Thank you for sharing your insight regarding your recent stay, and more importantly, thank you for your business. We appreciate knowing what you liked and how we can improve for our future guests. Please accept my apologies about the error in your rate. I assume it is taken care of, but if not, please contact me at MLamphere@RamkotaRC.com and I would be happy to assist you. I will follow up with our lounge team regarding your experience, as that type of behavior isn't the norm and isn't acceptable. Wishing you safe and happy travels ahead.
