The neighborhood is very safe, with a 24-hour university city district security staff that patrol the neighborhood, but guest who are not used to an urban aesthetic should judge their own comfort levels.

Other Things to Note
The room is quite small, and does not have a closet. I leave a space in the hallway closest for extra storage.
