When on a business trip you tend to pick hotels that will make it easy to continue doing business as if you are at home or the office. The internet access in the rooms of this hotel is a joke! It was impossible to do email from the rooms. We had to go work in the lobby where the access was ok.
Besides the above this hotel has a policy to charge you the full amount for your stay up-front, not reserve an amount, charge it!
For a 5 star hotel the staff are remarkably unprofessional. I had to ask the cleaning staff to tone it down at night and concierge could not understand basic English.
We will not be using the Sea Cliff hotel again for business trips
