Additional Notes

Complaint: I checked in on 3/12/15 and had multiple problems with the accommodations. I experienced everything from a leak in the ceiling from the rm above to peeling paint[poss lead based] rust in the tub,window over the shower/tub without coverings,broken radiators/cold room,dysfunctional door locks,mice in the entrance & courtyard,huge gaps under the doors,a broken window pane in one closed with a air-gap that ****** the maintenance man had to repair. To add insult to injury I was bitten in one of the rooms I thought would suffice. The housekeepers did not change the blankets nor comforters in ANY of the rooms which explains the lice,tick or flea bites I received. I spent two nights in a room with NO Heat and was FORCED to leave on 3/15/15 in the middle of the night to seek adequate accommodations. As if this *horrific* experience wasn't bad enough ******* **** office- manager had the audacity to not only attempt to justify the blatant disrespect i received via a couple of her staff by calling me a liar for the inadequacy of their rooms. I was made to wait an extra day to checkout and was charged for that day.I was told by ******* that I would receive money back for the day I was made to stay but that was a lie as the rate for that day does not add up to the overcharge I received on my credit card. Nor does it reimburse me for the horrific nights I was there nor does it rectify that I was bitten by bugs in their hotel and literally spent two nights in a room with NO heat.

Desired Settlement: Breech Of ContractI want the hotel to reimburse me the $500 dollars in CASH I paid them for a 30 night stay which they could not accommodate.The $200 hold for *incidentals* needs to be released. Total refund for the $250 Over-charge I received moments before my mid-night FORCED departure and the cab fair .This hotel received Over $950 dollars in cash and or credit from me AND simply DID NOT HONOR THE CONTRACT AGREEMENT I SIGNED WITH THEIR ESTABLISHMENT FOR A 30 NIGHT STAY . Health Dept...

Business Response: While I'm certainly sorry that our property was not to this guest's satisfaction, I do believe that we did everything in our power to ensure a pleasant stay, and that our properties were simply to not to her personal preference.  We are a historic boutique hotel, and you'll find from many of our online reviews that most enjoy the character that comes along with this.  However, these properties are not for everyone, and I encourage all potential guests to do their due diligence and research prior to deciding on a place to stay.

This guest started out at our sister property, The ******** ******  Due to the lower rate, she opted to stay at the Inn at Queen Anne instead.  She pre-paid her stay in cash, which was made clear to her was non-refundable.  She was presented with a contracting stating this to be true.  Due to the circumstances, we did in fact refund her for the unused portion of the stay when she opted to check out early.  The excess paid in cash was refunded to her credit card.  Additionally, we honored her low extended stay rate for the dates she stayed, even though it was contingent on a longer stay.  During Ms. ****** stay, she moved to seven different rooms at the Inn at Queen Anne; having a separate complaint about each one.  Our engineering staff is in each room on property on a regular basis to ensure all facilities are functioning properly - none of the rooms Ms. ***** was in were found to have any outstanding maintenance concerns.  Likewise, we have all of our rooms inspected on a regular basis by a professional pest control company, and did so again upon the accusations made by Ms. *****.  No trace of pests were found.  Ms. ***** is a heavy smoker, as is evident by heavy smoke odor in all of the rooms she occupied, and evidence of smoking was found in several of the room in which she stayed.  Although, having a signed registration card stating that a $200 fee would be assessed for any evidence of smoking in the rooms, we decided it most prudent to not do so in this case and to just let Ms. ***** be on her way.

I've attached all documentation related to Ms. ****** stay for review, and am happy to answer any further questions regarding her stay.  Again, I'm sincerely sorry that her stay was less than favorable, but I truly believe that we did everything in our power to accommodate her as best we could.  I hope that she has future success in seeking out properties that are more suitable to her personal preferences.
