The jacket looks better zipped. I got it too and it looks pretty big worn open.
Thats crazy sending it to your hotel. Did they just deliver it to the front desk and have the concierge hold it for you? I'd be worried the shipping would be delayed and I wouldn't get it in time unless I was staying for more than just the weekend.
@wurlwyde meyvn and ssense were the only stores I saw get it in brown. There's a couple places that have it in charcoal in a 48 if youre interested.
