I hate to bash a hotel, but had several complaints.
First there were numerous things wrong with my room. The hook on the bathroom door to hand towels was almost totally unscrewed when I checked in, and looked like it would fall out. I unscrewed it and put it on the sink, and there it sat for two days. Also the built in surge protector outlet on the desk was burnt out and inoperable. It's an older property and looks like it could use some updating.
Second I ate at the breakfast dining room twice - the first day ordered a corn beef hash which was totally unlike any corn beef hash I've ever gotten, more fried cold cuts on top of big chunks of potato. Second day, I went early to get some breakfast buffet so that I could do some work. It was scheduled to open at 6am, but it took until 620 before everything was totally out.
Third location was a bit off the beaten track - a few long blocks from downtown on one side and German Brewery district on the other. Across from the court complex. Not too much going on around there.
Next time will book closer to the capital building.
