When we arrived we had to get into the hotel to have them open the off street parking door---so we had to park around the corner (1 way streets everywhere here) and we had to walk 1 blocks to hotel- during the walk we had many people approach us with drugs IN hand to sell and asked to 'watch yo car'....we rushed to get garage open by hotel desk clerk and parked and then were locked inside the hotel...! The staff was friendly and very helpful. The rooms were quiet- because we were the only ones on our floor. The doors are paper thin as are the walls though. It is a hotel of 'interior rooms' where the windows face an interior hallway- which given the area, we were fine with. There is a pizza hut 2 doors down which is convenient. There is air conditioning in some rooms (make sure you ask for one); the bathroom is decent but has a bit of a musty smell. The mini fridge wasn't turned on to be used- nice flat screen tvs and wifi. Again--- the redeeming quality here is the service. They helped us to print off our return flight tickets, and made us breakfast to go at 3:30 am when we had to leave for our international flight. Very nice staff. We chose this place as it was close to the airport and we had an early flight.
