Nice hotel for the money Easily accessible from the parkway Ample parking

I had a two-double bed suit The front parlor has a mini fridge, microwave wet bar, TV and sofa-bed The bathroom is a little dated but good water pressure and clean Pool was on the smaller size They have a full bar and you can order appetizers Nice lounge areas to mingle Great buffet breakfast which takes sanitary and health precautions into account Jennifer who assisted us at the main desk was awesome I used the App to check-in and it was great I was able to select my room and use my phone as my room key One of the downfalls of the App they do not tell you that you need to visit the front desk to get passes to utilize some of the amenities of the hotel This is a family friendly hotel

We booked our room through a secondary app that Embassy Suites works with, and they somehow lost the room we booked (two rooms that were combined with double beds and a pull out couch) and switched it with a single KingAfter a little arguing and showing proof of the confirmation of our room, the front desk was able to find an available room close to what we ordered & paid for And the staff was being friendly and helpful during the dilemma/confusion

So I would recommend that if you book a reservation through a secondary travel app–ALWAYS call up the particular hotel immediately after you obtain your confirmation from the secondary app to ensure that your reservation matches what Embassy Suites received from the travel app That way you can avoid what we went through before you arriveThat said, the room was clean as was the entire public spaces The breakfast comps (a coupon per person/per overnight stay) were handed over via a coupon We were also handed a complimentary ‘welcome drink’ for the evening for every adult in our reservation who was 21+ but none of us used itThe breakfast in the morning was well organized, ample beverage choices (coffee, tea, milk, juices) with a fresh fruit section, cereal to choose from, scratch-made pancakes and omelettes (I would recommend) & french toast (needs to be improved) with fried potatoes and your choice of breakfast meats–either bacon or sausage (bacon was paper thin and very salty, so maybe the sausage was a better choice, but we all had the bacon)Anyhow, the room was comfortable and clean You can change the temperature to fit your preference The bathroom was a good size and there was an additional sink in the room with the beds as well a wet bar sink in the lounge area of our room The lounge area was a little on the small size but workableI’d say that this room was a bit overpriced in comparison to where I’ve stayed at in prior trips at different hotels (those have larger rooms & larger lounge areas in the rooms), but overall it was okay for a single night’s stayPrice point to what we received: I personally would stay at one of the other hotel chains that I’m alluding to over this one, especially since the main reason we chose this location was for the pool (which was closed due to Covid restrictions) So for all intensive purposes, we were in a smaller room than what I know we could have stayed at for about 100 dollars less with similar breakfast deals but the other chains lack the displayed ambiance you’re greeted and surrounded by when you enter into this hotel’s lobby & public areas

Melissa L

The breakfast was delicious! Loved the omelets! The main foyer area was beautiful (bravo to the architect) If you have to spend a few days here you would enjoy sitting by the fountain or taking a leisurely walk along the pondOur room was clean and spacious, but we did have to change it upon arrival due to a small leak in the bathroom

The staff was pleasant and friendly, and a special thank-you to Heraldo who was very kind and helped us with our room changeOverall it was a very enjoyable experience and I highly recommend this hotel

We arrived and was given a room that upon first entry was clean and it appeared everything was fine The room happened to be on the side with a lot of street traffic, which made sleeping the first night completely impossible That next morning, we realized the a/c didn’t work properly and we had an unwanted “guest” (rhymes with coach!) in our bathroom

We spoke with Amanda at the front desk and she was able to move us to the opposite side of the hotel room we were in THAT room was also clean, a/c worked and sleep that night was great! Breakfast selection was nice Amanda is the reason I’m able to give this hotel a better rating than I would have if we stayed in the room we were given

Thallis Miranda

We were very disappointed, I have never left a bad review in any of the dozens of hotels I’ve stayed through the country or world Lights weren’t working, service at front desk neglected to take requests Other customer complaining constantly, one gentleman checked in his room and small daughter to find blood stains on bed sheets

Last time we stayed there we loved it (about 2 years ago) seems like no updates have been done at all since, neither has any repairs There was puke in the entrance sink to the room The paper towel at the lobby men’s bathroom was empty for all 4 days we stayed there Breakfast was dry and cold, attendant didn’t care much when advised about breakfast essentials such as cups and food ran out We paid the same price for what we could’ve paid staying in Manhattan Unfortunately we will not be recommending this hotel neither will we be returning again

