Departure09085840891, Dear Guest, I am very disturbed with what you have stated. I would like to look at the details of your stay, who checked you in, etc. I cannot, however, do that with no information that could lead me to trace you back. May I request you to please contact me at nurjehan.saju@hdghotels.com with more info about your stay: the registered name, date of stay and room number if possible. We do not and I repeat we do not take a penny more than what is rightfully ours from anyone. I will refund you every bit of what you state that was charged to you not rightfully. I eagerly look forward to hear from you.

We were in a room with two beds and it felt like someone had just smoked in there. We had reserved a non smoking room but seems like they didn’t care and gave us a smoking room. We couldn’t sleep all night.

YM999, As I cannot trace you back in my system and have no clue to lead me to see when and in which area did you stay with us, please contact me at nurjehan.saju@hdghotels.com. this is very very perplexing for me. We would never give a guest a smoking room if they have requested a non-smoking room. It is our policy to contact the guest soon after the check in to make sure that the guest is happily settle down in the room. For any reason, we are not able to please the guest, we willingly fully refund the guest's money so that they can go elsewhere. This becomes challenging when a guest opts to stay and then after that bring up the matter. Therefore, I want to know when and in which area did you stay if you did stay with us. Please contact me.
