Security Problems A review of Wingate by Wyndham Atlanta/Buckhead
We just got home from a one night stay. Nice hotel, convenient to everything in the Buckhead area. However, ominous signs in parking lot and waiver of liability at check-in should have given me an idea that something was up. Sure enough, our Tahoe was broken into with a tool that goes in behind the lock and disables the alarm. We lost a lot of HIDDEN items, digital cameras, etc. Three cars were hit last night (09/05/05), and the police officer responding said that this hotel was BAD for this, and that they did not respond to the suggestion to put up a security camera or post a guard. He had been there even the day before working other car break-ins! They just get their waiver of responsibility and then turn a blind eye. I am on a campaign to make them offer better security in their parking lot.
How much would it cost to place even DUMMY cameras in the parking lot with signs warning the thieves? Instead, they simply get their liability waivers and the rampant problem continues. The police officer told us that the authorities suspect that someone in the hotel might be even tipping off or aiding the thieves! This experience turned what would have been an excellent review into what I hope is a terrible one, warning all. Nobody could have seen into our car (tinted windows, etc.), so no car is safe in the parking lot of the Wingate Inn Atlanta Buckhead at 3600 Piedmont Road.
