It's our anniversary and we had planned to spend it at Camp Richardson, where we had spent numerous vacations over the years. I had called ahead, asked for a quiet room, said it was a Special occasion. We arrived to a large family reunion that had rooms all around us. They had most of the lounge area that evening, but we really understood, and just wished the hotel employee had told us and we would have booked elsewhere. Then, the next day a bicycle club arrived and instead of having the affair (barbecue and band!!) in the courtyard below our room (which would also have been bad) the staff of Hotel Richardson moved the hundred plus group & band into the lounge. Since there was standing room only, we now had no use of the lounge, a loud band, and people running up & down steps every few seconds. We are presently talking to the night manager but thus far he won't relocate us to a cabin. I don't think well be back. Sad.