Mario Jones

The rooms in this place are extremely out dated and unsanitary However the ladies at the front desk were extremely nice and helpful, that’s the reason why I gave this place at least (2) star’s The breakfast was non existent, no juice only water, nothing but cereal and bread, a few old stale bagels and boiled eggs

We used to love this place, but I can’t imagine recommending this place any longer to my company HR department when our travelers fly into liberty airport

Nice clean spacious rooms in a great location, the gym is well equipped as well There wasn’t a microwave, or fridge in the rooms which is a negative but doable seeing as the hotel also has a stocked bar that serves great food The reason for the 3 star review is a private event rented out the bar and kicked all paying hotel guests out, highly inconvenient and will affect my choices and recommendation in the future

Update: The bartender’s servers and other employees that I had the pleasure of interacting with deserve 5 stars, they are amazing people that are doing a fantastic job (even the bartender that said we could not be served because of the private event, he was fantastic the following night no hard feelings he was just doing what he was told) The place in general is 4 stars The rating is strictly off of general upkeep, there are a few blemishes that could use some professional touches to ensure the maintenance personnel are able to keep up a 5 star appearance

Kimberly Bean

Great location… an easy commute to the city I like being outside of the hustle and bustle, noise, crime, and grit of NYC The hotel itself isa five minute walk to the train

The room are spacious and clean Whenever I call for service, they send someone right away Friday & Saturday night jazz in the cafe is an outstanding bonus I am very happy I chose this place

Humaira Kazmi

Stay away from this hotel This rooms were dirty, bathrooms were not clean, furniture was old and dinged Service was horrible

We got in at 11 am at night and there were 2 couples before us waiting for their room They were told that they couldn’t find their reservation Those poor people showed them that they booked thru Hilton Instead of talking to these people and apologizing that they double booked, the front desk called cops Long story short, same thing happened to us They couldn’t find our reservation and had double booked and gave our rooms to someone else, even though we are Hilton honor members and booked through Hilton website After an hour and a half, they gave us a room with a King ( we had reserved a queen- 2 adults and 2 kids) The room was dirty The floor was not clean Front desk had to go down and get us towels The bathroom was dirty as well and there was a half used shower gel left in the shower stallWe could not sleep at all as this room faced the garage and had unloading loading noises all throughout the night and early morning After talking to the front desk, they finally shifted to a room with two queens and gave us free breakfast, the next day which was niceThe room that they switched us to was clean but of course the furniture was old and had scratches and dings on it The front desk manager was nice told us that we wont be charged for that night as a courtesy and she apologized However, they charged us for NO SHOW for the first nightThis hotel has lot of problems Younger lady at front desk was very rude did not apologize They have horrible serviceIf they are negative ratings, I would give them a negative 10 Do yourself a favor and do not stay at this hotel The only good thing about this hotel was eclectic decor

Remember to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking any hotel They compare hundreds of booking websites and usually will have rates a lot cheaper than others! Thank me later on! This resort is the best rated in this area

I’ve been staying here for a very long time If you decide to stay here you for sure won’t be disappointedRooms are clean and so is the lobby and hotel overall I’ve stayed at a number of hotels in the area and the Heldrich is one of the nicest One of the great things about this hotel is it’s surrounded by a lot of restaurants You can literally walk across the street and be at a number of fine dining restaurants within 40 feet of the hotel doors It simply makes life easier if you are visiting in the area Hotel management is very nice and accommodating as well

Grisel Johnson

We were traveling from out of town and stayed here for a night Room was very big and spacious No complaints except that room service did not come unless I requested a clean

Also I stepped on a pin needle?! I let the cleaning room service know and she saw it her self She plainly said we clean the carpet when we vacuum but we don’t always guarantee that everything comes up! They are so lucky my 5 year old or crawling 11 month old did not get stuck with it…or else there would be a lawsuit pending! Manager was nice to offer us free breakfast but unfortunately our flight was leaving at 3am and couldn’t accept his offer Management was suppose to get back with us about the incident and still haven’t heard back I would not recommend this hotel not very professional at all

Bhaumik Parekh

We had the worst experience staying at this hotel! I would not recommend it to anybody as their staff service is worst than a motel We paid $500 for 2 nights that is way expensive than any 3-4 stars hotel considering that we will also get good service from the staff for the price that we paid but that was not the case We asked for microwave and they told us we will be charged $25 for it, first of all which good hotel charges for microwave

We were ready to pay for it at the end but turned out they did not even have one in their inventory!We asked for extra comforter as I was feeling too cold and their thermostat was also not working to set the temperature, they did not give extra comforter as well We kept waiting but staff did not provide anything The phone was also not working from room so every time for any room service we had to go all the way down ourselvesWorst place to stay , please do not waste your money here as we already wasted ours!

