Convenient

Nice front desk staff, both night and day shift. Old building with slow elevator, but using the stairs is no problem. A little miffed about paying $23 to park outside with a room of $169. Room itself was nice enough, with a sitting area. Cleaning staff was very courteous and no rush in the AM. Continental breakfast, the usual fare.
