This hotel is right downtown, with nice covered walkway over to art museum and other downtown attractions. This hotel is huge, didn't know it had conference center also. It is an older hotel, that has been renovated, and I loved the mix of old and new. We all enjoyed walking around the whole property. Check in was super friendly. We stayed in one of their PURE rooms - for those with allergy issues. Wanted to try it out. Room was fine. We ate breakfast in the hotel restaurant in the morning, and while a tad pricey, it was a neat experience, and the food was great.
