"Social interaction is a key part of the elevator experience at the Hotel Lombardy in Washington, D.C. The Lombardy boasts the last truly manual elevator in D.C.; there is an operator on hand at any time of day to take guests to their floors./ In just a few weeks, however, the elevator is scheduled to become automatic. / Keith Marshall, who has been operating the elevator for the past 30 years, reminds passengers that it's most likely their last ride in the charming, but noisy elevator."[2]
