I didnt like how i couldnt use the wifi on my ps4 due to needing to log in via a webpage. Instead i had to log into it on my phone and use my phone as a hot spot. Minor inconvenience but worth mentioning none the less. Loved the smell of the room. And liked the security to get into and out of the parking garage and the elevator.
