1 vallet who is not a security guard on level 1 of a 5 level parking garage
this is non smoking facility which sounds great - until you see people using the parking garage as a smoking lounge all night.
contacted the front desk regarding some suspicious individuals in the parking garage TWICE during our 1 night stay.
Desk employee was very understanding and concerned.
allowed us to park on level 1 for the night where the vallet could watch our vehicle.
this does not change the fact that facility needs a security guard walking the parking garage at least at night - there is none.
while this is a 2 block walk to the mall , it may also be central to an urban bar scene.
not the best area.
next time i visit houston, i will more likely stay in the memorial area west of here.
manager contacted me via email following my starwood review, seemed less concerned about my issues than his staff (they were great for having only 1 desk clerk, 1 vallet and 1 bar tender working the entire hotel.)
