          I honestly don't recall because we didn't look for a safe. However, you can call the hotel and ask - their customer service is absolutely amazing and I'm sure they'll have a solution for you!

          We only used the stairs that are visible from the lobby. We only went up one flight. I am not sure about upper floors.
