No refund on our stay regardless of the pandemic
My poor review is due to the fact that I called the hotel over a month ago to cancel our stay due to the pandemic and was told the best the hotel could do was to offer us a free stay when we return. This is not the attitude I experienced with the other 5 hotels we had booked for this month long trip. All the other hotels refunded our stay and welcomed us back next time we travel. I expected the same treatment from such a quality hotel chain given the circumstances. We have stayed with you in the past but have a different opinion due to this situation.

Sink drain did not work so once water was in the basin you couldn't get it out. Shower also spilled onto the floor which was very slippery. Room was very comfortable and nicely furnished.
