Rooms can be on the small side.

Wi-Fi connection can be unreliable.

Some guests find the hotel's complimentary internet service to be undependable. Reports suggest that the Wi-Fi signal can prove intermittent, making it difficult to access the internet at times.

Valet parking too expensive for some.
