We had stayed at the hotel before and had a great experience so we decided to stay here again, wish I could say the same about this go around but was disappointed. The valet and clerks at front desk were super nice but as soon as we stood at the elevator to head up to our room, we seriously waited for what seemed like 10minutes till one of the three elevators came down. On our way up we quickly realized why, there must have been some sort of event happening because there was a huge number of teenagers (none looked over 12yrs) staying at the hotel, none looked supervised, and we stopped at practically ever floor on the way up to our 14th floor!!! Because at every one we stopped at there was a group of teens pushing the elevator button, none would get in, keep saying they would catch the next one, as if it was a game. People on the elevator with us at the time must have had been experiencing the same encounters because they had the same comments to make. When we finally got to our room, the one next to us was open showing a large group of boys and girls with the music turned up. All in all the actual hotel and staff are great, just make sure you check if there is any kind of events happening when you stay.
