Rooms clean and comfortable. Free parking a plus. The added benefit - 3 walkable blocks to Restaurant Alma - top rated restaurant if you are a foodie. Café Alma next door convenient for breakfast and less substantial dinner - from the restaurant's kitchen, great deal

The rooms were very clean. The staff is very friendly and nice. The rooms have a kitchenette in them. My kids were treated good. They also have a very nice coffee, cappuccino, and tea machine in the lobby!! I loved it.

This was a great place that was less than a mile from Downtown, the University, light rail and numerous restaurants. After the fireworks downtown, we easily walked back to the hotel, via the stone arch bridge.

Good Afternoon Clarissa, We are about 2 miles from First Avenue. If you are attending an event at First Avenue it is easy to get a cab, uber, lyft or even take public transportation which is right outside of the hotel.
