Good Afternoon Courtney, thank you for sharing your experience from your recent stay with us! We are so sorry you felt the service you received upon your arrival was lackluster. We love being able to offer an intern program for students beginning a career in the hospitality industry. We appreciate the feedback to help them improve on skills they are in the process of learning and to help them find a role that suits their skill set best in a hotel. We also want to apologize for your check out process feeling rushed. This is not the standard we hold ourselves to and we want our guests to always feel welcome. I will pass along your experience to our Executive Team as well as our Director of Housekeeping for further review. Thank you.
