I chose this due to the proximity to the ball park. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. We unfortunately arrived just as the night game has let out, so there a lot of traffic in the hotel and on the street. The road was blocked off, so we had to go around to get to the hotel, but...

Avoid room in front of the hotel as there is lot of noise from freeway. I had to ask my room to be changed, which they did (Rixa was awesome, with lot of sense of humor, at frontdesk). Breakfast is good. Shuttle is very convenient to reach nearby places. Wifi was really fast.

I was a late add to a live Sports Production crew, and could not book at their chosen hotel. So I booked here at the last minute. There is a 7-11 next door for quick-grab stuff, and a daylight-only cafe across the street. There is no restaurant onsite. But who goes to Crabtown to eat in the hotel? I must...

It was a very nice experience staying at this unique hotel. I found it by chance and by chance alone. From the outside it is quite difficult to see.
