    Typical city hotel. Great location with mall across the street. Just beware of the very arrogant director of security. He LOVES to harass the guests and threaten you with "I'm a retired state trooper" rant.

    I did not travel with kids. I saw no signage for a day care. However, when my kids were young various hotels we stayed in were able to supply sitters at cost. I suggest you call RSB to learn how they can help you.
