I've stayed at the Hotel Adria twice and will be staying there again in August. Modest hotel, reasonably cheap in a great little residential neighborhood walking distance to the tourist spots.

I'm wondering about the 440i GC, have one in order for August ED and have yet to see lease numbers. Was hoping there was a late June program to lock before Friday.
