Good choice for business travelers. The room has a nice desk with conveniently placed outlets. The free WiFi is excellent, with zero sign-on so you can very easily connect all your laptops/tablets/smartphones without navigating sign-on pages and entering codes. Mid-day I was able to get ~12 Mbps (up & down) from the room on speedtest.net, plenty fast for calling home on FaceTime, etc. I led a conference call using GoToMeeting (VoIP/screensharing) with an excellent connection the whole time. The in-room safe is big enough to fit a 15" MacBook Pro. Something a little bit larger might fit, but I wouldn't count on it. The iMac is a nice touch, and handy if you want to check something quick and don't want to drag out the laptop. Also appreciated is the JBL speaker system connected to the iMac, very easy to pop the plug into your iPod to listen to some music. Check-in time is officially 3pm, but I checked in at 1pm with no issues. Service was prompt. Shortly after check-in, I called down and asked for some extra towels. They arrived in less than 5 minutes. The second day, I noticed that the mini-fridge wasn't working, so I called and a replacement fridge arrived in 15-20 minutes and was swapped in less than 2 minutes. The bathroom in this room is a bit cramped, with no tub, only a shower, but is clean and modern and serviceable. The gym is decent sized with a good selection of newer equipment.
