resolved to the customer's satisfaction
Total disaster! I had planned on taking my daughter to her first concert in Cleveland, OH. I went on line and booked a room through the Embassy Suites website and felt I was getting a good deal. Sadly, the concert was canceled. I thought about taking her to a different location and staying again with Embassy Suites and adding a night as I would be traveling further. I started by calling their customer service, but was told I could do nothing about changing the reservation because I had used the special on line rate where I couldn't make a cancelation or modification to the reservation. I was told that since I used the special internet rate, it had already been billed, the money had gone directly to the hotel in Cleveland, and there was no way to reverse the charges. I asked to speak to a supervisor and was put through to a voicemail. I left a message and the call was not returned. Later in the day, I called again and asked to speak to the supervisor. Again, was put through to voice mail and the call the was not returned. I called Embassy Suites coporate office, which is part of the Hilton hotel chain. Got voicemail and left a message. I did receive a call back, but was told again that there was nothing I could do to change the reservation. I asked if there was someone else I could speak to, seeing as though I merely wanted to change the reservation to a different city and spend an additional night. Embassy Suites would still receive my money and then some since I was adding a night. I was told that they would forward my concerns to someone else and they would return my call. I never got a return call and now I'm paying for a room I won't use. Sadly, this also means I can't afford to go to the different city. This whole ordeal has left me very disappointed with Embassy Suites and the Hilton brand hotels. I will never use a Hilton brand hotel and I will certainly exercise caution when booking a room on line. My advice to anyone using Embassy Suites or a Hilton brand hotel is to read the fine print clearly and realize that a good deal might lock you into something you might not acutally use. They are very unwilling to allow changes and you certainly won't get your money back.
