Who would have thought that a fairly decent hotel would allow their property to be used for a prostitution sting operation by the police department??!
I was in Columbus on a business trip. When I pulled into the parking lot, I noticed a sheriff paddy wagon in front of the entrance. There was plenty of commotion. When I was checking in, I asked the front desk clerk what was going on. I was told that the hotel gave PERMISSION to conduct a police sting operation to catch prostitutes at work and conduct arrests. The clerk stated it as a matter of factly like it's an everyday thing. I was shocked and felt very uncomfortable. How can a hotel attract this kind of negative attention with pleasure? I wanted to leave and go somewhere else but the hotel was booked through a third party.
The lobby was clean, modern and well lit. But the room was very outdated with ugly furniture and an old type of a bulky TV. The bathroom had mildew in the tub and around the sink area. I will never stay here again and wouldn't suggest that you do.
I couldn't stop thinking: what would possess anybody who owns a successful business to partake in something like this? It's truly beyond me.
