was so helpful. The cost of parking is steep but overall I wasn’t too concerned since I knew my car would be safe. We will definitely be staying there again!

They charge me $184.48 out of nothing and I spoke with the receptionist and she told me to send an email to the Manager that never respond to my email and this is my second call and they don't know why I got that charge. I never stay there again

My stay at The Bristol Hotel was great, my room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. I was able to use the amenities such as the gym was fully equipped with good cardio and weight machines. I also appreciated the rate for valet, being cheaper than a lot of hotels in the waterfront area.

The rooms were well appointed and decorated nicely. The location was convenient with easy walkability to several restaurants, the Gas Lamp Distract and the convention center. I did not like that there was no maid service during the stay. I can understand not changing the bedding or towels, especially during a short stay, however it would be nice to at least have the garbage changed daily, the beds made and coffee pods/amenities replenished daily especially for the price being paid.
