The hotel is on Race between the * back side * of Penn Convention center and the express way.

It is a totally desolate area.

Unfortunately, also close by is the Catholic mission and the Mental Health services (Broad).

Walking towards the hotel from Chinatown around midday (lunch) can be nerve racking.

Dude now that you booked it just make the best of it get a taxi there and a taxi out you should be OK.

The area around your hotel is really not that bad. I have walked there plenty of times at different times of day and never have any nerves wrecked. Yes, it is not the most posh part of town and it does get a little empty at night, but it is not scary at all. I do not think you need to agonize over your hotel choice.