We enjoyed our stay here My family stayed in the 2 queen suite with pullout couch The beds were comfortable

Shower pressure was strong The breakfast was okay They had a variety to choose from each morning There was always coffee in the lobby as well We stayed here to visit NYC, which was about 30 min with traffic to the Staten Island ferry Which I highly recommend My youngest daughter enjoyed the pool as well Water temps were comfortable… the hot tub could have been a little warmer To access the pool and fitness area you need to have the front desk personnel key you in, which u thought was weirdThey do not provide bedding for the pullout couch so u need to call down for that but they are prompt once called The road it’s on is quite busy but I honestly didn’t hear any traffic until late morning I would stay here again

B Reveau

I used to think of Holiday Inn Expresses as no-frills but pleasant stays Not anymore The room reeked of mold and mildew with damp carpet and blankets

I tried desperately to sleep and woke up at 4 AM unable to sleep anymore because of the moldy smell, finding mold on the window I could feel the cells of disease growing in my body because of the mold On the positive side, the breakfast was good, the room was clean except for the mold, and the check-in woman was nice The breakfast area was extremely hot and unpleasant, however The jacuzzi in the pool area was too cold and had an unbearable amount of chlorine that stung my eyes I can see from the other reviews the hotel staff lie in response to that allegation and state some part of the pool is broken – clearly not true A horrible place to which I vow to never return and couldn’t wait to come home to advise others to steer clear – unless you love breathing mold through your nose and mouth all night

bevin holcroft

This place was horrible! By far the worst hotel I have ever stayed in! Our “suite” smelled of old cigarettes and fresh marijuana There were children screaming and running up and down the halls until after 1:30am When I checked out at 4am to catch a flight, there was were suspicion dealing going on out of the front of the hotel

Do not stay here!!! My in-laws stayed at the comfort inn and had a very nice night, I suggest that as a much better option!

Stayed here for a lacrosse tournament in July Hotel is huge Rooms are large and the bed was comfortable

When we walked in the smell of stale cigarette smoke was overwhelming, there was the smell of old pot smoke when we got off the elevator Ice machine was out of order on our floor and we had to go up 3 floors There was no cold water even after lettingit run for quite some timewhich confused me

Armando Porroa

This is a nice place with a little old infraestructure but still enjoyable and with a touch of beautiful old fashioned details Rooms are still tidy and neat Remember that due to COVID-19 the cleaning is not every single day, but maybe after every 2 or 3 days

Large parking area around for free for guests Buffet breaks is pretty good with fresh options as fruits, yogurt, eggs done at your request or you can always take regular scrambled eggs from the table of hot dishesPersoneñ seems to be very helpful and are always trying to help you with everything about the food or drinks

I have been staying here for years If you decide to stay here you won’t regret itWe are staying 4 nights at this property 3 days before arriving, I called to find out if I could request a microwave in the room The front office manager, Amr Maged, was very helpful to explain that premium rooms come with microwave and there is a shared microwave on every floor for standard rooms He said he’ll see what he can do to get us a room with microwave Upon check-in, we were upgraded to a premium room with microwave The room is very nice, spacious and clean Thanks to Amr, we feel treated like valued guests at this hotel for the first time I say this because we stayed here twice previously, in July and November of last year and my requests for upgrade were denied both times despite me being a Spire elite The excuse on both occasions was no availability even though there were hardly any guests (judging by the number of cars in the parking lot)

Benita Cohen

Earlier reviews had me wondering if we would find anything but the regular consistency we enjoy at Courtyards This Courtyard may have been better than the ones we’d been to before The layout of the room was different and created a more comfortable and relaxing atmosphere

The room was clean and the water pressure in the shower was terrific So many hotel pillows are so airy that they collapse as soon as I put my head on them — these had substance but were not overly firm

Chelsea Davis

Very poor customer service I provided my information with all details via email and phone call and received back the room block contract with multiple spelling and date errors The code didn’t work multiple times and I had to reach out for corrections

I should have known at that point that there would be more issues I secured a block of rooms for my wedding over a year out A couple months or so prior to the wedding I received a call stating that the hotel was closing for renovations and that they were unable to accommodate my group Luckily, I was able to stay at a brand new Hampton Inn just minutes away instead I do not recommend this hotel

