Our room was in the original building, impressive. Employees go the extra mile to check on your stay and answer questions. I had 3 kids with me, who also were impressed with history of hotel. A great stay and an even better history lesson. :)

The Intermodal Station downtown would be several blocks and about 20 minutes on foot. Aside from walking, most guests use a taxi service or a ride app on their phone. It is about a 7 minute drive.
