What's the best alternative to Gatehub?

I've been patient for four freaking days, received nothing but  vague reassurances and geek-speak from Gatehub and I'm done. Out the door. Can someone tell me what's the best alternative to Gatehub? (I'm based in the US, if that's relevant.) I've heard horrible things about Poloniex, so I want to make sure I leave for something that's actually better, not worse. Thanks in advance for the recommendations.

What qualities are you looking for in an exchange/gateway?

At this point, something that works would be nice.

Also, reasonable volume, safety (of course) and the ability to trade in several cryptocoins.

lol you guys behaving like kids. you dont even know how difficult this is

No, actually, I behave like a professional and expect the same from the people I do business with. If providing a decent service is too difficult for a company, then they shouldn't be in business in the first place. And they definitely will lose my business.

My workflow currently is trading on RCL directly using a cold/hosted wallet and then redeeming the IOUs in Bitstamp, sending to Kraken for other coins.  The reason for Bitstamp being that the IOUs can be redeemed almost instantly (and then converted back to IOUS) from Bitstamp.  And then between Kraken and Bitstamp, XRP sends are also near instant while BitGo can be used to send Bitcoins instantly as well.  From Kraken, I can send to Polo or other exchanges but only with Ethereum because Bitcoin otherwise takes an hour or longer. Even XRP for some reason takes hours for Poloniex to send/receive, but ETH is instant.

There's a ton of arbitrage opportunity (even between Bitstamp and its own IOUs, don't ask why), so for me, instant withdrawals and high liquidity has been very important.  Kraken tends to have the same spot price as Poloniex (which for some reason is higher than most markets), so it's a way to capture the price of Poloniex, send it back to RCL (through Bitstamp) and buy back cheaper.  Much of the time, I don't need to even go that far as for some reason, Bitstamp's own Gateway IOUs are usually mispriced compared to its own exchange.
