Very nice hotel in heart of downtown by capital. Everything was in walking distance for the most part, the hotel suites were super roomy and nice. They have valet for $25/night if you need parking, which is reasonable for downtown overnight access. Would happily stay...More

The building is just beautiful, and the rooms are huge, very clean and well decorated. The staff is also very nice. I missed a bigger mirror in the room, though (there wasn’t a full-body sized mirror 😕). Will definitely stay there again!

There is no free parking for this hotel. I parked on the street (for free) and had to move the car by 08:00. The hotel has valet parking only, under the hotel, for $20 each night.
