Sure, the Hyatt Place Arboretum has many of the basics: running water, nice big TV, fresh towels, AC + heat, peasing decor... all the stuff you'd expect from a modern hotel.
But it seriously lacks decent internet, if you can even call the dial-up speeds of the early 90's "internet". It is horribly, horribly, horribly backwards and antiquated in this respect. To me, it's like not having running water, it's that fundamental. The "Free WiFi" here is a joke, to say the least (that you even say that in this era is a sign that the owner / manager is over 50).
Fast WiFi is as basic as TV, clean bed, running water.
Seriously, all they'd have to do is spend about 5K and fix the their WiFi, but it's clear they have no idea what they are doing, and don't even care (chances are, you're stuck here anyway). Modern business travelers expect fast, free internet, and it's not expensive to provide it.
Take a cue from the way Starbuck's or McDonald's does it, tho it's a shame a major hotel chain needs to copy a fast food joint to learn something about hospitality. The owner / manager should be embarrassed.