Brittany Doria

Well so far – they couldn’t honor early check in what so ever Couldn’t honor AAA card before BEFORE we even checked in Room wasn’t as clean as you’d think a hotel would be (still toothpaste in sink- we haven’t even brought in luggage yet)

don’t know the area or anywhere else to stay – so unfortunately we are stuck Highway is very loud- could be soothing to some people I’d look for better rated hotel honestly next time DisappointedNotice the replies back from management from the 5 star reviews compared to the way they handle poor ratings (oh your stay wasn’t well- sorry- do come back tho! 😂 yikes

Mihir Patel

We are very disappointed in this property, honestly they should loose their Hyatt Regency name We checked in for two nights for a local wedding, the sheets on our king size bed had stains and hairs in it When we asked for our sheets to be changed, the night manager felt like she was accusing us, questioning when we checked in and why we didn’t noticed it earlier

I had to explain to her we just pulled the sheets back prior to going to bed but the fact I had to justify myself was frustrating We didn’t ask for any special accommodations, we just asked for new sheets They then explained how housekeeping is closed and they had to find someone to change the sheets Additionally, all the furniture had stains and dust on it, we had to put towels and clean sheets down to feel comfortable even sitting on it Looks like they owners recently renovated the lobby but decided to keep the rooms looking like they’re from the 1980s The hotel rooms are in rough shape, show their age, and unsanitary I wouldn’t recommend staying here, there are much better options locally for the same priceThe only good thing about the hotel is that the front desk and bar staff were kind But the rooms at this hotel are well below the Hyatt Regency standard

Excellent Super-clean room, not noisy except for a small amount of noise from traffic outside, kind staff at check-in Pool very nice, jacuzzi quite spacious and definitely hot enough to relax but a tad bit hotter would be even better

Hours of pool and jacuzzi were great Nice that they put the on/off button for the jacuzzi jets inside the jacuzzi itself Yes, there is a parking fee but it is fair Great job

Great Service Very spacious and nicely appointed I brought the kids here mainly for the indoor pool so they can go whether rain or shine

There was plenty of parking behind the building near the indoor pool, so there is no need to compete with anyone Has EV charging too for those of you that run on batteriesThe restaurant downstairs has fair prices, which is competitive against the need to drive out and eatWhile we gave it 5 stars anyway, I just wanted to note that the photo of the indoor pool is a bit misleading The pool is a little smaller in real life, but it is still roomy and not too crowded when we went

Rob Jelinski

Beautiful hotel that sits on the Connell business park now renamed The Park Like all Embassy Suites each room offers sofa/ kitchen area and the bedroom area These are spacious and nicely decorated for the price point

Included in the stay are a free breakfast buffet (oatmeal, fresh fruit, bagels, coffee, etc and an omelette station) which are good and quality does vary of some offerings based on the time you eat They also give a complimentary drink for each adult per/ night of your stay This is a nice touch and you can upcharge if you’d like top shelf brandsLots of common areas for working which is the top priority here for most guests There is also a full Starbucks on site and a great reading area in front of the shop See my Grain & Cane review for notes on the on-site restaurant which is 👌🏼 tooThe pool area could use a little love, but all in all the Staff was very courteous, the property was very clean, and all in all I would highly recommend it!

Kylie L

The room was dirty upon check in, there was like white substance all over the bed shams and all over the doors and all over the floor, there was also a sticky substance seeping out of the refrigerator the room smelled like they were covering up maybe pet odor The scent from the vents was very overwhelming like a deodorizer

The lamp was broken and hanging sideways There was no happy medium with the air conditioner, it blew right on us all night and there were no abilities to set the vents in an opposite way away from the beds the breakfast stations were jampacked nowhere to sit young kids touching all the food with their hands, and the lines wrapped around the tables for fresh omelets, which led us to get breakfast at Starbucks Maybe it was a wedding weekend? The hotel should alert guests when something like this is occurring, We weren’t able to use the pool, there were so many kids in it and it was a very small 3ft pool, and we chose this location specifically for the pool Very unhappy We even came late like 8 pm And check-in was at 3, we told them we would be late so they had an ample amount of time to clean the hotel room , the daybed cushions were not even put in correctly the zipper seam was facing out The hotel has such potential

Make sure to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking a resort This website will compare countless booking websites and typically will have rooms much cheaper compared to others! Thank me later on! This place is one of the most well known in this area

I’ve been staying here for years If you stay for a few nights you for sure won’t regret itThis hotel location was excellent!! You had a Walmart extremely close by two restaurants and the room was absolutely clean and modern!! We had so much space despite sharing a room as a family! It met our needs to sleep shower and go on about our next stop the Statue of Liberty!! If you’re traveling with the family I would definitely recommend this place! My husband was the only person who took advantage of the free breakfast because we were running late but it was all worth it!! If you need to get to the Statue Liberty from Philly stay here you will not regret it!!

