More amenities available than I had time to use. They will hold your luggage for you.
Cons: Showerhead and sink faucet - stylish, but not as efficient as desired. Could hear hallway noise and other guests from room. There are some uneven areas in the hallway's floor on upper levels, which can present a hazard for those with mobility issues or previous leg/hip injuries.
