I really enjoyed staying at this hotel. The location is close to the interstate but still in the downtown area. The walk to river street is about 10 minutes but I did not mind the walk because there are plenty of other shops and restaurants around if you don't want to walk to river street. I had my dog with me, so the green space outside the hotel is great. Parking can be a little crazy, because there is limited parking around the hotel, but I was able to find a spot everyday. Also, there is valet parking for a fee if there are no parking spaces. I will definitely stay here in the future.
