We had to fly to Jackson because our son is in the military and had emergency surgery. We were able to catch a ride from the airport, and therefore did not rent a car.
We were able to walk to the hospital everyday without any problems. You do have to cross through a large intersection but there are crosswalks. I didn't see any hotels that were closer. The sidewalks in some areas are a little funky but still walkable.
The buffet breakfast is wonderful! Eggs, waffles, sausage, fresh fruit, juice, bagels, muffins, and a coffee/tea/hot chocolate area available 24 hours a day. In the evening there is frsh popped popcorn and some kind of beer/wine -complimentary.
When our son was discharged from the hospital we brought him to the hotel overnight. They brought us an extra bed - it arrived to our room before we got upstairs. We then sat in the lobby for hours near the fireplace enjoying popcorn and hot chocolate. I can't ever remember enjoying a hotel lobby as much as we did there. Also, it was wonderful to see our son finally able to relax after being hospitalized.
For supper, there is a Wendy's right in back of the hotel that you can walk to in a minute. Also the hospital has a Subway, McDonald's and a Chick Filet (sp?). There's also a hip Italian place just past the hospital called Sal's or something similar to that.
The staff was all very helpful and friendly. It may be a tad more expensive than other branded hotels but it's seriously worth the couple extra bucks to stay here.
