I loved my stay at the Citizen and would recommend this place to lay your head if you're traveling to the state Capitol.
From the moment you arrive, everyone from the valets to the various staff walking around greet you with a warm hello. I was in some beat up travel clothes, so I thought I was gonna get the Julia Roberts treatment from Pretty Woman being in such a swanky hotel, but it was quite the opposite. Everyone was super friendly. I had the pleasure of having Kristin check me into my room and loved that she gave me the options of where to stay. I'm sure all the rooms are great, but she asked what kinds of preferences I had; being okay with noise from the adjacent concert in the park, I opted for the high room with a view.
The rooms are a little on the small size, but decked out in some pretty amazing decor. The bed is super comfy and there is a desk and a flat screen for your entertainment. Wifi is not included and comes at a cost of $9.95 per day for 1mbps or $15.95 for 2mbps. Either is pretty slow, but adequate enough for web surfing and replying to e-mails. I wouldn't try to stream any video files or download photo files as it would probably take forever.
Located within walking distance of pretty much everything, you're surrounded by some great restaurants, coffee shops and even the park across the street that seems to have a lot of cool entertainment on the weekend during the summer. On this particular Fri/Sat, they had a free concert series going on full of great tunes, food trucks and other vendors to choose from. It ended at 9PM, so it wasn't an all night rager, but a lot of people showed up to support local culture in the community - it was super cool.
The hotel does have a restaurant downstairs that's a little on the high side, but if you're feeling adventurous, there are a ton of dining options in the area just a short walk away.
This is definitely going to be my hotel destination the next time I return to the city. Everything about my stay was just great and I had no complaints.
