There is a shining light in this hotel and her name is Maria. She helped get a parking permit sorted for my compromised husband when the car park was full, she continued into the evening helping sort out alternatives at the depleted bar and she was STILL there in the morning availing herself at breakfast time, continuing to work above and beyond the call of duty. The place was so understaffed. I truly believe that without MARIA the place would fall apart.
