Help my dad have a good time in Wichita, KS?

Hey folks that live in or are familiar with Wichita, KS: my 64-year-old dad and his buddy need a hand. They're going to see Bela Fleck at the Orpheum
next month and would love a hotel recommendation for that night. The ideal would be driving in and parking at the hotel and not getting back in the car until they head back home. Is this doable for a reasonable price?

They'd love to stay some place within walking distance of the Orpheum but are concerned about safety on the walk back to the hotel afterwards. They're in good shape, so distance isn't really an issue, but they're also both suburban/rural guys so sorta paranoid about getting mugged or whatever. Is there a decently priced place close enough to the Orpheum to walk safely (and by decently priced, I'm talking $100-ish a night) or a place further away that has consistent taxi access there and back? (They both would prefer to be able to have beers at the show, hence the desire to not have to drive). I've never been to Wichita, so I'm kind of at an impasse as far as helping them. Thanks!
