One of the Hotel's staff person named Eddy was wonderful to us while the others who are White people treated us with discrimination on the day of our arrival on 2/09 the woman was unfriendly to us and gave us a bad room with very little assistance on how to get to it and the next day on 2/10/12, when we came to change the room this white guy who spoke french with some guests who had arrived after we were standing there waitingto be attended to and pretended not to see us but saw those guests and ignored us and proceeded to assist them acted like we were invisible, but in the other hand Eddy was so helpful I appreciate all the help he gave us and would return to this hotel just because of him.
