My wife and I stayed at City Flats Hotel for an event held a few blocks away. The hotel is in the city's clean and safe downtown and within walking distance of countless bars, restaurants, museums, and other attractions. Our room was spotless and very modern. My wife raved about the soft sheets and liked the lack of carpeting (cork floors). Bathroom and shower were great. Bar, lobby, and restaurant were all nice and gave us a chance to have a drink at night and a great breakfast in the morning sitting in the open and airy restaurant. Negatives included rather dim lighting (like many hotels), some mechanical noise, not much of a view, and lack of a coffee maker for the morning. Ramp parking is available for $16 per night, but we parked on the street for free. Everybody that we talked to was friendly and seemed to take a lot of pride in the hotel.
