Parc 55 Hotel anyway to accesst Free internet?

I am considering the Parc 55. I have been getting conflicting information. I do not need internet access in my room at $14.95/day. I would be happy with a free business center and/ or wireless in public areas.

Their website says free wireless internet access in public areas. It mentions a lounge. The person at reservations says no this is not the case. Who do i believe?

Does anyone know which is true? What is in the business center and is access free? Answers to these questions will help me decide if i need to bring a laptop for emails and airport checkin. If there is not a long line up at the business center i am happy to use their computers if free.

No first hand experience, but it does say:

"Parc Connections"- Free internet access in the 4th floor business center and on several work stations on the 2nd floor. Limited Time Usage.

It doesn't say anything about wireless access in public areas such as the lobby that I could see. If it helps, there are several Starbucks within a few blocks, so if you really need access, there are options around.

I just spoke with an information person at the Parc 55 who said......

They have WiFi in the rooms for a charge of $12.95 for 24 hours.

There is complimentary Wifi on the 2nd floor...evidently long tables, or something in a room where you can work.

The Business Center is on the 4th floor. Use is complimentary.

Welcome.

If it were I, I would bring my laptop. Not sure, but it "sounds" as if the only place you can use a desktop is in the business center, which might be busy.
