Good Day May I first say that I thank you for complimenting our design and restaurant offerings. I appreciate the opportunity to respond to your concerns. As you may be aware the majority of our tripadvisor comments are very very positive so your concerns are very important to me. My office is located in the front lobby and on occasion the chlorine smell from the pool is sometimes noticeable if it has been very busy in the pool and more chemicals have to be added. We have very strick testing rules from the Health Unit and our levels are taken hourly. We are not allowed to be over a certain level at any time so I am sure that the day you were here may have been very busy and we had just added chemicals. My front desk staff or myself have never experienced watery eyes or strong odors from the pool however I do appreciate that you may be sensitive to the chlorine and I apologize that it had this effect on you. The second floor has balconies and I see that you were located on the main floor. The rooms are heated with HVAC units and I apologize again if those units are within a few degrees of what they are reading. Best Western has designated the properties with their amenity choices and it is mandatory that we carry the one designated for Plus. I agree with you whole heartedly that they are not very nice or of the proper size. I used to carry one called Pure, which I sourced out after trying over 10 different ones and it was wonderful. I have complained endlessly to change this new one but with no avail. I will definitely let them know that you were not happy with this new one as are many other of my regular guests. Most importantly to me was the comment about our staff. As mentioned we excel in Superior Customer Care and I feel that we obviously failed you. I have posted your comments with the front desk, housekeeping and the restaurant so they are reminded how important it is to deliver on Superior Customer Care with every guest every time. I would ask, should you have the time, to email me directly rsawchyn@bwplusnorwester.com so I may contact you directly with resolution of your issues. Your opinion is important to our success and I appreciate your comments so as to ensure customer satisfaction. Respectfully, Roberta Sawchyn, CHA General Manager
