Stayed for business 2 nights - pulled into the parking garage and the device read 'Full'. There is a person in one of the exit booths - I explained I was a hotel guest and he raised the arm so I could park - there were limited spots available. This is an older hotel but clean and well maintained. The skywalk from the parking garage will take you to the 2nd floor of the hotel - just follow the signs to the lobby; the lobby is small and on the 2nd floor, by the bar area. If you have kids and want to use the pool, ask for the 2nd floor rooms right off of the pool - you open your door and boom, there is the pool. I stayed on the 7th floor facing Broadway - the street noise wasn't too noticeable and the church steeple lit up at night is very pretty. I would recommend a small fan to drown out any street noise. The room had 2 double-beds - they were comfortable, a night stand between the 2, a desk, a dresser w/ a microwave and flat screen TV. There are limited outlets - none available to charge anything on the nightstand between the beds. The bathroom had a shower / tub - clean and everything worked fine. The hotel is a block from the Mayo civic center and if weather is bad - connected via skywalks. There is a nice river walk between the hotel and civic center. As a rewards member, I was provided a $10 off a $25 bill in the restaurant. There is no complimentary breakfast or evening beverages. Good place for a well-maintained basic needs lodging.