I have been staying at Hilton since past 7-8 years and this was the worst experience ever Starting from the check-in – We were not greeted with happy faces at all We had total of 6 rooms for the week so total around like 15-16 nights since i had used points for some rooms and paid for the other

We had a baby shower event nearby and booked the rooms for my guests and my family but they were also utterly disappointed by the overall experience The major concern was the provision of the housekeeping service and bath/hand towels We had to literally beg for towels every few hours since they would not give us the number of towels we requested We could see they have enough towels at the back of the reception but still would not give us that It literally felt like they were discriminating towards my brown skin They would not provide housekeeping the same day even if we asked for it in the morning I have been staying at Hiltons since the beginning of Pandemic but never had such experience anywhere else I had options nearby to book my rooms for the baby shower but chose this since I had previously stayed at this property couple of times They had like 4-5 front desk people sitting doing nothing during the work hours They should instead hire more house keepers I really hope Hilton will take some acceptable action towards the customer service at this particular property

The hotel is quite modern and has no smoke smell The hotel is clean and tidy My only issues with the hotel are they did not have a complimentary breakfast nor did the room I stayed in have a refrigerator or microwave

Also, the gym was not available If the hotel is charging normal high rates then they should have other services included instead of cutting other services Another issue I had was with the nighttime front desk attendant – Medium height, African American middle-aged female She was quite rude and did not try to accommodate my needs when it was already pre-booked a few days earlier and she was very rude when I tried to resolve the issue with her Would probably not stay here again if the issues are not fixed

I was on a vacation to Boston, New York and New Jersey recently I lived in Basking Ridge many years back in late 1990’s and having known the area and close to Hindu Temple in Bridgewater, booked a room in Delta Hotels by Marriott, Basking Ridge It was a very pleasant experience for my wife and me

Location is excellent, nice greenery view from window, no noise and very peaceful Front staff were gracious and helpful Room service was great, though it is done on request due to COVID situation Room was very spacious, clean, very clean and upgraded bathroom, great mattress, pillows and sheets and towels, nice climate controlling unit in the room Quality toiletries were provided Had great rest sleeping on the very comfy mattress!! Morning complimentary coffee was good Free water bottles were provided For the price we paid, it is well worth it Wish we had more time to stay few more days at this hotel Overall, we had a great memorable stay!! Probably the best after Wynn Resort in Las Vegas and better than the other Marriott and Sheraton Hotels we stayed during this trip in Boston and New York I was able to see the places I used to go back in the days around Basking Ridge and reminded pleasant memories All the towns, Hindu temple close by make this location very ideal I strongly recommend anyone coming to visit the temple from out of state and planning to stay overnight or few days to definitely stay at the Delta Hotel in Basking Ridge One can appreciate the real beauty of New Jersey towns around this hotel after seeing the horrible places like Newark, Jersey City, Oranges etc!!

We stayed here for two nights The room was a little tight for 2 queen beds however, the comfort of the beds made up for the room size The front desk staff was helpful and friendly

The hotel is huge and used to be gorgeous but now it looks outdatedIf you choose a room with breakfast you will be not wrong 😉Outdoor pool is great

  Continental breakfast has usual Hilton options  (scrambled eggs,  bacon,  breakfast potato) with some restaurant’s touch (you supposed to use vouchers)The territory around the hotel is nice but needs a little bit more attentionOverall it was a good stay  My kids enjoyed weekends there

I wonder if this place was nice before COVID because now the place gives an outdated vibe It has a pool, business center, plenty of conference space and a restaurant on site Yet, nothing made me feel like I was in for a treat including the staff who barely recognized my diamond status

They were less than warm in their welcome Maybe they were tired because it was a holiday weekend and bus load of kids checked in? At least the bed was comfortable and the room was clean

This double tree hotel was a great disappointment I am a Hilton Gold honors member and had never been to a Hilton property that was so outdated and unclean We booked this location for an anniversary staycation for two nights and checked out after night one because of how gross it was

