Bellman (Former Employee) says"Backstabbers, corporate greed, and nasty guest. Just dont. The hotel itself is just a giant maze and trying to give directions to people is just stupid because they tune out after 3 seconds. Management is a joke and full of backstabbing corporate coats who just line their pockets. Again just dont."
