"Nice rooms to stay, but terrible customer service."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
I stayed here with my bridesmaids to get ready for my wedding. And this place was lovely as far as quality of room and location to my venue. However, it was quite difficult to get the rooms that we needed. I had called several times to set the accommodations that I needed and every time would receive different information. I was promised rooms together, then was told that it would not be possible, then again that if I called closer to the reservation date that at least two of the four rooms would be close enough, needless to say this was not the case. When I called the day of check in the woman on the phone was incredibly rude and I wished I had asked for a last name but all I remember was her first, Stephanie. During our stay not only I, but several of my guests were scolded for actions that were not ours. My younger sister was accused for trash by her door that was there BEFORE she arrived. Upon noting that it was not hers, she was still berated for the action. I was questioned several times upon leaving my room, or the other bridesmaids rooms if I would be up "partying" late, when it was clearly the men celebrating another wedding. They were nice when talking to them, but it was very clear who was making the noise and I thought it was unnecessary the way Stephanie had approached me. Honestly I saw her too many times patrolling the hallways. I will surely never come back to this location and I will strongly recommend against it to other friends and family. I will also follow up with the wedding venue so that they know of the terrible service that my guests continuously received.
