On arrival the pull up area in front of the hotel was blocked by 3 limos so to get off the road we went into the parking garage where we had such a long wait for a bellman that I went in search of a trolley to move our luggage myself only to end up in a battle with the manager as they would not let me use a trolley myself as it was against hotel policy? But not against their policy to keep clients waiting!
After getting a reasonable rate from hotwire we were disappointed to be overlooking a construction site which on the first day was ok as it was a Sunday but Monday the crew started arriving at 0700 and were in full swing boring holes by 0730 and worked until 1900.
Also on a minus note was the doorman who when asked how long it would take to walk to a landmark replied "Depends how fast you walk", really useful!!
On a positive note the concierge were very helpful with our enquiry about whale watching trips, which I strongly recommend going on.
