The only plus about this place is the staff. They are great. I stayed here while attending a wedding. There is a bus stop at the front of the hotel that attracts alot of riff raff and crowds. Since we were here on the weekend, the only open places were: a CVS 5 blocks away, Forever 21 next door, McDonalds, Subway, and a Mexican place 4 blocks away. Short story: while walking to CVS on Saturday morning at about 9AM for stuff for my wife, I was asked by a decently dressed, drunk man for money. After declining, he then started screaming profanity at me and followed me for a block... Security and police are non-existent downtown on the weekends and it was a very unsafe environment. The rooms here are decent, but the blinds do not fully shut (or open), so if you plan on sleeping in on a Saturday, forget it. All in all, will never be back....oh yea, and I basically had to perform a miracle to get the lobby bar to serve me a beer at 4:30PM (bar doesn't open till 5PM)....no room service here either.
