This spot is about 3 miles north of downtown, and you can usually drive and to and from during commute in about 30 minutes on the streets.
This place is all about location, with lots of restaurants, stores, shops and a safe area.
very nice staff
clean rooms with decent, but very average decor
good breakfast (bagels, breads, pastries, coffee)
lots of neighborhood restaurants and stores at your doorstep
Hotel is older, no double-pain windows, A/C units are old, bathrooms have no vents
Rooms are on small side
Not very close to trains
3 miles north of downtown (traffic can be nerve wrecking at commute)
no free parking, but I have some tips on that below,
no LCD televisions and few cable channels (if you were raised by a television like me)
wi-fi is typical hotel slow (but fast enough for very basic browsing)
Yes, lots of cons, but if you enjoy eating out, having Starbucks, Walgreens, Trader Joe's, boutique shops at your doorstep then this is your best bet. I had business in the medical district, which is about a mile our so, west of downtown, so my morning commute consisted of easily avoiding highway traffic and driving about 30 minutes to and from work.
If you need to park you can either pay $22 for daily in/out valet, $20 for daily no in/out garage around the corner, or you can pay $1.50 per hour on the street; between 9pm and 8am (unless otherwise noted) parking is free. There always seemed to be a spot, although I did have to walk about a block one night.
