    There is a set of stairs a bit more than 1/2 way down the wing that can take you down to the pool. I don't recall if there are other stairs at the end or not.

    AKL is only 1 building, Giraffe Trail is a section. See this map:

    It's a small section so it can't be far from anything.

    The fitness center is on the other side of the pool from the Giraffe Trail (on part of the Zebra trail).

    Yes I seen this map before but was wanting to know where the elevators and stairs are. This only shows one elevator, surely there are more ways to get to the pool :confused3

    Are you sure I'm seeing on a map that the fitness center is in the Giraffe Trail section ?

    The Giraffe trail is very short. The distance of the whole hallway is about equal to the distance between the lobby and the elevators on the Zebra Trail.

    The stairs aren't shown on the map, but their occurrence is definitely more frequent. I'm pretty sure there is a set near each bay of elevators, then there are sets at both ends of each hallway (so each wing should have at least 3 sets of stairs)
    Since we were on the 4th floor...we favored a set between the lobby and the entrance to the Zebra trail over walking to the elevators.

    If you request Giraffe Trail, all the stairs and elevators in your wing will feed very close to the fitness center on one side and the bus stop on the other.

    Anyone know of a map that shows where the stairs are on Giraffe Trail. Every map I have seen only shows 1 elevator ?
