My daughter & I stayed at The Marker, which had recently opened. We parked our car in the "set down" area in front of the hotel & she went in to register. The Concierge walked past her to where I was sitting & told me I had to move the car - I don't know how he didn't see that we were checking in. We could not find the car park after driving around the block & decided to use valet parking. We walked across the street to Ely's restaurant for drinks & a half hour later the car was still sitting there; it eventually was parked. When we returned at 11:10 pm, we wanted to go up to the rooftop area but were told it had just closed. We made a point of getting back to the hotel early enough the next day so we could go to the rooftop lounge area. The Concierge at the elevator to the roof at first told us that there already were 120 people there & that we would have to wait. Once we showed him our room key, we were immediately able to go up. The view from the roof was amazing, service was good & it was a nice evening to look out over the city. During that night, our room became extremely hot & it seemed like the air conditioning was not working. Staff brought us a fan, which helped cool the room down. When we were checking out, we were not charged for the valet parking because of the AC malfunction. Our big room had a view of the playground below us & some of the city, and the dark curtains kept the early sunlight out. Overall, the hotel is quite nice & in a good area, staff were very helpful, the beds were comfy.
