One of the local gyms has autobelays.
I noticed that carabiners used for clipping in are on the small size - this makes clipping in through both loops not that easy, extra attention is needed to make sure that the gate is closed and there is no material in between the gate and metal. Having material between the gate and carabiner might lead to failure.
the reason we don't tie in to the belay loop is because excess wear and tear from rope on loop friction. This is solved by reinforcing the harness tie in points. If you are clipping a carabiner into your harness that is attached to a belay device the belay loop is the perfect location to clip to.
