This is in the middle of what appears to be a new area being built up. There is an excellent restaurant across the street called AZUL that you can walk to in about 90 seconds, and a few others next to it you can chose from. However despite the upscale and new-looking neighbors, the hotel looks like it could use a touch-up. The front door is the irritating single door that must be pulled open, instead of the wide sliding doors. There is only one elevator. And the king room was spartan, with no reading chair, for example. But they are working on it. When I stayed in June 2014, the breakfast area was cordoned off for renovations, and the lobby floor was torn up. So it's getting better.
The staff was very friendly and accommodating. For example, o make up for the lack of a breakfast area, they offer to bring a warm breakfast to your room at a time of your choosing, and you can supplement it with the usual cold offerings and DIY waffle, which are set up in a guest room on the first floor near the lobby. They also have 10% off coupons for the nearby Waffle House during the renovation.
