Stayed at this hotel on July 29, 2011. We awoke at 1:30AM to the smell of smoke and the noise of the fire truck and firemen. There was a fire in the storage area close to our room. After two hours of noise and smoke we finally went back to a nervous sleep. GET THIS, at no time did anyone in the hotel alert any of the guests about the fire!!!! You would think from a safety aspect, the guests would have been notified. This is a old building and fire can spread very quickly. The next morning I overheard the front desk lady talking to a guest and she said "three minutes later and the whole place would have been on fire" so, what to you get from that comment?
