Though no dedicated parking, nearby free parking was easy to find (the front desk took me out to find the first one). There was not that much to do in the immediate vicinity.
Pros: The architecture was amazing. A combination of old (built around the town wall) and modern. The old stone work, including visible pieces of the granite mountain that is unmoved by man, made it interesting and rustic. Modern conveniences, like elevators
Cons: There was nothing that I did not like. The only things preventing it from top scores was that the room was a little small, had a table that was too short to use easily as a desk, and the staff spoke very little English. That said, the staff was friendly
