After 45 years serving retail customers I retired and my wife and I planned our dream vacation. The Savoy Hotel in Rome was our first stop. From the time we arrived; there was no one to help us get our bags from the street; the surly desk clerk told us we would have a queen bed......we had two twin beds with "sandpaper" quality sheets, no more than 200 thread count, shoved together and made up separated; the only way to get a cup of coffee was to buy the 15 euro breakfast, otherwise I had to walk to a bar a block away (I am not making this up!); called to see if they had an iron we could use and you would thought I had ask them to kill themselves....certainly not, but they had a service we could use (I could have bought a new set of clothes for the price); the room was postage stamp size; the towels were the thickness of a cup towel; but the main problem was the attitude of the staff........you would have thought I was interrupting some sort of global strategy conference when I asked a question at the front desk......beyond rude, total contempt on the part of the staff.....never seen anything like it in all my years and world travels. No way this is a 4 star, for that matter a 2 star.....NO WAY!!
