The escalators were not working. You either had to walk outside from the Hyatt or take a 6 person elevator to get to the meeting rooms on a lower level. Luckily it wasn't raining.

Only go there a few times a year for Boat and Car shows but its always a pleasure. Parking in neighboring garage is a breeze and reasonably priced. The sky bridge connection is a welcome bonus.
