Pros: Love the hotel staff - very courteous and helpful. Service was exemplary! The rooftop bar was a pleasant surprise - what a view! Being on my own, I felt secure with the hotel's security (you can only access the floor of your room), and they announce visitors and callers beforehand. This should be done by all hotels.
Cons: The spotty Wi-Fi in my hotel room. I had to sit by the window to find that "sweet spot." The individual userid and passwords to access Wi-Fi from different equipment could be improved.
