After midnight, I heard young men making loud noises in the park in front of the hotel. I was on the second floor and could clearly see the men and one particularly stood out who was apparently the ringleader. I turned away from the window and was trying to go online (which I was not able to do, incidentally), when the noise outside increased. I went back to the window and believe it or not, the ringleader managed to get on my balcony outside of my room (#2066). I was so flabergasted, I could do nothing. I moved away from the window, making sure it was locked. I regret that I did not call the police. I didn't believe that the hotel would respond. I had already been receiving a lukewarm response from the staff, and prayed that I would be delivered from this experience unharmed. I shall never stay at the Menger again!
The Menger Bar: after the staff began to warm up to me (I was the only black men in the bar) they showed that they could tolerate me.
