    Clean and accommodating staff. Centrally located. Good value. Had a nice view. Rooms small but we were there to visit and site see. It has leased glass windows and is a bit dated but lots or character... a true boutique hotel.

    Yes, just park your car in the public lot that is recommended by the hotel. A two-three block walk and discounted by the hotel. Easy in and out.
