Stayed here for a little over a week for business. I later found out that the hotel provides shelter for displaced families. This caused an issue with the use of hotel computers (often used by the children of long-term guests or the parents looking for employment) and the noise level, in the evenings.
On my floor, there were members of the same family in different rooms and the adults and kids went back and forth between the rooms, every evening. When doing so, they'd use the security latch as a brace for the door to not lock. Every time they'd go in or out of the door, the door would bang against the latch. This would sometimes go on until late into the evening. I complained to the front desk and they would come up and ask them to keep down the travel and the noise, but the quite didn't usually last for long. The next night, the door banging and rise in noise level would start again. I considered changing my room, but I didn't want to deal with the hassle of packing up all of my stuff and unpacking it again.
Also, during my stay, one of the kids thought it was a good idea to pull the fire alarm. All guests were awakened by the fire alarm and had to evacuate the hotel. We stood outside in the cold and waited for an "all clear" from the fire department.
The staff was very cordial and the restaurants were also good. During events at the hotel, parking could be an issue. Sometimes, it was necessary to park a distance from the front of the hotel. Parking so far away may not feel like the safest thing for a woman who would need to walk the distance across the sparsely lit parking lot.
