I stayed here on business, and stayed at the government rate. So the price of $87/night was about right for this hotel. However, I see that they ask $150/night from the general public - I wouldn't pay that for this hotel.
The rooms are average in every way. No major defects, nothing incredibly nice. They do have flat panel TVs with some HD channels.
I did interact with the staff a few times. All of the time I found them very friendly and helpful. The concierge was knowledgeable and friendly as well.
I felt that everything in the hotel was overpriced. This is probably because the hotel is not close to much in the way of food. You have to hop on a trolley or take a cab to get to the two areas in town where there are good food options. In the hotel gift shop, a 20oz bottle of pop is $3.00. Candy bars are $2. Ridiculous. The breakfast bar, while very nice, was $15.95. The lunch buffet was $12.95. Why the breakfast bar cost more, I have no idea.
They also have a sort of a la carte option across from the hotel dining area. Here, a "chicken biscuit" breakfast sandwich is $4.00. The whole sandwich was about half the size of an Egg McMuffin. It was laughable and a terrible value.
The hotel does not offer free WiFi in rooms - its $9.95/day. They do offer free WiFi in their business area - which is consequently extremely busy during normal hours. In today's age, I expect free WiFi in my room.
All in all, my stay outside of the overall expense of everything, was fine. I would just try another hotel on my next stay due to the price of everything - jacked up meal prices, WiFi, a bottle of coke - it all adds up making the value of your stay abysmal.
