Hotel for business meeting

Pros: See above.
Cons: The continental breakfast was somewhat disorganized.
Certainly the best hotel value that I've had recently. They are very good at the basics: room was clean, television and remote control worked, bed was comfortable, had hot water and water pressure, and the wake up call came at the correct time.

Free Parking

From my 4th floor room, you could hear street noise, but it was wasn't very loud and didn't keep me up.  The room didn't seem very clean -- the sink had water spots all around it, so no one had wiped it down from the last time it was used.  The shower didn't get much attention either, as there was a half-used bar of soap and soap wrapper in it.  The lower bed sheet was pushed into the pattern of the mattress and had a couple hairs on it, so I was trying to figure out how this happened.  There is a free hotel parking lot behind the hotel.  I parked on the street at a meter for free (until 9AM).  I went during 'fall break' so there was not much activity outside and the hotel bar only had six locals in it.  A patio connects to the bar which is probably nice it warmer weather.  Continental breakfast was free.  There is a local bank with an ATM across the street.
