    We stayed for 3 nights last fall, and slept like babies - the room was very comfortable and clean, and so were the beds. Our room faced the street, but we had no issues with noise either.

    Yes, in nearby parks _ _ but not on hotel property. There are many parks to choose from located within 1 or 2 blocks. All are very accessible, have lots of benches, and no vagrants. Have a nice stay. /George
