Stayed here for a nearby conference. Short walk to convention center with no crossing of traffic. However, try to arrive before dark. Is a bit challenging to find the entrance and parking during peak evening hours. NIce looking building inside and out. Clean with helpful staff. Food for breakfast was great, changing a little each day. Managers reception fine except double check the times. Found 2 different times posted. My TV kept losing signal which was frustrating. The nice desk guy came quickly to reset it but on third ocassion I was trying to get ready and didn't call him. Also, I found that although all 3 exercise machines in fitness center have individual TV screens, only one has a jack for the headphones. The volume didn't work so I had to just watch the news and try to figure out what was going on. Wish they had room for another treadmill. A marathoner beat me to it the second day and I was stuck with the stationary bike. Lots of great restaurants in walking distance is one of the great things about this location. It was pricey but typical for hotels this close to major venues.
