My wife and I stayed at Hotel Healdsburg on Saturday March 16th. First, I'll start with the positive: the hotel is great, the bed is incredibly comfortable, and the location really could not be better. Also, for the most part the staff is friendly and attentive ... with one glaring exception.
At 7 AM on Sunday, we were woken up by the sounds of a St. Patty's Day Parade running through the town square and right below our window. We love St. Patty's Day as much as anyone ... but it was a bit of a surprise. Upon checkout, all we did was mention that it would have been nice to know the parade was happening. The staff member - who turned out to be the manager (Travis) - was quite possibly one of the rudest people I have ever met in my life. He stared at us, grumbled something about how we knew it was St.Patty's Day, shook his head, and walked off.
We weren't looking for a handout - just an acknowledgement that it was an inconvenience. We talked to another staff member and unfortunately it didn't sound like instances llike this are uncommon. So we felt like someone else at the hotel should know.
