a friend and i stayed at the sandman for a business trip. it was right in a part of town that everything was nearby, which was good. the hotel room was clean, there was a dennys right at the hotel which was pretty good. we didn't use the amenities like the pool or steam room but it was available for use. however the only amenity that failed miserably was the internet. i could not get on the internet at all unless i went into the common area when you come into the hotel, which at that didn't even work (wireless). they had a business centre in which i can use but I wanted to do my work in the privacy of my own room, which i was unable to do. i called the front desk to ask why it wasn't working and the explanation i got was "there are possibly children in the hotel, that can be streaming things onto their devices and that is what could be the problem. I really can't find out in each room who is streaming." first i didn't ask her to do that and i just said fine and hung up. however at 4am that morning i attempted to log on to my device to do some work and still, nothing.
so, it boils down to this. either the hotel needs to get a stronger router or not advertise they have wifi available in the rooms because you really can't get it.
is the hotel nice and people are polite? yes of course. is it clean and worth staying at? absolutely. is it good for people who have laptops, and need to get work done? unless you want to go to the lobby or dennys and see if you can get work done, then no its not until they update their digital devices for wifi or figure out how to get a stronger signal for those who choose want to work in their pi's with out the distraction of people coming in and out or talking.
