Tried to check in around 2 pm told no rooms available yet, they would call when ready. An hour later after watching numerous people being assigned rooms mI decided to check on my room. Shift change must have happened and when I asked if my room was ready clerk said"someone didn't pick up key cards?", When I told her that previous clerk said I would be called wehn room was ready she acted surprised.
