This hotel was the headquarters hotel for a conference I was attending. It was adjacent to a music venue, two shopping areas, and a lot of eateries. Although we only ventured out once due to the learning schedule, everything was in walking distance. I wish the rate had been a bit more reasonable for the conference attendees, but everyone was friendly and service was wonderful. If you have not tried the App which you can actually check in with - I highly recommend it. I was able to just walk up and get my key while everyone else was standing in line.
