Overall the hotel is pleasant, however there were 2 glaring issues.
1. Lack of work space in the guest room
2. Lack of convenient electrical outlet access in the room
3. Alarm clock was across the room, no where near the bed in room# 136
2. Lack of WIFI access in the guest rooms.
I checked into to room# 500 and had no WIFI signal. I called the front desk to complain and they said that the higher floors have very poor WIFI signals. I was moved to room# 136 and there was no improvement. When I took my Ipad to the main lobby, the WIFI worked fine. It seems the hotel is aware of the WIFI issue but really does a poor job in communicating this upon check in. Needless to say, having WIFI access in one's hotel room in today's business environment is vital.
The gym is terrific and the restaurant next door, Aquariva is top notch.
