This hotel was the official location of the yearly gothic music convention, Convergence 18. I was greeted by Clint, who asked if I would be checking in before I got in line for the registration desk. He walked me to the desk and had me checked in within minutes, card-key in hand, with provided map and simple directions to the elevators. While attending the convention I utilized both public transit and cabs with little to no effort at reasonable prices. The bell-hops knew the best cabbie in town, 'Old Joe', and readily hailed him. The king-sized bed was very comfortable and housekeeping was flawless.
The neighborhood this hotel is located situated in is on 'Main Street', which is not an automotive thoroughfare at all. It's used for trolley service and has wide, brick pedestrian walkways and many trolley stations. I never heard the trolleys. They're whisper-quiet, but the street is heavily populated with downtrodden/homeless people, many of whom panhandle near the stations. The hotel's front entrance faces Pearl Street, which offers wide concrete sidewalks and access to many bus-stops. Stores and services nearby tended to close down fairly early, as the neighborhood is a business district rather than a tourism/retail-oriented area. There is a quirky, modern neighborhood to the west with many small entrepreneurial restaurants featuring ecclectic cuisine, and the hotel offers an excellent menu for those who do not care to venture out.
