Lisa, I'm sorry we weren't able to get back to you in the amount of time that you expected from us. I have looked into this, personally, and I assure you that Gabi did follow up with this Credit Card Issue and made the phone calls necessary to get you your refund. Unfortunately, refunds processed through our own systems on property can take between 7 and 10 business days to materialize on your banking statement but, with the refund being processed through Booking.com and with the weekend leading into the Holiday, it will take a bit longer than that. I am available to speak with you during regular business hours for the rest of the week if you would like to reach out to me, at your convenience.

Debra, I understand your frustration. Unfortunately, with the number of King rooms we have in our hotel, we are unable to 100% Guarantee that you will get your preferred floor. We hate that your sink and your closet caused some issues during your stay. They have been fixed, thanks to your reporting, and will no longer be an issue for our future guests.
