On a recent stay at this hotel, I was asked not once, but twice by homeless people hanging around this hotel for money, or "loose change". The first time was even inside the hotel near the elevators right in the lobby. The second time was in the parking lot near by car. I told the gentleman, "no" and then had to re-park my car in a location where I could see it from my room in order to make sure it did not get broke into or vandalized. Also, my AC did not work properly in my room, it only had VERY COLD setting. After bringing this to what I thought was the attention of the manager via internet twice, I have yet to hear a thing from them. I would recommend NOT staying at this hotel.
