Nice hotel in a great location. Very friendly staff. Rooms could use some updating. Perhaps newer coffee machines like a Keurig or nespresso. Just seemed old and in need of an update. Regardless. Very clean and quiet. I’d stay here again

Yes street parking but it's only on Sunday. You need to have parking permit to park on the street. The parking lot you have to be careful because if you go over the time they will charge you a fee.
