"Good Location"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The hotel is in a good location. Couple things 1) the night the checked in the clerk at the desk holds up the room information for everyone behind you can see your room number. She did this to the person in front of us as well. Surprisingly we did have a line of about five people behind us. I thought it was unprofessional and an invasion of privacy. We also had something going on in the room above us all night. Jumping on the floor I guess. it was very annoying.

"Somehow was charged for 2 rooms"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
My American express card statement is showing a room charges for 2 rooms same dates, same name. One is for $156.43 the other is for $178..77 the reservation # is the same. I had a problem when trying to book the room in Lancaster, OH, somehow I was switched to Columbus, OH. When I called the Holiday Inn Express in Columbus, they said they could not cancel my room because a third party (??) was involved. I then called the 1-800 number and they cancelled the room in Columbus. I even mentioned this when I checked into Lancaster, and they said "you have to be careful" when booking on-line. I do hope you can clear this up, and I don't have to get American Express involved. I made a copy of the cancellation #, I just have to find it now. jeanne sparks typist54@yahoo.com 419-475-6759

"Kudos to Jackie, and many thanks to your service. I never would have known about that particular hotel, and even if I eventually did find it, it would have taken me days to accomplish what I did in 15 minutes with you. Now our entire group can look forward to a care-free stay at the perfect rate at the perfect location. I've never been this organized this far in advance of an event, so thanks for making me look good!" K.S. - Vancouver, WA
