This hotel was the perfect location for a two-night stay to visit a daughter and her boyfriend who live in the neighborhood -- and it was rather surprising, too. From the outside, I just don't think you would believe the hotel was as extensive as it turned out to be -- nice-sized fitness center and roomy breakfast room (coffee, tea, bananas and apples, four cereals, breads and pastries, and waffles). My room was definitely on the small and "cozy'' side, but it was just me and it was just for sleeping; the compactness was appealing rather than claustrophobic. The full-size bed was a little on the too soft side for me, but I bet most would like it. The view wasn't great, either -- the roof of the courtyard. No matter. I liked the tight but clean bathroom (note: just a stall shower, no bathtub), and the urban feel of the whole place. I also liked the price, which was noticeably less than most in-town hotels; a definite value, given the handy location with plenty to do in the area. I cut the bill two other ways, too: belonging to AAA saved me 10%; and I opted to park on a side street on my own and skip the $26/day charge (I arrived mid-afternoon and found a spot without trouble; it might get iffy later as area residents return home). This ain't the Ritz, but I wasn't looking for that. Even given the minuses, I'll be back for the overall value and convenience.
