We went for a conference in March 2017. The rooms, conference facilities, food were excellent. It is well kept and has excellent manicured lawns. The building is very old but the inside is refurbished and very modern.

Beautiful brick palace. Next to the River. Great district for restaurants and cute shops. Unfortunately closed when we arrived. Walked around the inner courtyard where picnic tables were set up for outdoor events. Hope to return
