My husband and I are planning to stay in Topeka for a couple of days so I'm looking for a hotel. I was looking at places close to downtown because that's where most of what we want to see is. I'm a little weirded out because when checking out reviews -- on this and other sites -- of even the nicer hotels, there are always one or two reviewers who complain about not feeling safe or how scary some of the surrounding neighborhoods are. So I was wondering if there are better areas of Topeka to stay in, areas to avoid, or if all of this is just a few overly sensitive people confusing older with unsafe. Thank you!
