1. The only dowside I would say is there is no free wifi in your room, so to use the wifi you have to go to the public areas of the hotel, which at times is very crowded.

3. The lobby area (which really covers multiple floors, especially the first and second, with open areas on the third and fourth related to the conference facilities, all connected by open escalators) was nice enough, although there weren't always enough seats if you wanted a place to hang out for a while and use the free wireless (it's a pricey $12.95/day to access the Internet in the room, but wireless in the lobby is free).
