Aside from the title the hotel personnel WERE wonderful and courteous. Given my grievance i feel the hotel does NOT have protocols to deal with bigoted and insensitive patrons in public areas... I sat in the hotel bar, after a 10 hour drive from South Carolina and a interview in the area.. The last thing i wanted to listen to was a large group of anglo-saxon men and one women, making negative remarks about other races- my race PUERTORRICAN MIX AND including the bartender who happen to be from Morrocco.
I will not stay in this hotel again, people should be able in this date and time to be sensitive and watch what is said in public.. HMMM wonder how would they feel if I came with a large group of Latinos and in a insensitive way talk about them.????. But at the same token people regardless of their should be more civilized.... and keep the negative remarks within the confines of their own group. i have been in all parts of the globe, but nothing like these Neanderthals, in the hotel bar. Rather than relaxing i was perturbed 11/13/2013
