Convenient location - no frills
Convenient location within easy walking distance to Convention Center, restaurants, and light rail. Small rooms, small bed. Older hotel. Rooms were a little hot and couldn't find a way to adjust temperature. Also, radiator clanged and banged at night. Shower temperature went from warm to hot to cool to warm by itself.

Historic charm
Charming and well located. Sounds from the hall and rooms next to me carried into my room rather well, but there weren't too many distractions. The bathroom was tiny but big enough. The shower was simple and easy to figure out.
