I am not one to write reviews, prefer to do it in person, however I feel I need to put this in print to thank the individual publicly. Recently we visited Savannah, GA and stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in the Historic District. We were very pleased with our stay there. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We had some issues with wireless computer access but received service within minutes of our call to the front desk. However, one individual stands out and I feel his service was above and beyond, and wanted to recognize Mr. Alfonce McKinney for his outstanding service. Having been to dinner at one of the fabulous restaurants by the river, I had hoped to have some southern style pecan pie but to my disappointment they did not serve it. When we got back to the hotel, Alfonce was at the desk, he asked us how our evening was going. I told him about my craving for the pie, right away he went on line to find a place that might have it. He gave us the names of the three places and we headed out to find them, but alas, none was to be found. I was surprised by that, thought Savannah, GA would be the perfect place to experience the famous southern style pecan pie. We headed back to our hotel disappointed. Once again, Alfonce greeted us, wondering how we made out. He was surprised at the outcome and again got back on line to search further. He had customers coming and going so we thanked him and told him not to worry as we were going to retire for the evening. About 20 minutes later our door bell rang, and there to our surprise was Alfonce holding a white styrofoam container with a piece of pecan pie. Apparently he found a place nearby and also insisted we not reimburse him for it. What a wonderfully kind gesture. From now on whenever I have some or see pecan pie, Alfonce, I will think of you. Thank you for making the extra effort, it was truly appreciated. With a heart as big as yours you will go a long way in the hospitality industry. With heartfelt thanks, Bridget Bean, Cape Coral, FL
