Additional Notes

Complaint: Bad room and poor hospitality and service I was put in a terrible room over the busy street and driveway and had to be moved 3 times before an acceptable room. Service was horrible as the wait to order food poolside was over an hour and there were no pool chairs. When ordering towels, water etc the wait was excessive if the items came at all. Many of the staff was rude and disrespectful. The phones in the rooms did not work properly including voice mail. The elevators were very slow. There were lines everywhere all the time as the hotel was understaffed for the amount of guest. There was a lack of privacy as staff tried to enter my room while I was taking a shower, my room key was deactivated while I was still in house. Management never responded to the many messages I left them and over charged me at check out. I complained to starwood corporate and the hotel did nothing other than close my complaint

Desired Settlement: Refund of $503
