Authorities responded around 2 a.m. to the hotel at 2779 Fairfield Commons Blvd., after a man wearing a ski mask displayed a silver handgun to the front desk clerk.

Officials say the robber put the gun to the clerk’s head before making her clear out the hotel’s cash drawer.

The clerk told authorities she was then shoved into a back room before the suspect took her cellphone and fled out the hotel’s back door in an unknown direction.

The suspect is described as a man wearing black pants, a black winter jacket and ski mask.

The front desk clerk was not injured, police said.
