Hotel is still under construction and we got here at 1:00 am and of their 2 elevators one is under construction and the other was broken. We had to drag our luggage up 14 flisght of stairs. The guy could have offered to have someone bring it. At 6:30 am someone was outside making a terrible noise in the alley below woke up out of a dead sleep. Beds were amazing the smell of new construction nauseating.
