Nice new hotel, but...
Nice new hotel in easy walking distance of the convention center and 6th Street, but... On the most direct route between the hotel and convention center or 6th Street is a homeless shelter. They
serve meals at night. The homeless do not go far from there during the day. This area outside of the shelter looks like a refugee camp. The shelter has been there much longer than the Holiday Inn Express. When Holiday Inn decided to build in this location, they should have looked at the location quite a bit closer since the convention center is probably a major reason for people staying in this hotel.
