"What a nightmare!"
October 2018
The hotel cleaning service came into our room and broke my laptop while I was at Universal studios. I tried to talk to James Shakir, the General Manager. He refused to call me back for days and when I finally stood at the front desk and refused to leave without talking to him, he was incredibly rude, told me that he wasnt going to do anything to resolve the matter and refused to give me information of a corporate number, Instead he claimed to be the owner of choice hotels!!! This was the worst experience Ive ever had at ANY HOTEL!!! Do Not Stay Here!!!!!!!!!!
