I found this place after booking airfare. Beware: it looked far better pic wise than what is was, not a boutique hotel. the location was great for us(we had a car) but most people staying here walked to the convention center. about 1 mile. $76 nightly as opposed to $100 plus parking so that was my mantra! old but somewhere to sleep. small breakfast but there was breads/cereals/coffee. the 'never going back' clincher for me: homeless people hung around the front lawn area. 1 morning my hubs saw 1 eating breakfast & the man told the clerk, I have money in the bank so will be staying another night. so cheap, a place to sleep but the homeless also stay there. heads up!
