My stay at the hotel this weekend was horrible. My room was near the banquet rooms where they hold wedding receptions. I'm not sure how, but a severely intoxicated wedding guest (but not a hotel guest) managed to go unnoticed by staff when they closed down one of the parties. Around 2 am he proceeded to howl and holler for a good hour or more in the lobby. I called the front desk to request security and when their response was not prompt I called 911. The police arrived and subsequently the man was sent to an area hosptial. Horrible!! How are the guests supposed to feel safe and secure when any random person can wander into the buidlings? (the building doors are not locked as they are at other hotels). When I asked this question of the young man at the front desk the following day, his reply was that there is no way a person could break into your room. nice... This was my first stay at this hotel and will also be my last (the only reason I stayed here was because my "go to" hotel for CT (the Marriott Residence Inn) was booked.
