We were a bit nervous when we first arrived, as the hotel seemed to be on a main road, but it was really quiet, and the location was really convenient. It was a short drive from the gas lamp quarter and to other attractions. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was great. Parking is provided.
