Everything that was open was terrific. Not having breakfast (hot) at hotel little inconvenient with two family members having walking issues. The security for customers was not great when service door is continuously unlocked creating an unsafe environment especially for women traveling alone (please correct ASAP. The staff is 100 % wonderful and all open areas extremely well maintained. I will visit the sister location Georgian Hotel again in Atlanta because of your great staff everywhere!
