This is an older hotel that is located within walking distance from the convention center. I thought the neighborhood was fine. It's a quick walk to Starbucks (which you'll need for the internet - read below) and FedEx Office. Front door and desk staff were extraordinarily nice. Oddly the cleaning staff felt unfriendly. Parking was $19 which seemed a bit... More

The staff at the hotel are reasonably friendly, the rooms are clean. Housekeeping seems to do a good job. The only problem with this hotel is that is in an awful neighborhood. You will not feel safe walking around at night. The rates are reasonable but if you're staying here for something other than a conference at the hotel I... More

Nice hotel with a shuttle to all downtown sites. First night we ate at the hotel and the food was wonderful.. Super nice staff.
