"Wedding party reservation was well taken care of throughout."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Christopher was a huge help in our satisfaction at this location. We had a huge wedding party staying there and had 10 rooms reserved for two nights. He made sure everyone was taken care of and all the charges to our credit card were correct. If we did not have his assistance with our reservation we would have been less satisfied. He called me several times before our arrival to make sure we had all of our guests taken care of. He deserves a big raise. Thank you Christopher for all of your help. You were awesome.
