“Treated with contempt by breakfast attendant”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

We travel with a daughter who has a life-threatening peanut allergy. Usually waffles are the only item she can eat in the breakfast area, but we always check the ingredient list to make sure there's no chance of peanut exposure. At this hotel, my wife asked the breakfast attendant if she could see one of the waffle-mix bags to check the ingredients and was told "No." The attendant then proceeded to tell her that she was too busy to help. When my wife told her that she would be writing a letter to hotel management, the breakfast attendant smugly and arrogantly said "Okay!" We have never been treated with such disdain by a hotel employee. To add insult to injury, eleven minutes after the close of the breakfast time, the same attendant told us to hurry up and eat because she had to clean up. Her attitude was unbelievable and she seems to believe she's above reprimand. We wrote a letter to hotel management and received a canned response. They truly don't seem to care. The hotel was nice otherwise, and the front desk staff was helpful and courteous. Too bad one employee can have such a negative impact on a family vacation! She ruined our stay by treating us and our daughter's condition with such contempt.

Stayed October 2013, traveled with family
