The staff was excellent and very friendly. They even let me do an early check in. I took a trip to LA and came back around 8pm to find that the fire exit that lead to the outside was propped open. On[More]
top of that, my room was right next door to the exit. I kicked the block out the door and went in my room.
The following morning, the door was propped open again. I did the same routine. By the time I got back that afternoon, I saw that it was propped open again, and I took the block downstairs and addressed my concerns with the front desk clerk, who was very friendly.
I am assuming that the housekeepers that work here are contracted, which is why they don't have access to the exit doors. But the doors allowed to stay propped open pose a huge security risk, especially with it leading directly to the outside. I feel that not only should be concerned about comfort, but safety should be paramount as well. This needs to seriously be addressed at a higher level and safer option needs to be found.
Although the hotel was comfortable, clean and the staff was very friendly, excellent I will NOT be recommending anyone come to this hotel to stay. I was offered a room further away from the exit, but that really does not resolve the safety concern. [Less]
