Elegant, comfortable, pricey w/nickle-&-diming

CAVEAT to recommendation: I'd recommend it mainly to those who need to stay in this location despite cost. I stayed at this hotel so I could walk to a state senate committee meeting in the morning instead of driving for well over an hour and parking. It was a worthwhile extravagance, since I could (at least in a short-term view) afford it. The interiors are spacious and generally impressive. All the staff members I dealt with were friendly and very helpful. The room was large, and while it had neither mini-fridge nor microwave, the staff supplied both for no extra charge. (I don't know whether there would have been such a charge if I hadn't been a Hilton Honors member, though at the low "blue" level.) The bed was very comfortable -- at least for me. I like a firm mattress, which the room had.
Unless one is a Hilton Honors member, wi-fi in the room costs $12 or $14 (I forget which) --or more, as the hotel buffet breakfast was $18 rather than the $14 announced on the website. Self-parking is $36 and valet parking is $42, both ridiculous IMHO. As for the breakfast, one can order a la carte -- but the combination of orange juice and breakfast would apparently run $9. . . . There's a restaurant about a block away, open at 7 a.m., with appetizing (from the menu) breakfasts, and I'd recommend going there, though in the end I was too lazy.
