They swiped my credit card even though I already paid for the room and the $227 is still pending !

Nice new hotel. Friendly staff. Easy access and parking. Very satisfied.

No place to hang towels and no room on night table.

The Cap City Diner at the front of the property has excellent food and service. Very convenient to downtown.

Friendly staff, beautiful hotel. I loved our room!

Jeff, Each and every guest must provide a credit card for incidental hold at check in, no exceptions. This charge drops off 3-5 business days after checkout and is a standard procedure for hotels. We would be happy to further explain if you have more questions. We hope you otherwise enjoyed your stay and will return!
