We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a wedding party. They had gotten a block of rooms for wedding guests, so we got a discounted rate, which was nice. B/c parking was an additional $28 a day. There was a self-serve parking option but it only saved you $3. No free wifi either. This irked me more than paying for parking.
The lobby is loud, like a nightclub, and has like laser light things on the walls. But it is clean and modern. Check in went fast and the staff was friendly.
The floors are rooms are much more traditional than the modern lobby. Our room had blue striped wallpaper with some ugly drapes, and the bathroom had red striped wall paper. Interesting. But the room was BIG and the bathroom was HUGE. Very clean all around. Plenty of room for the 4 of us and our bags and wedding gear.
The hotel is directly across from the capital building, on what I'd call the "backside" of the mall, so not a super central location, but a short walk to everything.
