We chose this hotel because of the proximity to the CoAmerica theatre. Growing up in Phoenix, I was somewhat apprehensive regarding location on Van Buren. We walked 2 blocks to the theatre with no issues. There were a few unfortunate souls in the area but no one bothered us. The street was well lit and the signage from the hotel was very bright. We walked back around 11:30. Several others were walking along also. As for the room, to be honest I thought it would be okay but we were delightfully surprised to find a very appealing room upon opening the door. Huge king bed, very nicely made up. A flat screen TV, wifi and immaculate bathroom with nice linens. There were soap and shampoo dispensers on tub wall. ( actually full)! Hair dryer, ironing board, microwave and mini refrigerator. We had a good nites sleep! Felt safe. And one of the best things is being able to check in at 1:00 rather than 3 or 4 like so many other places. We will definitely tell our concert going friends and you will see us again. Congratulations on your remodel and your staff that keep things the way they should be!
