The upside: nice hotel in perfect location, very clean, spacious well designed rooms, nice downstairs lounge area, good breakfast. Staff were very friendly.
Downside: their internet was very unreliable. Worked OK sometimes -- other times was so slow as to be nonfunctional. My husband and I both had work to get done during our stay, and the poor connectivity made it *extremely* frustrating.
At one point husband had a work crisis, and had to sit on the phone with his boss fuming while he waited 30+ minutes for his email to download. Yeah, that's fun.
Sorry, but when I pay almost $300/night for a hotel (we stayed almost a week), I expect *all* the utilities (hot water, electricity, and internet) to be adequate.
I loved this hotel but I can't risk staying someplace where I'm unable to get work done. So I may or may not stay here again.
