Knife Fight in the Parking Lot
Posted Jun 6, 2016 on Hotels
I woke up at 4AM on the second morning of my stay to a brawl in the parking lot. While I understand that the hotel staff did not cause the fight, it was the reaction to the incident that so outraged me. I tried to call the front desk many times to report the incident, but they would not answer the phone. In the morning, the daytime staff had not been made aware of the severity of the event before, simply saying the night staff had noted an "incident" that was not noteworthy enough to pass down. If a knife fight, stone throwing, cursing, and finally police action are not noteworthy, then I would say this hotel is doing something wrong and all guests and visitors should be aware that they consider it "no big deal." As it stood for me, I had to get up the next morning with little sleep and felt exhausted and upset about the incident. Again, if just one person had addressed the situation with me and offered a decent apology or to help make amends for the trouble, I would have been assuaged.
