At 2 am?? Faulty smoke alarm or paranormal?
At 2 am the smoke detector in 153 kept going off, not just the beeping from a dead battery but full on alerts as if there was smoke or fire in the room but I was sleeping like a baby. Paranormal? Or just a faulty smoke detector? Idk, but when I called the front desk guy, he said there was nothing he could do, he couldn't come and he couldn't send anybody to take it down and couldn't switch my room!! He said he was sold out but the girl in the morning said he wasn't sold out and could've switched my room but just didn't. I had to put the chair on the bed just to reach it to take it down myself, only thing he told me was if I break it, I buy it. What a help he was, NOT ( I'm only 5ft tall) this was dangerous and I didn't sleep much at all after that. So pissed off!! THIS WAS MY REWARD NIGHT AND WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A GOOD ONE, THEN THEY REFUSED TO HONOR A REPLACEMENT NIGHT!!
