Need a room key to gain access to floor in elevator.
Yes you need a key card to operate the lift up to your floor. Not required to going down.
yes you do to any of the floors with rooms going up or down
The elevator needs key access above the 2nd floor. If you are taking a tour of the Custom House the staff will take you up to the observation tower and clockworks with their key. It is a fabulous landmark!
However, there is a tour every day - Splendid!
Yes, room key is required for elevators.
Yes, you need a key card to use the elevator to access any floors with guest rooms, and to access the public areas on the top floors
If I recall correctly- you do need a room key to access above a certain floor. The first couple of floors (lobby- lounge-bar )were not key controlled but most guest rooms were. I would double check with front desk as to which floor begins key access.
