Stayed here recently for a convention being held in town. The hotel is a few blocks walk from the main downtown area with little nearby. There are 2 restaurants within a block. The hotel was certainly adequate with clean, comfortable rooms and attentive staff. The beds had great bedding and were very comfortable. Some other details could use some attention, however. The headboard in our room was leather and was not just worn but cracked and peeling. There were many noticeable areas of wear on the walls, peeling wallpaper and our toilet appeared to have been rodded leaving behind permanent marking from the equipment.
The staff were very helpful providing area information and taxis. But beware, the taxis in this city are out to make a big buck. Traveling a little more than a mile cost on average $10-$13, 2 times of what you'd pay in Chicago! Why didn't I just walk? With 90 degrees and about that much humidity I didn't want to show up sopping wet!
Last I heard this hotel was being bought out and renovated - I'd wait for the new updated version to stay here again.
