am very torn here, I really enjoyed my time at the renaissance, the staff was nice, the room was comfortable but there was one thing that really ruined the entire experience for me and sadly is enough for me to give only 1 star to the hotel.
I was in the Lobby bar/coffee stand place and the guy mixing my drinks was obviously very sick (red nose, puffy eyes, sounded like something was stuck in his throat). I was concerned so I asked why he hadn't called in sick. I was told,
"I woke up late today and couldn't call in." I asked why, he said "If we don't call in 2 hours before our scheduled shift we get written up. One of my coworkers was just fired for it"
WHAT?!?!?! Are you kidding me? Isn't there some way to make an exception for this poor guy? It started making me think, if they force someone who works in the food/beverage part of the hotel to work when this sick, do I have horrible germs from a just as sick maid all over my sheets because she had the audacity to get as much sleep as possible before coming into work at the ungodly early hour they make housekeepers come in? Did the front desk clerk who so friendly shook my hand have H1N1 Virus all over his palm?
Honesty, the IDEA that someone at this Hotel HAS to come into work when sick just because they are so rude as to wake up with just enough time to get ready and go to work is so disgusting it has made me decide to NEVER go back. If you care about your health you will spend your money at a place that cares about the well being of their guests.
SHAME ON THE MANAGEMENT OF THIS HOTEL!!!!!!
