Since my last review of this property almost 2 years ago there has been a major renovation to the hotel and more specifically the rooms. The rooms are now modern with the appropriate features you would expect in 2013. The beds are very comfortable and aside from a couple of housekeeping issues during my business stays here its definitely above average to very good for room quality. The restaurant continues to impress with servers that have always been friendly with a very comfortable setting for a very good meal and a drink.
A couple items continue to boggle my mind. First I would say NO improvement to the wifi at this property. It is slow or non existent in most areas of the hotel. These concerns are confirmed by other guests, front desk staff and restaurant employees. It's 2013...hooking up laptops to the LAN cable are just about over. If your going to renovate the entire hotel spend a liitle extra money to fix this as it can't take that much effort. Sometimes you need to roam the hotel corridors to find consistent signal.....very very very annoying.
Second the fitness centre at this property looks like a holdover from when the hotel was first built. In a claustrauphobic little room with a worn out universal gym and a couple exercise bikes. Many people business or other rely on some decent well lit fitness facilities while travelling...I hope this is on the list of renovations because it is in BAD need of one.
