Dear Mark, You business is very important to us and we value your feedback. We were so sorry to learn after check-out in your hotel survey that you discovered "dust behind the make-up mirror in the bathroom" and a coffee stain and mildew from humid conditions on the exterior lakefront balcony railing, which lessened your otherwise positive experience. Immediately upon receipt of your comments, the dust on the back splash ledge behind the mirror was wiped away and the balcony is now spotless. Our housekeeping team prides itself in consistently delivering exceptionally clean rooms, so we apologize if checking the balcony area accidentally got missed, and for any inconvenience this may have caused you. By telling us what you liked about your stay, and how we can improve, you are helping us deliver a Premier experience for you and other guests in the future. We hope you will come back again soon, so that you can enjoy a typical five star experience, and confidently recommend The Lodge on Lake Detroit to others.

Awesome getaway.
