Internet pricings a sham!

We used the internet for 3 hrs and got charged for 240 MB ($43) when all we checked is work emails, the print out suggests heavy download activity which was not true. Next time we will stay in the places with internet included or fixed rate, we also asked for 2 keys and nothing was said but they slapped on a $50 fee for the extra key! We travel alot for business and have tried diff places and sorry to say this was a dissapointing experience!

Comfort and location were just

Comfort and location were just great! Staff were very friendly and obliging. However there was no mention of the cost of parking in the booking process, and I think this should be clearly stated up front as it changes the price comparisons when deciding between hotels. This problem is not unique the Grand Chancellor.

It was a good, stay, very clean,

It was a good, stay, very clean, nice sized apartment, decor was a bit dated but facilities in the room covered everything you could need. Unfortunately when checking out when I produced the confirmation voucher and deposit receipt delivered by email to me by the rates to go website, the guy behind the counter said, "Im sorry we have no recollection of you paying a deposit- you'll have to pay the full amount now and take it up with rates to go. Eventually after a LOT of waiting and supervisors arriving they accepted my pre deposit so I had only the remained to pay. ANd after all of that no apology or anyhthing so it left a bitter taste in my mouth. Apart from that everything was good.
