Sad face IconDisliked: Staff & service
During check-in, the staff asked me to pay $1400 deposit, I wondered why I needed to pay so much and staff repeated the same reply that I needed to pay those amount for incidentals and unpaid hotel room fees, what?! I showed her my full payment receipt on Expedia, and senior staff came and fixed the problem of incorrect fees. They kept saying that they didn’t get money from Expedia yet because I made reservations on the same day.. but I already fully paid to Expedia and that was a transferred problem between Expedia and Hotel.. shouldn’t be on my side. Well, the front desk manager texted me how my check-in experience was, so I complained to him about incorrect charge during my check-in. He texted me back to talk about it more in person. I went to the front desk during my dinner and he suggested me to give a free dessert.. well, I already ruined my first day by bad experience during check-in, and just free dessert?... so I told him “No thanks for the free dessert.” He asked me back “what do you want?” Well, I told him, in this case, at least free room upgrade since our room condition was horrible as well. The mirror on the TV stand had a lot of rust.. hotel needs some improvement of facility as well. The manager texted me our upgraded room is ready, so I went to front desk to pick up the key, but manager’s attitude and speaking gesture to tell me about this room upgrade without any charge made me feel even worse. So rude and unprofessional staffs here.
