Additional Notes

Complaint: I entered Sheraton Hotels @SheratonHotels #DelightMyDelay Twitter Sweepstakes in December 2015. I was notified via email on January 2, 2016 that I won a Portable Charging Device in the Sheraton Delight My Delay Sweepstakes. (I have the official winning email directly from Sheraton.) I have repeatedly tried contacting Sheraton via email, Twitter Direct Message, Tweet, and Facebook. They have not responded directly to me at all. I am personally aware of hundreds of other people who also won a prize in this sweepstakes who also have not received their prize nor received a response from Sheraton. At this point I've waited almost 3 months and my patience has ran out with trying to get a response from Sheraton. Please help!

Desired Settlement: I want Sheraton to fulfill my prize that I won.

Additional Notes

Complaint: I booked a room through ********** so me and my wife could enjoy the seahawks game in seattle. Some how the dates of the booking got mixed up and it booked for the wrong date sunday nov 23rd. I needed it for the 8th. So I called both ********** and the sheraton and both said there was nothing they could do and I was not going to get a refund. I noticed this mistake with in 15 min of booking the reservation. I could see them not refunding me if it was a last min cancellation, however the booking was two weeks out and it was only 15 min after the I placed the booking. I had to call my bank and they went back and forth over the matter for over an hour and a half. They were able to get ********* to cancel even if they had to eat the cost. I cant believe I had to go through all of this hassle of over two hours all together to get this handled. I always thought of the sheraton as an up scale hotel and a nice place to stay. But now I am second guessing their business practices. what happen to the customer is always right. This has been a horrible experience for me. Due to all of the time it took to take care of this matter I ran out of time and had to settle for a less then accommodating room that i was not satisfied with. Product_Or_Service: Hotel room Account_Number: XXXXXXXXXXXX

Desired Settlement: DesiredSettlementID: Replacement I have not got the cash back at this time yet but the reservation was cancelled. However it ruined my wife's birthday and that is not something I can get back in cash. What I would like is a free room for a night of my choosing at a later date to make this up to my wife. I expect more then this from a hotel of your standings.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 6, 2014/11/14) */ Contact Name and Title: ******* ********** Contact Phone: ************ Contact Email: ****************** Thank you for your comments regarding your interaction with our hotel. I understand that your experience with the hotel and the third party booking vendor has been very frustrating. I have researched your reservation and it appears that the third party booking vendor has cancelled your reservation and should be providing you with a refund. It can take up to 10 business days for this to occur. I have asked our accounting department to follow-up with the vendor to ensure that the refund has been processed. I wish we could have been of more help, but we never receive any information, other than your name, from these vendors. We are not able to provide a refund as we didn't have your credit card information. However, we would like the opportunity to provide you with a positive experience at our hotel. We will send you a gift certificate for an overnight stay valid for one year. Please provide me with your mailing address. We look forward to welcoming you to the Sheraton Seattle Hotel.
