Elevators were under repair and required long waits for operating elevators. Also the room was noisy from both air traffic and neighboring rooms.

The aAir conditioner was loud and clunking in riom. Looks like they had been working on it before. Loud party until late a night inside area by pool, made hard to sleep until late. No refrigerator, surprised us as this is first Doubletree or Hilton we have stayed that did not have one. Parking was $30 a night, really?
