After A LOOONG morning full of excitement and anxiety. It was time to check in into my hotel; For my 21st birthday. BRIAN gave me the MOST outstanding customer service. He made sure that I was WELL taken care of and told me what’s in the city, places I should visit, and what kind of activities I couldn’t do due to COVID-19. I honestly just stayed in the hotel for my 21st (for 3 nights) just because of the comfortability and the GREAT customer service Brian applied. This is definitely my first review. And if I could give Brian a 500 - 1,000 tip. I would. Thank you For COMPLETING MY 21st!
