    Ruben with all due respect I think you need to let this go.You are the only person ever to have had this problem at this hotel.Since your review not one person has said anything about this nor had they before your review. My own experience was as others have commented;that the desk staff were very pleasant,friendly and helpful. I wasn't with you when this supposedly happened so I cannot call you a liar but IMHO something just doesn't ring right about your complaint. I will always be heppy to recommend this hotel to others.
