Pro: The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms are tiny and old. Cons: The bathroom shower was too small to turn around in! We had a room on the street and the noise was ridiculous. Someone was playing music until 4 a.m. I know the hotel can't control that, but it contributed to the overall experience unfortunately. Again, super...

Stayed during the ESRI User Conference from Sunday through Friday. The rooms (had two adjoining rooms) were clean and all amenities were in place each day. They were a bit spartan and cramped, but I got a good rate, so it was hard to complain. The beds were very comfortable. The A/C worked very well, which was very welcome with...
