Our room was on the top floor, in a corner and away from other rooms. But you could hear the people in the hall, the tv in the room next door and the traffic outside.
The room was good sized and the bed comfortable. The breakfast was only okay, with 2 waffle makers, biscuits and gravy (eh), cereals, fruits, etc. Typical mid-class hotel breakfast.
As others have stated, it is within walking distances to many places downtown, including the capital, city hall, and convention center. 4 miles from the Cal Expo.
