Our STATEWIDE group has been booking meetings - as well as our annual convention - at this hotel for the last three years. THREE YEARS AGO we booked the weekend of Sept 12-13, including the entire Ballroom, for a huge reception at which we expected to have 500 people. Unbeknownst to us, the Nebraska football team would be in town to play against the Fresno Bulldogs. The hotel was overrun with Nebraska fans and they TOOK AWAY ROOMS FROM OUR GROUP TO GIVE TO THEM. While this was rectified 12+ hours later, it caused no small amount of stress for the leaders of our organization, for whom this was *supposed* to have been a happy occasion. Oh, did I forget to mention the fact that they also TOOK AWAY THE BALLROOM until 6pm for a Nebraska reception?? They rationalized it by saying that the other group would be gone before our 7pm start time -- um...when, exactly did they expect us to set up and decorate our tables?? This is just ONE MORE indignity heaped upon us by this hotel. We're going to be moving our meetings and convention to Visalia; at least they appreciate us and all of the $$$$ we spend in their city.
