I stayed here for one night and really enjoyed the hotel. We arrived at 2pm and were able to check into our room. The gal that checked us in did not offer us the cookies, and I forgot to ask...how does that happen? The entire room (bedroom, bathroom, sitting room and kitchen) were all very clean. The beds and pillows were very comfortable, however, the mattress on the sofabed was horrible and I don't know how my daughter slept on it - you could feel the springs and there was no cushioning at all, so I would not count on using the sofabed in the future. The kitchen was nice - a small, full-size fridge, sink, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, toaster and a few dishes. I would stay here again and shop at the Whole Foods about 8 blocks away to stock the fridge, but I would be sure to buy some paper plates and plastic ware as there was only one set of silverware. The blackout drapes were awesome and it kept the room so dark I will remember to bring a nightlight with me next time.
The hotel is close to the capitol and about 9-blocks from 6th street. We did not mind the walk at all as we enjoy the exercise and it really is not a bad walk. The hotel lobby had 3 different types of chilled, fresh fruit/vegetable water available - very nice on a warm day. We had a car, and thankfully a small one, as I had read reviews about the size of the parking garage (and spaces) under the hotel - it is small and so are the spaces! If I had my Suburban with me I would have opted for valet parking, which looked like it was located right outside the main entrance of the hotel, with limited spaces. Self-parking is $19 and like most hotels, unfortunately, they charge for wifi, so be sure to consider those extra costs when booking a room.
