Thank you for the great review and the compliments about our team and our hotel! We really appreciate you taking the time to post a positive review online! I will definitely have our maintenance technician take a look at the shower head in your room, maybe it's the low-flow conservation efforts we are required to follow or maybe we just need a new one. Either way, we will address it and remedy it right away! Thanks for letting us know.
