Wireless Connectivity - Hot Spot vs Corp




I have not been able to get my Debian stretch 9.3 to connect to corporate APs.  

I am using wpa_supplicant for networking.  The laptop can connect by tethering to my cell phone.  I have tried connecting to secured networks using a passphrase and to open networks.  

Below are two examples, the first being an unsuccessful attempt to an open network (Holiday Inn).  I tried both the SSIDs on different runs with no success.  The second example is the successful connection to a cell phone.

The results are 'significantly' different, and I cannot figure out why.

I would appreciate any suggestions to help move past this.
