Located literally across the street from popular hangouts with outdoor seating. It gets a little crazy at night on the weekends. But I had a room on 7th floor and didn't hear a thing. My room was quiet, clean and comfortable. It was relatively modern and large. Got a queen bed. Convention center in the hotel was very convenient. The gym is a little small and dated, but does the job. They also have a spa and pool. The lobby 'bar' is very small. Had a really good dinner there. And breakfast buffet was adequate.
