Additional Notes

Complaint: On June 17 2015, I drove my car to the Mayflower Hotel Restaurant. I left the hotel Valet the key to my to park my car while attending a meeting in the hotel. After the meeting I went to get my car and was informed by the Valet driver that my car would no longer drive forward. I asked him where my car was and he informed me that the car was still in the garage where they parked it. I went to the garage and discovered that the car had been driven and parked in reverse gear (the key to the car can not be removed unless the car is parked in reverse). Upon arrival I discovered that that car had been broken into reverse gear.I had the car towed to my shop where the mechanic informed me that the driver must have broken the car for it to be in this state. I informed the hotel about this situation and they refused to take blame and said that since the car was old, they cannot be sure that the car was broken while in their care, hence, they will not cover the expenses to repair my car.

Desired Settlement: I would appreciate if the hotel would cover the expenses for the repair of my car. The Mechanic has talked to them and informed them that the car was damaged in their care. I want the hotel to cover the cost for the repair for my car.

Business Response: Dear ********* *****:

Thank you for your letter regarding complaint ID # ********.

We have been parking cars for our guests and meeting attendees since the automobile was invented,
as we have been in Seattle for 88 years. Thus, the amount of cars we park for are in the
thousands and we always take the utmost care in parking all of our cars.

However, the car that you are referring to is a car that is close to 40 years old and has had a
history of repairs that come with vintage cars. Our disclaimer on every valet parking ticket
explains that we are not responsible for "mechanical defects". This is a standard policy with
valet parking services as the owner has more knowledge of their own cars than we do. If valet
parking services were responsible for all mechanical defects for the cars they parked, how could
this service be provided?

The complainant needs to address his own insurance policy company and use his collision or
comprehensive coverage. That is the proper course of action. Perhaps, the complainant does not
have this coverage, and only has general liability insurance. This could be a possibility.

In addition, guests with vintage cars, often park on their own, due to the unique nature of their

Consumer Response:

Greetings BBB and the Mayflower Hotel:


     I am rejecting this responds because after I contacted the local news channel and they took my story to the airways it became very clear that the reason the car was rendered inoperative was due to the faulty driving habits of the Valet driver. Not too long after they were contacted by the local news reporter, and not before they, the hotel decided to fully the cost of my repairs. I am very glad that they had decided to chain their tune however I should not have come to this. I made several phone calls to the hotel owner, I let them contact my local mechanic and still, after speaking to him felt that they where not at fault. I feel that if the news had decided against airing my story I would have taken me considerable longer to recover the cost and time getting my car repaired.


     In the end, the hotel has decided to cover my expenses in full. I am appreciative of their change of position and hope in the future they will exercise much better customer service in responding to customers complaints instead of just washing your hands of the issue and forcing people to take drastic measures to get your attention.


Thanks for the late support,
