Our room was broken into either from an unlocked balcony door or a duplicate key. Thousands of dollars of items stolen. Hotel management was good about being apologetic about the situation but no discounts or comps were offered for the loss.

Very close. Under a 1/2 mile to where I am suspecting you will be leaving out from. I would not suggest walking as there aren’t construction free sidewalks and traffic can get a bit congested.
