My husband and I stayed here on a Friday night in July when we were participating in our forst triathlon at Fort Desoto. We were greeted by friendly staff at the frontdesk and warm cookies in the lobby (yummy!). When the staff found out we were doing a tri, they were very supportive and encouraging. Our room was bigger than I was expecting. The room had a mini-fridge and it was not full of bar stuff, so we could actually use the fridge. The only thing that was missing was an in-room safe. I don't usually use the provided bathroom products but tried out the lemon and sage body lotion. It smelled great and was very refreshing. The bed was comfortable, although neither of us slept well (nervous about our event).
The only parking option is valet, which was $12/night. I know this is typical of downtown area hotels so it didn't bother me, and at least it was only $12 (and not over $20 like larger cities). One of the valet workers actually told us we could park on the street for free, as there is usually plenty of parking available. We needed our car at 5am to head over to Fort Desoto and there was some guy walking outside that looked a little shady but otherwise, we felt safe.
Before checking out, we walked to a nearby restaurant (Pincho y Pincho.... great food). We did see some homeless people in the streets, but it wasn't a large amount and I did not feel unsafe.
Overall, we had a nice stay. The rooms were comfortable and we have no complaints. We got our price through a group discount and I though the price was fair. I would recommend this hotel and stay there again if I am ever back in town.
