I take my family to KOP every year the weekend before school starts, we usually stay at the nearby Marriott property.
This year, saw this,"illusion" of a better hotel online...... We checked in the lobby was beautiful, since we booked online I asked for a room away from the elevators, the front desk assured me it was, after the long hike to the average room, we were only two doors from the elevator at the other end of the hall.
The sink in the restroom was blocked, the next morning we informed the front desk in person prior to leaving for the entire day at the zoo in Philly.
We rturned 12 hours later, the drain was purged, the mess on the counter (hair and all) the room UNTOUCHED by house keeping.
The front desk did not care, a nice gentleman named Joe helped by moving us, but that was AFTER I called customer service from the dirty room who called the hotel.
We had to pack up and move our toddlers one fast asleep at 11pm because no one thought we wanted the room cleaned and the hair clog ghosts of past guests not on the counter that holds our children's toothbrushes. YUICK !!!!
Don't be fooled by online photos ! The beautiful pool online is not even onsite it is out of the hotel down the parking lot through a different hotel, out of that one and into a health club ! Who wants to take a 1/4 mile hike to swim at a health club full of hard bodies with their toddlers ?
