Avoid, avoid, avoid!! Room with no water.

Chicago, Illinois

Terrible hotel!! They checked us in a room knowing that has not water for several hours a day, every day. Nobody informed us about that. When we arrived from the park to find out there was no water I called the concierge. He fooled me saying he will sent the engenier to check what was the problem with the water. I waited for an hour, called again and I asked for water or to be moved to a different room. He passed me with the front desk, but they put me in hold forever. Unable to reach the from desk, I went down stairs (long walk from my room to the lobby). I spoke with a young lady (I have her name, but I'm not posting it) who said we will be moved right away. However, she forgot about us too. She kept us waiting for the new room keys that NEVER came. After a lot of waiting with NO water in our room, me and my kids went with all the lugagge to the lobby.There was moooore waiting, Finally the new keys arrived and when we where in the elevator my daughter realized there was a mistake. My key (keys are also fast track passes ) was under another person name From my first call until we get our new room, more than 3 hours passed. For the price of the room (4 nights), the price of the tickets (4 days-2 parks) and the extra for the lounge acces I really feel we have been scam. I don't enjoy writing negative reviews. But I would like to prevent people to make the same mistake that we did. Don't spent your money here.

Perfect Location

New Braunfels, Texas

Best perk is the fast pass! Also the hotel is secluded from the parks so it's very nice and relaxing after your busy day. Water taxi was convenient and fast. Several dining options to choose from and the music is wonderful.
