I'm so glad the SFBall is moving to another hotel. At least three times per day during my stay my room key stopped working and I had to to go the front desk to get it recharged.
The internet was a joke, hardly worked all weekend, I know it was free internet but I've stayed in £10/night hostels which had better internet (not that the internet was decent when you had to pay for it in the Carrington though)
The service during the Ball's meal in the main hall was terrible, my chicken chasseur was cold and someone who had ordered raw vegetables for dietary reasons received chicken chasseur with cooked veg. Some people were only getting their main course when we had finished ours.
Also there was no bell on the desk to alert staff that there was someone waiting at reception during the night
