We found this hotel to be generally of a good standard. The room was well appointed and the lobby was impressive.The location was excellent, all of the staff we dealt with were polite and attentive and lobby was impressive. The attached bar and restaurant looked pleasant enough although we didn't eat there. We had breakfast in our room which was decent by the standard of hotel breakfasts. It wasn't perfect though. $9.95 per 24 hours for in room Internet access is a baffling rip-off. Even more so when you consider that means $9.95 per device. At this price you'd expect super fast, reliable access, but it simply didn't work and we ended up having to traipse down to the lobby to connect there. The charge itself is unacceptable, especially when other hotels we stayed in on our trip, both large and small, provided complimentary Internet access. And at the rate the Astor charges it would seem petty of them to demand a fee for what has become a standard feature of modern hotels. If you're lucky, you might be able to leech off the Holiday Inn's WiFi, provided free of charge to its guests.
