Just how close I was to the capital and ut
The location is perfect.
The hotel is overpriced. You are REQUIRED to use the valet parking at $14 a night. Between the time the valet took our car and we kicked it up a few hours later, a large scratch was left in one our car doors. The rooms don't have refrigerators and are quite small for the nightly cost.
Worked better than I thought that breakfast was in a room across the parking lot from the lobby. I liked being just a few steps from the Capitol building since I hadn't been inside as an adult. The location was close enough to downtown to walk (5 mins to 6th Street), but quite a bit further to go to the more adult area of 2nd Street. Staff was friendly and after my visit quickly corrected a mistake in my billing. Worked great that I had pre-paid via Kayak and had no problems getting my room immediately. Breakfast was included (hard to find) but be aware the only protein was hardboiled eggs and there was very little fruit. At least there were (make your own) waffles!
The construction noise across the street was not very conducive to sleeping late on the weekend. There was a huge gap under the door where light came in and A/C went out - like a motel instead of a hotel. The parking was mandatory valet @ 12.99/day and I don't remember that being listed online (at Kayak). Of course there wasn't another close place to park so I guess it was better than $20/night like some places downtown. This place got very crowded on Labor Day weekend, so check in and check out were kind of crazy.
Nice beds and pillows
Breakfast was limited
The location is close enough to walk to downtown, but far enough away to not be disturbed by late nighters in the streets.
This hotel is an $80 a night hotel at best. I was charged over $220. You are forced to use the valet parking which was an extra $14 per vehicle which I didn't realize when I booked. The room had mold in the showers and there were several hairs stuck to the wall in the bathroom/sink area. On top of everything, I was charged twice for the room after a checked my bank statement due to a mistake at the front desk. The same exact thing happened to a friend of ours staying in another room. We received no phone calls to notify us of the mistake. Will not be going back again. You're better off staying at the Super 8 down the road. Thank you very little.
It was fairly clean
It was noisy, but it wasn't excessive
central position, helpful staff
pay to park, should have been added online when booking no restaurant. fair breakfast
I needed to leave early as I was concerned for my saftey. It appeared the mainteance man was following me to my room. I did not go directly to my room as he was entering and exiting other rooms near mine and when I went down the hall he was right behind me. Maybe this was coincedential but it gave me serious concern.
I only stayed l night instead of 4 nights as it was terrible. I liked the location very much.
The acoustics are so terrible that one cannot sleep due to the noise. You can literally hear someone urinating, talking loudly,etc.
