Check-in was a breeze, and it included cookies. Our room was across from the elevator, so I expected noise and commotion outside our door, but it never materialized. Everything was clean, clean, clean! As per my usual routine, I wipe surfaces, remote, switches, etc with wipes before settling in, and the wipes were clean too! I loved the triple sheets, and the bed was unusually comfy. Even though I toss and turn the first night of a stay, I slept soundly. It was super cold out and we hated the thought of going out to eat, so the desk clerk gave us a selection of menus that delivered to our room. The next morning we had the usual ho-hum breakfast--ready-made 'omelets', sausage, cereal, etc--but it was plentiful and the attendants watchful. We needed transportation to the Capitol and the shuttle was convenient, timely and fun. (The driver played a cashless version of the game "Cash Cab" on the way downtown.) We left our cars in the hotel lot, and even though we weren't staying a second night, the shuttle came to the Capitol to pick us up at the end of the day. The staff was accomodating, helpful, and made our stay very enjoyable.
