The rooms were modern and clean, with photos of the local area, and provided all that was needed for our 6 night stay. Staff was helpful and kind, and provided extra towels or help choosing a good pizza place for delivery on a rainy day. Fantastic location, and you can walk to the convention center and many restaurants. Morning breakfasts...
