I am planning a trip & am considering hotel locations (I'm not at specific hotels yet.)
The 3 parts of town I will probably be in the most are the historic district, the performing arts centers & museums. My probable budget will be approximately $200/night if that's feasible.
I will be driving so I need to find a place with parking close by & I am a 60 some female who will be traveling alone. My general thought is that the 1st day I'll do the Big Bus & the historic district, and days two & perhaps 3 I'll be going to museums with my nights either treating myself to the two "Iron Chef" restaurants in town or seeing classical or jazz music or theater (dramas or musicals, it doesn't matter.) I will also be seeing a show in the northern suburbs but I'm planning on doing a matinee & then heading straight home.
Any ideas as to areas I might find a safe area for a hotel that is close to what I want to do that is not an arm & a leg to stay in?
