    Super Nice hotel! My wife and I loved it here. The standard room was really small but we made due with it. They have a starbucks downstairs which is really convenient. Look for deals and grab up a reservation if the price is right!

    I've stayed there on many occasions, and I've never seen a breakfast buffet. Maybe they have one, but my guess is you have to pay extra. There is a restaurant in the main lobby.

    No, not at all. The blue line take you to Monroe and we are a few blocks away. You can transfer from the blue line to the red line at Monroe but you are so close at that point that the short walk makes more sense.
