The hotel was very nice, however the neighborhood seems to be on the decline. We parked our car on the street behind the hotel (parking in front of the hotel is tough to get and on a very steep hill). It took us two trips to unload our car and within this short time period our window was smashed and a camera stolen from the car! Several other cars were victimized as well, some were keyed or mirrors shattered. In broad daylight! The local neighborhood watch representative told us they think a deranged teenager is on the loose.
Anyhow the lady of the house was very nice helping us deal with the police and rental car company, the room was clean and spacious, the free wireless internet was a nice surprise. Also the hotel is within 10 minutes walk of two subway stations and also of a stop for the tourist tour bus that goes around the city.
