what restaurants are within walking distance (no car), and how safe is the neighborhood?
I agree, the selection close by is not good. That being said, I used Uber and got very reasonable rides to highly rated restaurants downtown, and also took the light rail to a nearby mall that had more choices. I did walk during the day but would have been somewhat cautious and uncomfortable after dark.
There are very few in walking distance, but nothing that looked very good. The area is just OK..... being a retired Deputy Sheriff I would not let my family wonder area this area too much. The hotel is fine, the parking area opens to the street and anyone can walk righ into the garage. There are much better choices !!
