Great location and beautiful lobby, very nice staff..registration clerks, concierge..efficient and friendly. However go to higher floors and things change. In our room my husband went to open the closet door and the handle came off in his hand, Tried to hang up his coat and the hanger fell apart. Picked up the phone to call the front desk and the phones were dead. He said he felt like he was in a Peter Sellers movie. We found very few charging stations in the room. Didn’t see the hole in the back of the cabinet shelf to pull the Coffee maker plug thru to the outlet, so moved it into the bathroom. And our room wasn’t serviced at all during our stay. All in all it was a bit strange.
