The Atlantica was very suitable for our trip. They have a full business centre in the lobby with two computers, internet and printers. The only thing I could have used and missed was a scanner.
My room was on the tenth floor and had partial views of the park and office buildings across the street. I had excellent internet, but a colleague staying a few doors down said his internet was intermittent.
The continental breakfast ($11 - included with our rooms) was a good spread: toast, bagels, oatmeal, cold cereals, fruit, yogurt & granola, pastries, cheese, tea/coffee. On the last day I upgraded to the hot breakfast, which was only an extra $4, for eggs, bacon/sausage, and hashbrowns.
The pool was nice - long enough to do some laps - and had an excellent hot tub. The fitness centre is small but adequate - 2 treadmills, an elliptical, a stationary bike, free weights, and a fitness unit. The only downside to the fitness room is that it is down a long hallway from the elevators, past guest rooms on one side and board rooms on the other. There are change rooms in the fitness centre, so I'd suggest bringing a small gym bag to avoid walking past corporate meetings in your gym clothes.
It was an easy 15 min walk to downtown pubs and shops, and there are drugstores, restaurants, and coffee shops just behind the hotel on Quinpool Rd.
There is underground parking at $17 a day. The parking lot is very narrow and hard to manoeuvre with a larger vehicle like a minivan. It was usually very full, but there were often spaces on the lowest level.
Generally very good service and hospitality from the staff. A nice clean, bright, well kept-up hotel.
