The hotel, being new, is still in pretty nice condition. I will definitely give kudos to the beds: they are very comfortable.
It's nice to have hot breakfast in the morning. I hope they add the ability to make waffles. The eggs were a bit spongy, but I never have very high expectations for continental bkfsts anyway. Overall the brkfst was definitely a plus.
The rooms are nice. Great big flat screen TVs. Very nice.
My only complaint is that the wireless doesn't work. My first room was on the fourth floor. The front desk told me they were having trouble getting reception to their 3rd and 4th floors, so I changed rooms to the 1st floor. They gave me a room all the way on the end - no reception. As nearly as I can tell, you basically have to be in the lobby or in an adjacent room to get wireless. This was particularly frustrating for me because I prefer to make my international calls via VOIP.
This should be an easy fix for the hotel. I hope they make the fix before my next visit, because I will be back.
Staff was very friendly.
