This hotel appears to be unable to bill correctly. As usual, a credit card is demanded on check-in. Since my bill was covered by the committee whose meeting I was attending (and who had made the reservation in my name/for me) I requested that it be billed. That took some discussion and eventually the administrator came down & --we thought--sorted out the billing. A bill showing a 0 balance was slid underneath my door so I thought the hotel staff had actually gotten the matter straight.
NO. When my credit card bill arrived, MY card had been charged for the room. I have had to contact the administrator, and extra work has been generated for myself and the administrator --in addition to the time spent at the hotel (time wasted as it turns out) all because the hotel staff or the hotel software could not cope with a very simply request and arrangement. One other hotel chains had had NO PROBLEM with.
In other respects, the hotel was ok. Not great but acceptable.
