My wife and I stayed here for the First Light Half Marathon. This hotel was located at the start and only a few blocks from the finish. It was a very nice hotel to stay at and a great value for a downtown hotel.
There is plenty of parking around the hotel but you will be charged per day to park in the hotel lot. The hotel gives you a pass to put on the dash of your car.
Check-in was quick and friendly. The room had a slight cleaning smell when we first went in but it wasn't bad and dissipated during our stay. The HVAC was quiet. Internet speed was very slow but adequate for email and browsing. I had some skips when streaming SiriusXM. The High Definition TV did not have high definition channels - only standard definition.
There is a nice bar on the top floor with great views. It is quite large but not that active when we were there (it was early and the night before the marathon.) It did smell a bit smokey so I assume smoking is still allowed in bars in this area but I didn't see anyone smoking.
You are a few blocks from Royal St. and a lot of nice restaurants. Easy walking distances from a lot of places to go to eat.
Overall this a nice hotel for a great price.
