Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Zero customer service or help
Terrible experience overall. We never completed our stay as we had to cancel our wedding and honeymoon due to COVID, and being unable to travel to Europe due to restrictions. told us not to cancel our booking until they had updated their COVID policy and until they had spoken to the hotel. Unfortunately this hotel then refused to refund or provide a credit for a future stay (despite all of the other hotels we booked for our trip offering goodwill and providing future travel credit). We are all hurting but this hotel has been truly awful to deal with zero customer service and we have lost all of our money for this stay for what was meant to be our honeymoon. have been no help either. Abhorrent behavior from both and the hotel and a truly disappointing and exhausting experience.
