Sign posted near smelly, service elevator entrance "Alternative to lobby elevator." After nearly 20 minutes wait for public elevator, got a quick (if jerky and scary) ride to the lobby via the 'alternative.' emerged into a back warren, facing a wall painted with a wall painted with a sign pointing the way to the lobby. Through the luggage storage area, past the employees-only sign. I realized I needed something from my room, tried to reverse my path, only to be accosted by a burly security guard. He spoke my least-favorite, passive aggressive euphimism for "what-the-heck-are-you-doing," that is, "May I HELP you?" When I explained my intent to use the alternative elevator, he shook his head, hustled me to main, public elevator bank, and gruffly conceded that there was a broken elevator slowing things down. The carpets and furnishing need updates. Not what I expect for $350 per night. I stay in hotels every week, am a Hilton Diamond member, and this was my first stay in an effort to gain status with another chain. Never mind.
