Grand Imperial, Silverton CO WiFi speeds

Grand Imperial King bed

The Grand Imperial has traditionally¬†been¬†a lovely hotel in Silverton CO. The hotel’s antique charm and vintage rooms¬†were the main draws: Now, however, their wifi speeds¬†are also quite attractive: http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/5433605188 The connection has also been rock solid over the course of a two day stay.

It also beats AT&T 4G service in Silverton which currently maxes

Crossroads Inn and Suites, Salem MO WiFi review [EXCELLENT]

WiFi speedtest results, EXCELLENT

I regularly stay throughout Missouri for business. I normally test the speeds at every hotel I stay in. Recently I stayed at the Crossroads Inn and Suites in Salem MO.

WiFi coverage was also excellent, both in my room and

Freedom of the Seas, enable HDMI input?

We recently cruised on the Freedom of the Seas ship, and all the TVs in the state rooms were Samsung TVs with the inputs disabled.

speedtest-joplinmo

I am on a business trip to upgrade servers at Weblogs.us. The servers are located in Tulsa OK, but for tonight I stopped in Joplin MO along the way. Priceline negotiator got me a room for $42 plus tax at the Best Western Oasis. That price is nice but internet is a big part of my work so I always try to evaluate the network speeds where I stay. So far I’d give them a C+ but speedtest.net rates it
