Need better signage for hotel check in/valet parking, when you pull in there is no clear communication of where to park or pull up.

I wish there was better parking. Clearer signs or someone to tell you where to park. Other than that it’s a great hotel.

On the 12th floor, the view of downtown was minimal. The building is open and does not feel safe. I went to go outside to smoke and there were homeless people sleeping in one of the hallway/walkways. Checkout was not until 12:00, and someone tried to come in our room at 9:30am; when we said "occupied", they slammed our door. We were trying to relax and watch TV and they continuously did fire alarm checking; so relaxing before our drive back was an aggravation. We were unaware that after paying so much for this room, we would have to pay another $25 to park our vehicle and walk very far to get to/from it. I was disappointed because from the photos, I thought I had booked a very special room, but it turned out to be comparable to a cheap room.

Small rooms and lots of constructing which wasn't mentioned until check in and you have to go all over to get to the to floors and elevators went down 4 times in the 2 days we were there. So we had to do the status for 5 floors then all the way to the elevator on the other side of the building. Probably won't go again honestly.
