Front desk staff was not very friendly I understand they were training a new staff member but they should have paid more attention to us at the customer and gone over additional points after we have been checked in

The only drawback was two false-alarm fire alarms during our first night. We were directed to evacuate to the lobby twice. It turned out to be a sprinkler malfunction.
