This is a great hotel if you are doing a photo shoot or ghost hunting. It is not super practical for families. We were accosted by hobos as we got out of the car to check in. The hotel overlooks a hobo park on one side and a bunch of alley ways on the other. The hotel seems like a place that would be haunted, dark, old, dank! The price was similar to the Embassy Suites and did not include any of the perks like free breakfast and a good location. We were duped into staying here by friends of ours who thought we'd be impressed....NOPE! The tub is super deep and my husband almost hurt his family jewels getting in and out of it. There is a fridge full of over-priced stuff that, if moved, will be automatically charged to your room.
On the upside:The décor is very pretty. The tub would be good if you are into taking bubble baths at hotels. The bathroom overlooked the state capital, which was fun to see as I was showering.
Coming from the Embassy Suites near the river the night before, this place was a down-grade.
