I choose to stay at this hotel on business . I booked a room for a week-long stay . After awhile in the room, I noticed a lot of loud guest noise happening above me which perpetually kept going on, including running and furniture moving and some sort of ball dropping repeatedly for over 4 hours . It was particularly important for me to get a decent night's rest , and so I visited the front desk , explaining the noise situation to the front desk assistant (named JJ) and requesting a different room . She initially refused , telling me that it was too late in the day to change rooms, that she was worried that she would get in trouble with her boss , and that she couldn't move me because changing rooms "cost the hotel money " . I said that I really preferred to change to different room and asked again. She replied "Fine!" and seemed upset and angry, but did assign me another room .
The second room was an improvement during the next two days of my stay, until I began to notice cigarette smoke coming into the room , which ended up being someone smoking below my window on the first floor and in a more remote part of the building area directly below my room . I ignored it but after it happened a few times, I decided the following day that it truly was a problem and that I needed to talk to someone about changing rooms . This time I approached the front desk , I encountered Sue , the hotel manager and owner , who was immediately rude and dismissive to me, and was bristling with hostility and attitude. Sue declared that she was "not going to move me" , even accusing me of moving four times , which was obviously incorrect. I thought maybe she's having a bad day or had misinformation , which she acknowledged she did have misinformation , but remained unapologetic , just as rude or more so than her assistant JJ , and still refused to move me at my request . She also repeated to me what JJ had said , that it cost her money to change rooms , which apparently was at the true root of her refusals . I travel much of time on business at various hotels and I have to say that I've never been treated in such a demeaning way by a hotel manager . It was nearly laughable, if it hadn't been so insulting . I'll never stay at this hotel location again because of this negative experience I cannot recommend it to anyone because should they have an issue , I wouldn't want them to be treated as I was . Also, on another note , I booked this hotel with the understanding that parking as included with my room rate and total cost , and yet the hotel charged my credit card for daily parking fees. less
