I'm not writing about the actual hotel stay. I am writing to warn others of the unsafety of their parking lot.
The night of January 23, 2012 not only our but 3 cars with New York plates had their windows shattererd and items stolen from their cars. GPS was taken.
Hotels need to take extra safety measures when they knows cars are being broken into to steal GPS units.
Take EVERYTHING out of your cars here. Do not leave GPS under your seat..the crooks know this.
Hotel room itself- fine. But paying $135 per night when you wake up to shattered glass, items stolen and $600 repair bills..Not worth it.
Clearly the hotel has known about these break-ins for quite some time. But where is the security????
