When the cab driver doesn't even want to take you to a hotel, it's a concern. Got into the room and it was clean and the bed comfortable. Went for dinner, came back to 8 cop cars in the car park and the lobby blocked off. While it's one of the cheaper places to stay, it's not convenient to public transport and is in a seedy area. If staying here, I would recommend cabbing it to Union station. Overall though, it wasn't too bad provided you keep the doors locked and stay alert to any possible dangers.

It has moved a number of times over the years with its final move occurring in 1983 into what was once the B.F.Keith's Theatre. It has a Beaux-Arts facade and internally there are mahogany and velvet booths and four bars.

... carpeted with shoes from the victims of the death camps. Dusty, worn shoes with laces missing or heels torn off. Shoes that had once been worn by real people with real hopes and dreams. These were people whose lives had been cruelly ended because of the misguided and inhuman stance of Hitler on 'racial purity' and hatred for the Jews primarily. How surprised he may be to know that the True God has chosen the Jews as His people! And there will be a ...
... we needed to be back across town to collect our laundry by 5pm before the shop closed, we raced back with only 10 minutes to spare.
We hobbled back to the hotel for a quick bite to eat in their bar before deciding that as gluttons for punishment we could definitely manage some late night shopping. Back on public transport and all the way on the other side of town we chucked my shoes and bought 2 new pairs (the second was half price once I purchased ...
