          Yes, the water is a block or so away. Plenty of sidewalks. We did not look for a hiking trail.

          Who is the artist that is featured throughout the hotel? I believe it is a female artist. There were paintings of homes displaying flags such as the USA, U of M and IU flags. Would love to contact her for a possible commission piece.
