The hotel was easy to find coming off of the interstate. Check in was a breeze. The front desk staff didn't tell us where to park and we were unhappy to see it was a couple blocks away. We loaded back in the car to go park. Once we got to the garage, the attendant told us we needed a pass to hang on the rear view mirror to show they validated our parking so we had to turn around and go get one. We went back to the hotel where I was dropped with some of the bags while my husband got the pass and parked the car. It would have been nice for the front desk employees to have given us a pass when we asked about parking.
When we got to the room, it was very nice. Everything was in great working order and looked fresh and clean. The shower didn't drain efficiently and I ended up standing in a half full tub but other than that the room was great.
The complementary breakfast was good. I just wish they had some kind of potato included. Coffee was good and lots of different kinds of cream were available. There was a nice place outside to sit and people watch.
The walk to Beale St was around 15 minutes, but I would suggest taking the trolley. It's $1 to ride and will drop you literally across the street from the hotel. The neighborhood is quiet with lots of hotels along the trolley line. I didn't see many vagrants and felt safe even when walking at 2am.
We had a great experience and will be back.
