      There was construction right outside our room. We were 8 floors up, I look over and a man is on a scaffold. They drilled for 6 hours straight on a Sunday. All restaurants and bars are currently closed. You can order room service. The positives - rooms are spacious and the shower is awesome. People working there were friendly.
