Such a wonderful place
We loved this location. Right next to the capitol building. The most amazing part were the floor to ceiling slider that opened to overlook the park.

The lobby is gorgeous. The rest of the hotel is very ancient and outdated. It didn’t feel clean didn’t feel comfortable didn’t feel relaxing. We will never stay there again.

Very Good8.0
Decent Enough For A Couple Of Days
The only reason I stayed here was that I had predefined government expense maximums. I've stayed here 2 different times. As for the location, it was a great spot. Free parking, free breakfast, near sights and walking distance to restaurants. Room was clean and comfortable. As for the hotel, it is old and dated. AC/Heating Controls don't have a thermostat. Rooms with sliding glass doors are drafty. If you have a view of the lake, remember to close the blinds during the day as it can heat up the room and AC doesn't work well. Carpet needs to be changed throughout.

Great room, but bed way too soft. I will stay here again, but skip the premium room. The mid grade room was much better.