We had to stay night one because no other hotels in the area could take us that late at night We booked a room with patio walk out to the pool The doors were incredibly hard to open, the patio curtains were so filthy and dusty, I needed to go and buy allergy medicine The patio windows were so streaky and dusty, you couldn’t see through them The air in the hotel was musty The bathroom still had hair in it and it was so small you could barely move around One of the front desk staff was so rude, I was appalled Ive never been treated that way in a Hilton property before The hallways looked like they had never been vacuumed and the ice machine was so gross, we went out to buy ice for our water bottlesDark, musty and outdated Highly don’t recommendThe grounds are the only saving grace The outside is pretty but the pool fills up quickly and the lounge chairs are incredibly limited so if you want one for your family, secure it before 9am There are only like 4 of them so it feels like hunger games for them

I stayed here with a soccer team for a weekend soccer tournament and booked multiple rooms The hotel rooms were spacious, clean, and updated, but the best thing I experienced here was the customer service Erica was super helpful with booking and upon check in, made sure our reservations met our needs

After we checked out and were already on a plane back to CA, we realized one of the girls left some very important school work in the room Patsy went above and beyond for our group and immediately went on a search for the missing school workAND SHE FOUND IT! And the amazing customer service didn’t stop there Kat also went above and beyond by taking photos of the school work and emailing it to us in time for her to study and turn in The level of service by these wonderful ladies is something that I will never forget From now on, I will stay at this hotel every time we visit the area because we know the rooms are perfect and the customer service is superior We appreciate the tremendous care and attention by Kat, Patsy, and all of the Hampton Inn & Suites staff in Bridgewater

I am on a clinical trial for cancer at Memorial Sloan Kettering and this hotel is a little out of the way, but the experience my sister who is taking care of me and I had this past weekend was great We like the location, the hotel and staff exceeded our expectations and most of all the comfort of the room Very spacious, clean, comfortable and quiet

Fran Guertin

Very nice hotel but ridiculous pet fee The hotel was very clean and comfortable The rooms were large and the staff pleasant and helpful

My issue was with a non refundable pet fee of $100 While I understand there are irresponsible out owners I feel a far better system is a reasonable pet fee of $25 to $50 and a hold of perhaps $200 on my charge in case of damagei wouldn’t stay against but only because of the pet fee

The place is very clean, modern and well maintained The staff was accommodating and friendly The room was really nice and spacious but cozy

Bathroom amenities were Paul Mitchel and I greatly appreciated those There was a great variety of breakfast foods available in the morning which was wonderful This hotel got all the details right even down to the smallest of details! There is also a delicious smelling restaurant right across the street that sadly I didn’t get to try but the next time I am out here I will absolutely be looking forward to it!

Anessa Kertesz

Clean, welcoming and comfortable! Stayed a few days while in town for a wedding Despite our wild family lol the staff was more than hospitable, they were stellar! The breakfast bar was great! And the staff who were manning the breakfast bar were on top of everything Super friendly and helpful, they kept it stocked and above all, clean!!! Highly recommend!

This was the worst hotel I have stayed at We had booked 50 plus rooms for two nights and the service was the worst we have ever seen and this is coming from someone who works in the hotel industry We had booked a meeting room for all the people who were staying in the hotel and our count for people attending went up to 80 therefore; she told us to use the lobby

The hotel has a bar but on purpose they don’t open it so they can charge people to have a bar open The bartender the hotel gave us had no bartending experience as he didn’t know how to make a martini or a Moscow mule He was supposed to be there from 5:30 to 10:30 and he was missing in action from 7:30 onward When I went to inquire, he was hiding in the back and said if he wanted noise he would work in a club One of the guests (who was not affiliated with us) said I know people and you can get fired and he ran with that saying we threatened himThe GM, the next day said I need to speak to you and we didn’t tip the bartender She claims she had to comp $5,000 worth of room revenue which is a lie because we had occupied 60 rooms Why would you put other guest in the middle of all the rooms At the end of the night when we came back from our event we decided to go to Tap house 2020 and we were told that the hotel called and said we were too rowdy and not to accept our wedding block I came back to the hotel and when we confronted the GM Melinda, she denied it When my nephew went up to speak to the front desk about why they called the tap house 2020, the GM came out and said I am tired of everyone coming and asking me questions and she is calling the cops Are you serious, the hotel does not know how to handle a large crowd The hotel should not host any wedding room block You can’t threaten to call the police when someone is asking question and you don’t feel like answering The GM and the staff ruined our happy day and upset the bride and the groom
