If you have tickets to see a concert at the Ford Amphitheatre, this is the hotel for you! We stayed here while attending the Dave Matthews Band concert on August 12th, and although the hotel is nothing spectacular, it isn't bad either, and considering you can walk from your hotel room and be in your seat at the Ford Amphitheatre within around 15 minutes (that is if you don't stop at the concession stands first), we found this hotel absolutely perfect for our needs. Obviously we were not the only ones who felt this way either, based on the number of fans also staying at this hotel.
Our room was on the first floor. Normally not a big fan of first floor rooms, but this one was different. We had 15ft ceilings, and a seperate kitchen, including stove/oven, microwave, and fridge. I think my first apartment was around the same size as our room! Wouldn't want to spend a great deal of time here, but for a night or two, I have no complaints.
