I'm incredibly disappointed by this hotel and its services. I checked in last night and was given a room at the club level only to find that, upon arrival, my bed was broken and laying left-to-right at a 20 degree angle. With one leg of the bed broken and laying under it. After calling and asking for a different room, I was told that there were not enough staff members to bring me a key and I would need to pack my things, come to the main lobby, and return to the club level floor for my second room. As I was walking to the hallway of the second room, I heard a high noise level with noticeable drunken partying, not muted by the thickness of these hotel walls. As it turned out, this room not only neighbored mine but was, in fact, a suite with the door between the two shut and locked. I listened to loud profanity and shouting mixed with the sound of hitting, screaming, and drunken murmurs until I called security at 3 AM. They arrived within minutes (kudos) but then left before the loud, drunken profanity aimed at "whoever called security" began...which was immediately. Things finally calmed down at 4 AM and resumed at 6 AM. For my trouble, I was given a free full breakfast - not a continental breakfast, as this already comes free with a 10th floor stay. When I arrived for my full breakfast, I asked my waiter about his favorite menu item. He recommended the buffet, which looks EXACTLY like a continental breakfast, mini cereal boxes included. My breakfast of Yoplait and granola didn't quite fill me up so at 1:19 PM I called room service. The phone rang for FIVE MINUTES. I then hung up and dialed the front desk (1:24), asking if there was a better way to contact room service. The front desk attendant transferred me to room service, where the phone rang until 1:27 and then dropped. Absolutely unacceptable. I hope the hotel management has the decency to read this and respond appropriately.
