I was visiting NH Villanova for the first time since I had a business meeting nearby. The hotel was described as having free Internet, pool, and fitness center. While all of these facts are true, the delivery is far from what a business traveler needs. The fitness center was three pieces of equipment; an old noisy treadmill, a bike, and a universal gym set. Nothing else. The pool is nice, but small. The free wifi is too slow for business use; you cannot load and watch a YouTube video. The hotel requires a 9 Euro purchase for faster Internet. When I woke up to iron by shirt and suit, there was no iron in the room. The hotel does not provide an iron or ironing board; I was told this when I called the front desk. Since fitness is important to me as well as good WiFi, business travelers should know what you are getting into. The room that I had, number 701, was spacious, comfortable, and the accommodations were larger than normal in Europe. I paid 10 Euro to upgrade to the larger room. The bed was comfortable for European standards; a little thin for US standards. Overall, I will not come back because for business there are too many choices that offer a better gym, WiFi, and have rooms with irons.
