The hotel is in a good location on campus and is clean and comfortable. BUT there is no wireless internet access in the hotel, which considering it is supposed to be a conference hotel, is quite inconvenient. You can get a cable internet connection but that's no good for modern laptops which don't have a hole for an ethernet cable. There is one public computer down in the lobby for guest use, and they confiscate your room key to give you the password to access it and don't give you your room key back until you've handed back the piece of paper with the password on it. Craziness in 2011... Apart from that the hotel is nice and the staff are friendly.
