The staff were wonderful, but it was too busy to get a reservation on the terrace or anywhere else close by for that matter. We had to order food from door dash and the staff wouldn’t even allow them to deliver to our room. It was very inconvenient

The history of the hotel. For someone who has difficulty walking and doing stairs the inconvenience of no escalators or elevators or ramps on the outside of the hotel made it very diffiicult to access outviewing spots.
