They didn't bother to contact us after a nearby fire closed the hotel for 90 days

21/02/2018 badger718, Seattle

Dear badger718, I believe you are referring to the 4 Alarm fire that took place only a few days ago, which destroyed a several historic buildings, displaced 60 adjacent residents, killed 17 family pets and resulted in the extensive water damage, complete computer systems destroyed and closure of the Best Western Hotel. Correct? We regret the inconvenience your family has encountered, however we are in the process of contacting all future guests and advising them of the tragedy that took place here a few days ago. Honestly, we started with those whose reservations set to arrive sooner and working our way to those who are father out. And while we respect everyone's opinion and the review they post on TripAdvisor, yours is one I would never have expected, especially after such a horrific tragedy. Nonetheless, we hope your family has a nice gathering next month! JM
