Customer Service Issues
On March 11th and 12th my husband and I checked into The resort to celebrate my husbands birthday. On the morning of the 12th a housekeeping employee pushed out door open without knocking. We had a loud fan going AND a DO NOT DISTURB card in the door so it was obvious the room was occupied. I had the door barely cracked to fresh air into the room because I smoke and my husband does not. He hit me with the door when he pushed it open. I looked at him and he said sorry and left. I called the front desk and was told I would get a call back which never came. On the morning of the 13th as we checked out I decided to speak with the manager about this. I was sent over to speak with *********** After I explained what had happened she started to tell me that it could have been the bathroom fan he heard so I interrupted her to tell that was not possible. You can't possibly mistake this fan fir a bathroom fan it is to loud! After I said this she made her eyes really small and cocked her head and just stated at me silently fur a full minute or more. Then she finally said "can I finish?" At this point I became upset and asked to speak to someone else. At this point I got slightly loud as u felt she stared me to deliberately make me feel uncomfortable and it worked. I then spoke with **** who assured me everything would be handled. We went to lunch but I was just very upset at this point over how I was treated because we have didn't thousands of dollars here over the last few months. I went back and spoke with **** once again to let her know how upset I was over how ****** treated me. A few minutes later as I was going to the restroom a lady named ***** stopped me and said **** had asked her to find me and talk to me. I told her what happened and she asked if we were staying the night so she could do something for us. I told her no we were on the way out. She then told me when we came back to call her directly in the ********** **** so she could personally handle our reservations. I told her we would call her. So imagine my surprise today March 19th when I received two certified letters from the resorts security department. The security investigator Mr ****** R ****** stated in these letters we have been permanently EVICTED from Eldorado. It stated no reason. I then called **** who seemed shocked and said she would call back. I then called security to ask what we did and they did not know. I then called Mr ****** directly and asked him what we did to which he said he did not know. He said he gets directives from the Assistant General Manager mr ****** ****** telling him who to ban and he does it. I then sent Mr ****** an email asking what we did. I have not received a response. I did not threaten anyone, act violent, use bad language or ANYTHING that would be deserving of this letter. The only thing we have ever done is go there spend lots and lots of money and leave. This is the first time I have EVER complained about anything. We do not get rowdy or act up in any fashion whatsoever. I only slightly raised my voice because I was very upset. I would like to know how this went from "you weren't treated right, call is and we will make it up to you" to "you are evicted from our resort"! We thought we were receiving a letter to tell us everything had been handled and they were sorry for how we got treated!

Desired Settlement
I want to talk to Mr ****** and find out what we did to deserve this. I want to talk to management in corporate about Mr ******* ******* and ***** from the ambassador room who told me she would handle this.

Business Response
Re: Case # ******** - ******* *******

Eldorado Casino Shreveport Joint Venture ("Eldorado") is in receipt of the letter dated March 23, 2015, wherein Eldorado was the subject of complaint filed by ******* *******.

On March 13, 2015, at approximately 10:30 a.m., ******* ******* (#XXXXXXX) and *** ******* (#XXXXXXX) checked out of a smoking room **** in our hotel. Upon check out, Mrs. ******* spoke to ****** ********* Manager on Duty, regarding an incident that occurred during her stay. The incident occurred on March 12, 2015, where a housekeeping employee entered room **** to service it since the door was ajar to indicate a guest had checked out of the room. After knocking on the door and entering, the employee inadvertently bumped Mrs. ******* with the door and immediately apologized and exited the room. It appears Mrs. ******* was not pleased with the encounter and wanted to express her displeasure with the Manager on Duty.

While Mrs. ******* was discussing the encounter with the Manager on Duty, she spoke in a raised voice that drew the attention of others that were moving about in the hotel pavilion. ****** realized that she was unable to assist Mrs. ******* and called **** ********** Player Development Host, for assistance. **** escorted Mrs. ******* and her husband into our Ambassador Lounge to ascertain the nature of her complaint. Mrs. ******* continued in a raised voice by expressing her displeasure with the room incident and her discussions with ******* **** determined that she was unable to help Mrs. *******, and ****** ******** Executive Administrative Assistant, attempted to assist Mrs. ******* with her complaint.

****** tried on several attempts to calm Mrs. ******* to ease the tension, but the attempts were unsuccessful. Upon review, management determined that Mrs. ******* behavior was consistent with disorderly conduct and permanently evicted her from the property.

Eldorado regrets the occurrence of this incident and continues to promote excellent customer service in a warm environment for all customers. Your consideration of this response is greatly appreciated. If additional information is needed, please call me at XXX-XXXX.

Respectfully submitted,


****** *******

Consumer Response
It seems everyone at Eldorado is dishonest. From housekeeping emotes that try to enter rooms with do not disturb cards and fans going all the way up to management. I did not raise my voice until ****** was extremely rude to me. I was not raising my voice when I spoke to ****** ******** She knows this. ****** told me **** asked her to find me because she felt so bad for us. I am in shock at the dishonesty of the employees at Eldorado. I'm not sure why I expected better. But since it seems you have banded together and gotten your "story" straight I am defenseless against you. Thankfully I have decided not to let a bunch of crooked people at a CASINO control how I feel for one more second. In fact I'm very happy we are funding our trip to Florida next month with money we would have spent on you! Things always work out for the best! In closing I want to thank Eldorado for making my life better!
