I love hotels like this one because they retain the charm of their location while providing upgraded comfort. That said...
The building is obviously older, but the rooms are updated! Gorgeous shower and sink area, lovely curtains, and beautiful dark wooden furniture adorned our room. The bed was a bit firm for my taste, but I still got a good night sleep.
What I loved most though was the courtyard. It is BEAUTIFUL and very well taken care of. I constantly saw people outside cleaning the fountain, sweeping up leaves/debris that had fallen onto the ground, etc. My boyfriend and I spent a good deal of time every night in the courtyard having drinks from the bar and talking about things we had done/seen all day.
Staff is very pleasant and easy going, we actually got dropped off an hour and a half before check in time and the lady at the front desk was happy to check us in right away with no questions asked. Whenever we had questions, someone was always happy to help answer them. The cleaning guys and gals are also very friendly and will strike up a conversation with you as you pass by. We had fresh towels every day, which I haven't always had at other places and I definitely appreciated having that here!
Obviously this place is not for everyone. If you demand excessive luxury and require your hotel to have an exceedingly long list of extra services, then this place is not for you. But if you're just looking for a place to rest your head that won't break the bank and offer friendly, down to earth service while you're on your trip, don't hesitate to stay at this Best Western Plus.
Also, last but not least, the location of this hotel is outstanding. Close enough to all the action, but far enough away to not be bothered by it when you don't want to be. And Louis Armstrong park is right across the street!
