I requested to get into our room early when booking the room because we were driving 9hrs and wanted to get a shower before going to Richmond Speedway for the NASCAR race.
About a hour outside of Richmond I called to make sure our room would be available to get in. I was told there was a room but they could not hold it. If someone else came and wanted to get in early they would get the room. Guess that sorta defeats the purpose of making the request if anyone can not request it in their reservation and get in.
Arrived at the hotel and they had some kind of meeting/convention going on with really really loud talking going on in the lobby. Having driven 9hrs this was not really what I was wanting to hear. We aren't talking a couple women. We are talking hundreds of women all talking loud.
We were given a room and went up to the room to find out that it was already occupied. So glad the people were not in the room. Went back down and got a different room which took about 5 minutes to get. Went to the room and turned the temp down as low as it would go which was only 60 degrees. I like it cold when it is hot out. Mind you it was in the 80's all day long.
Returned from the track and went up to the room to find it warm. Too warm! Called down to the desk and was told there was nobody there to fix it. I had stayed in a Sheraton in Chicago and had a problem late and night and they had someone there. Nobody on property to help with the problem. Lucky for me I guess I had not had sleep for 41 hours. Others in the room though were not as tired as I and had to deal with the temp.
