It's unclear how many guests have been booking rooms at the 455-room hotel, part of the controversy-ridden $192 million Protogroup twin-tower hotel-condominium project. The six-story parking garage used by the hotel across Atlantic Avenue often is nearly empty, with only a little over 50 of its 517 spaces in use.
