On behalf of our entire team, I would like to apologize for not exceeding your expectations. At the Best Western Governors Inn & Suites we strive every day to provide a superior product along with excellent customer service. I was surprised to hear that you feel we are not up to standards considering we recently completed a renovation of the entire hotel, inside and outside and we are very proud of it. So I am not sure exactly what you are referring to but would your suggestions so we know what we need to be doing in order to satisfy your expectations. In regards to our rates we feel we are very competitive for the Wichita area especially since our renovation. Because we value your business, we would like for you to consider staying with us in the future and I personally will make it right with you. I would like to offer you a corporate rate if you travel to Wichita on a regular basis.

I am so sorry we did not meet up to your expectations while staying at our hotel. In regards to the WiFi we have gone over the procedure with the Front Desk for when it happens in the future. We have also met with our front desk staff and reviewed procedures on distributing blankets, etc. We have since checked the room you stayed in and made sure we reviewed with the housekeeping staff the procedure for correctly making the beds. We do have a few new housekeepers and we will be inspecting their work and continue to train them. We appreciate your input and we are glad to hear you will stay with us in the future. Thank you for your comments and for your patronage with our brand. Sincerely,

Very Bad Experience!

As I said in the email that I sent you on August 23 and that I also in the email that I sent our BW Corporate office, my staff and I extend our sincere apologies for what you had encountered while staying at our hotel. This is absolutely not the type of hotel that allows such behavior and the police should have been called immediately. As I also mentioned, we did find out this man lives in the Wichita area and we have since put him on our "Do Not Rent" list. I have also met with our front desk staff and reviewed the procedures on how to handle such a unique situation like this. I would really like to make this right with you and I am hoping you will give us another try in the future. Please call me direct at 1-316-522-0775 and I will take care of your reservation. I promise we will do our best to make sure you have a wonderful stay. Sincerely,

An Great Establishment with Great People
