This area apparently has a park concert, at least on Wednesday, August 23rd, that is located near the hotel - near enough that you can hear the concert, very clearly, through the windows. The music was good so that's a plus. The problem is, Doubletree allows anyone to park in their parking lot so guess, what, there was no parking available for me or any one else trying to check in after being on the road and working all day. When I went to the front desk they directed me to a parking garage slightly around the corner. The hotel's parking garage was nearly full but I managed a spot. I confronted the desk again and asked why they didn't station a security guard at the hotel's parking lot entrance. I didn't get a good response, only an excuse when they stated that the hotel was also hosting a 200-person dinner and that "probably" was the reason why the lot was full. I said, "probably," so that means you're not sure. I told them that I witnessed concert-goers carrying lawn chairs from their vehicles in the hotel's lot and told them again that they should be putting their customers first and ensuring that we have parking available. I then asked about security in the parking garage and was told that there is security but they only patrol the parking garage every few hours. This is totally unacceptable. I hope you learn from this Doubletree. I guarantee you that I was not the only person who complained about this, on this very night, and from the small attitude I received from the front desk, I bet it has happened before.
