Our stay was just fantastic -- we arrived during the final 10 minutes of a citywide power outage that had been going on for the previous two hours. The front desk staff was handling the chaos extremely well, and they were explaining to us that we did not have to stay if we did

First we want to thank you for staying with us, we do see that you stayed with us before and we greatly appreciate that. We are sorry to hear that one of the neighborhood cats had snuck into your room. Our housekeeping staff do their best to inspect and then re-inspect the rooms to ensure there cleanliness and that they are ready to rent, so he must've evaded them when they were doing their inspection. We also want to apologize about the seating for breakfast, as we have it with the lobby and overflow breakfast area it does get pretty packed in there, and people just love to eat it so much they don't leave. Our breakfast attendants do their absolute best to keep things stocked so that everyone gets a fresh hot breakfast, but sometimes it just gets away from them and does take a little while longer. All in all we want to thank you for staying with us, we greatly appreciate that and we thank you for taking the time to let us know all about your stay so we know what to work on to make your next stay super!

How much is the pet fee? I have a 15 pound chihuahua!
Hi, GeorgeKaplanRC. Answer this traveler's question here. I recommend you call them directly and ask. Each place is different with different fees and rules. I would imagine it is at least $15.00 and I have seen places as high as $30.00. Just call and ask. Best wishes.
