The good Is: Great location in arts district. Good rooms. Nice staff. That is the good part.
The bad is:
1-Dangerous feeling right outside lobby area late at night due to loitering drunks from local bars. Even though lobby door was locked, it meant nothing as I witnessed repeated entrance of loiterers/bar patrons from street who were able to enter uncontested by squeezing in with legitimate hotel guests. As the group from the street searched for restrooms (or whatever) uncontested, they were loud and made a point to share their "charm" with hotel guests who were minding their own business. Made the lobby area, especially the entrance feel unsafe.
2- Ridiculous prices for parking. $43 dollars per night for valet. No real alternatives so it feels like you are at their mercy with no affordable alternatives. What kind of hotel does not negotiate some kind of parking deal with local parking companies?
Summary: This hotel has potential if they will just hire 2 good night time security guards to keep the entrance/sidewalk area clear and provide at least ONE affordable parking option. This could be a VERY good hotel! I really hate to give it a poor rating but a feeling of poor security standards anywhere in a hotel immediate warrants a "poor" rating in my opinion.
