First, I emailed the hotel about reservations and promptly received a return call from Miguel. He was very helpful as we requested a lower level floor. He explained the hotels general policy of availability of lower level. No, there is no elevator, but I climbed to the rooftop with any problems.
They stairs aren't all the bad.
Anywho, as per our request, we ended up on the 2nd floor. Room 2E.
If was a small interior room, which is great because in was dark and quiet.
Pictures do not do justice to the rooftop area. It was extremely clean and well appointed. Check out the giant concrete soaking tubs on the roof at sunset!
