I wasn't really able to enjoy myself as much as I wanted to. There were way too many tourist buses nonstop, therefore it was overcrowded at times. The staff may have been a little undermanned for such a rush of people but I'm sure they handled it as best as they could have. I'm not sure if there was a special event going on but there were constant bus loads of people.
I also received confusing information as far as my pets. I was told that it was fine if I bought them. I received numerous compliments on how well they were behaved from the staff and guests. People even took pictures with my dogs. With them being trained show dogs, I receive this kind of attention very often. Even a nice young man on their staff bought my dogs a bone!
The part that was confusing is an older man that was working, the bellhop I'm guessing told my friend that it was hotel policy/regulation to have mussels on my dogs or we could not stay. No one told us this at all, and then as soon as this incident happened, I received a call from the desk saying that my dogs were running the corridor??? This was strange because I never let the dogs roam without leashes, and even at the time, hotel guests were taking pictures with my dogs. The only person that had something negative to say was the older man, so I'm still a little lost as far as what really happened because it was never clarified.
As far as service, there were three people that had the best service hands down to me overall. I wish I remembered their names. One was the woman that worked the American Bar...The other two were a young woman and young man that were wearing black suits and showing people to their rooms.
