I was here for a convention and didn't get the opportunity to check out all the amenities at this hotel. However, the restaurant was surprisingly good and the lobby bar rocks until the wee hours. Friendly staff too!

My husband spent almost two hours trying to connect and was on the phone the whole time with their IT Dept. it never worked for him. I was able to connect no problem. Bottom line, you may want to consider elsewhere.
