I am a software engineer and a consultant who traveling every week and have a platinum status with Marriott. I stayed this hotel from 2013 Feb 24 to Feb 28 at residence inn at Waldorf, MD. After 4 days of stay I checked out on last Thursday (02/28/2013) and received an email from the hotel manager on the same day that we charged you $250.00 for you smoking in the room.
I know that Marriott is a smoke free hotel and I don't smoke at all. They have sent 5 pictures of cigar ashes in the room where I stayed. I call the hotel manager and tried to explain my innocence but he didn't take it. I have called the Marriott customer relation department and explained the concern but no replay from them.
I took a drug test (for all drugs plus nicotine) on the next day to prove my innocence since they provided the false evidence of pictures. If someone smokes, we can find it from a drug test (from urine or blood) within 2 to 14 days. Today I have received the result of my nicotine use drug test and it is negative.
When I checked in the hotel, there was a little smell but i didn't able to recognize since I was under medication for the sinus infection (I do have proof for the medication). The hotel may recognize the same smell after I checked out but they need evidence for charging me $250, so that’s why they may put the ashes in the room and took the pictures for the evidence for charging me $250. My concern is I am not a smoker, I didn’t violate their policy and I got charged for the mistake that I never I did it. They were created these false evidences and charged these fees are not acceptable.
So please verify everything with the front desk before you check out otherwise you will see some surprise from this hotel soon.
