The Roehampton is one of the hotels the city has taken over to house homeless people so they can social distance because of the pandemic.
The controversial shelter — which is operating at about $220 per client each day and opened July 3 — has 174 clients.
There have been several violent incidents that prompted 24-hour security.
Residents around the shelter weren’t notified by the city that the hotel was being turned into a shelter.
Residents have also complained about a spike in criminal activity in the area since the shelter opened.
