Checked into hotel for 2 nights for a fun two days with my teenage daughter while house hunting in the area. Front desk was exceptionally kind to upgrade our room. We paid for Concierge level (flr 24) and our upgraded room was on floor 22. Have seen better concierge level amenities, but nice enough. Our biggest complaint was on our last night there, at 1:00 am we were evacuated via an emergency fire alarm. Despite being horrified, we had to run down 22+ flights of stairs in middle of the night. Exiting the hotel, there were NO hotel employees in sight to tell us anything. After standing outside for 30 minutes, we walked around the building to the front door, where everything appeared "normal". Again, after sitting in the lobby 20 minutes, NO ONE came up to us to explain anything. We finally tracked down what appeared to be a manager, and he shrugged his shoulders and told us to return to our room - false alarm. Wow, thanks a lot. No apology, no note under door (got bill though), no acknowledgement from front desk in morning. NOTHING. Will not stay again
