After more than two hours of research (Nov. 29, 2013) looking at about 15 hotels, my daughter came up with her top 3 choices. We removed much of her research comments such as prices, reviews and any other information that is time dependent. The comments below do not show our hidden requirements of location near the Dam and the central location close to sight seeing locations.
