          What I would like to know is why if you are reviewing an establishment, you find it necessary to review the concierge and what are you hoping for ? That he will lose his job because of you - why didn't you just mention all your horrors to the manager/owner and refrain from sing a public forum to just kill the poor guys confidence and possibly his job. What a horrible thing to do.
