"Groves Wedding Weekend Hotel Block."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I am very disappointed with the Sheraton and my guests and I do not plan on staying at this hotel again in the future. We used this hotel as the sole hotel for all out of town guests coming to Raleigh for a wedding. More than 70% of the wedding guests were from out of town this was a significant block for the hotel. However, a week before the wedding, the hotel broke its contract of the secured king bed to two double bed ratio and moved guests who had booked months prior to king bed rooms. This caused anxiety, confusion and chaos as families of four now had to figure out how to sleep in a hotel room with one king bed. When guests addressed this with the hotel their only response was to deal with it or find another hotel knowing full well that was no longer an option for us. There was another breach in the contract that clearly stated the discounted room rate was available +/ three days prior to the event. When family tried to extend their stay, the hotel refused to provide them with the room block rate instead offered them an outrageous rate, forcing them to book at another hotel. With all of this, the hotel did not contact me, the bride and the one who signed the agreement, to help address the issue. Instead they frustrated guests, caused me stress and offered nothing to help compensate this disaster. Nothing was done at the hotel to make me feel special. You would think that with checking in, they would have my name, knowing that a full weekend was about to begin and special attention should be made. This hotel clearly has arrogance from being a downtown hotel and takes no regard to their guests. They do whatever they want without consequence because they feed off the knowledge that there are only a few hotels downtown so why not charge outrageous rates, break contracts and treat their guests with little regard?.
