“Bad Hospitality & Risk of Theft”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

If ever you are staying in this hotel, please do not stay beyond 3-4 days. I had stayed in this hotel for 3 months considering its an extended stay hotel. As per policy they replenish the household utilities on a weekly basis during housekeeping. During the course of stay in the hotel, i used to take the complimentary breakfast granola bars (1 each day) and put it in my hotel draws if I am not in a mood to eat it. I had collected some 5-6 bars and a few muffins in the kitchen draws. Likewise, i used to collect the shampoos which i dont use in a week in the draws. I also used to my other personal belongings in the draws and closet as the studio room is really small and the drawers are the only place where we can keep stuff. Shockingly, when i came back to the room after office, i saw a notice stating "You are collecting houshold items and breakfast items in the draws." with photos of the drawers with the stuff. They have removed all the items i had collected and warned me that i may be levied a fine of 100$ if i repeat this in future!! I have travelled all over, and never have I experienced such a thing. Complimentary items which are kept in your room are for you to use the way you want. Further more, I have never collected these things voluntarily by asking them for additional stuff. I have just kept whatever was kept in my room, for further use. Also, opening up drawers where personal stuff are kept and rampantly scavaging the personal stuff is really unpardonable. Felt very violated with the behaviour and the tenor of the notice. It is a frequent custom with the hotel to keep such notices in the room everytime their housekeeping comes to clean the room. The housekeeping staff do not replenish items, do not keep the reqd no of towels and even for small spillage, they keep a notice saying, you may be fined 250$ if u repeat this. Guests are to be treated with respect and not scared with fines and notices, for any small reason. They should have guidelines in place that are properly stated to the guests at sign-up rather than having hidden rules like, you cant collect the complimentary shampoos that we are kept in your room. You will have to use it only inside the hotel etc. Overall a horrible experience.

Thank you so much for your feedback and please accept my sincere apologies that your experience was less than top notch. The hotel does have a set housekeeping service in place where the household items are replenished. The service states that if the household products are unused that week, than they are not replenished. The hotel would never accuse a guest of stealing, or wants them to feel this way. The notice was a friendly reminder that household will only be replenished on your scheduled cleaning day as needed.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

This hotel was filled with a plethora of aromas. We never knew what we were going to smell whenever we stepped into the hall, elevator or lobby. Our room even had a strange aroma (almost like someone had stayed there with a pet). The overall temperature of the hotel was HOT. The staff was very friendly but I made our reservation so our rooms would be next to each other and they were either on the opposition end of the same floor or on different floors altogether. Not much of a choice. When I worked at a hotel, a new reservation had priority over a guest that was already at the hotel and just wanted to extend their stay. We made every accommodation for extending guests, but if need be, they would have to change rooms, not inconvenience a new guest just arriving.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for staying at the Hawthorn Suites Wheeling! I am very sorry to hear of all of the bad odors you smelled throughout your stay. Sometimes other guests do cook, which can release cooking smells into the hallway, and I can ensure you we really do try our best to rid the hallways of smells. In regards to your room arrangement, we try our best to accommodate special requests, but cannot ask a current guest already occupying the room to switch rooms and move. We appreciate your feedback and hope you will give us another opportunity to serve you in the future.
