So this hotel used to be a jail, ok, and the front of it facing the street still has the old bars in the windows, other than that you don't get any sense of it being a former jail. The inside is completely modernized and the rooms had all the normal items you could anticipate finding. The top floor room where we stayed had very tall ceilings and no smell of mold or anything. The only bad thing would be that the shower has a limit on the level of hot water that you could turn the handle too and it seemed to always be right at the middle of hot/cold. The other issue with the shower was that since it had the option to remove the handle from the attachment, it moved around and required constant readjustment. AC was cold and the noise was acceptable. Outside noise was not anything outside of what you would expect to find downtown in a big city. It is about 4 blocks to the river walk access but that nothing and you get to site see along the way too. Parking is interesting as you park across the street in a lot and unless you join or are a member of Priority Club rewards program it will cost you $10 per night. The staff can sign you up right at the front desk however and wave that fee. Breakfast is great, it has all the normal things you would want to eat, there are not a lot of tables however so it might be a trip back to your room to eat it, depending on the time you visit the lobby.
