Spa Hotel

Saint Louis, Missouri

Located about 10 minutes outside of the city. The room had a lovely view and an outside sitting area. We felt the room was lacking certain important things such as a luggage rack and a desk. My husband had work to do while on vacation and had to work on the sofa. Buffet breakfast was excellent with many hot and cold selections. The coffee bar was great,

Shocking experience

Marrakech, Morocco

When we checked in, the receptionist didn’t take the deposit, so whenever we ate or ordered we were asked about the payment. Staff were following us to the room to get the payment and refused to settle it while check out. This was an inconvenience mainly because myself and my husband were eating at the buffet while my mom was in the room with my baby ordering room service. I had to leave in the middle of my dinner at the restaurant to talk. They then decided to come back later but the machine didnt work and it was extremely awkward and inconvenient affair. The spray in the bathroom was broken. At the buffet, we saw the spread and then decided to come back 20 mins later. When we came back, some of the food was already finished and missing from the buffet spread. It was not refilled. There are no amenities in the room. No tea/coffee or even bottled water in the room. The cherry on the cake, we asked for a kettle to warm the water for our 5months baby, we got it late in the night, rinsed it with water and used it at midnight. In the morning we found out that it was dirty and the dirt came out after warming water and it was floating. We fed our baby the dirt all night. It’s disappointing to have such bad experience in a big chain hotel. The cleanliness and hygiene was shocking and highly questionable.
