Stayed at the Eldon for one night on business. As most reviewers have noted, the Eldon is near the convention center and in an area "in transition." Take heed--the boarded-up properties are actually owned by various hotel chains--not dilapidated public safety risks! The Eldon (a former condo bldg) just set up shop there first. In the day you're fine--but definitely should look into getting a cab to the hotel in the evening.
Now on to the actual stay...
The first thing I noticed was how nice the staff was to me. Friendly and speedy check-in. I had a freedom queen room on the 5th floor. The room was amazing--definitely reminiscent of a high class condo. Spacious and modern--with an open kitchen layout and comfy sofa and flat screen in the living room. The bed was extremely comfortable. The room had a walk -in closet with plenty of space. The shower was fantastic from the creative shower head design to the water pressure! High-end toiletries were a plus. The workout room on the ninth floor was really clean but small--only a few cardio machines but no free weights or water cooler. The free breakfast was okay--just cereals, pastries, juices, and a coffee maker with various options.
All in all a good stay. If you're going to a convention center conference or find a good deal at this hotel--it's definitely worth it.
