This hotel is right in the midst of downtown next to City Hall, so everything is within walking distance.
The problem with that is if you are driving, it can be a little tricky to find with all the one-way streets downtown. We circled a few times before we figured it out.
The room was nice and clean and the shower was good, and they even had a Jacuzzi in our room which was nice.
Overall, I would stay here again only if I didn't drive in. As others have noted, the valet parking is $40 which is ridiculous. Upon checkout, there's also an $8 city parking tax, and with tip, you end up paying over $50 to park overnight!
The breakfast that was included was very good with many choices and a very friendly staff.
We had no problem with the valet parking....they greeted us right away upon arrival and calling for our car upon departure took only 10 minutes.
