Don't be alarmed by my review title. This hotel was GREAT. We really enjoyed our stay, and the hotel was clean and upscale. Loved the location, and especially loved the FREE bike loner program. We were able to bike to the capital in no time along the beautiful bikeway (ie we never had to tangle with cars on the road). But ... don't make the mistake of trying to park across the street in the parking deck. I parked there and was basically accosted by a guard for "not walking out the correct exit." The parking deck is not associated with the hotel. The deck allows parking but they get MAD if you walk out on the side facing the hotel. The incident scared me so bad that I left the garage (after paying $7 for parking there for a mere 10 minutes, 9 of which I was being yelled at by a guard who was pointing a GUN at me!) On the weekend, parking is ample on the street and I had no trouble parking for free.
