It really is a must see tourist spot, but for us locals, it's just a crowded mess and you can't avoid it if you're hitting a show. Expect to see tons of people!

Don't know why anyone would stay there. It's overpriced, overcrowded, and noisy.

I stayed half a block away at the Sanctuary hotel. Far enough to be away from the noise but less than a five minute walk to get there.
