Dr. Switcheroo or How I Learned to Always Get it in Writing

The title of this review is "Dr. Switcheroo or How I Learned to Always Get it in Writing". On my first night there, a roach flew out of the lamp on my bedside table. I killed it and left it on the floor--in part as a warning to its friends, and in part because I had a feeling I was going to need to have proof for any complaints. I called the front desk to let them know; nothing happened. The next morning, at the two-stars-out-of-five breakfast, there was another roach on the wall behind the omelet station. I pointed it out to the (very nice) woman cooking my omelet and told her it looked a lot like the one that was in my room last night. She let the restaurant manager know and he actually came out to talk to me. Mgr: I'm very sorry about that. You won't need to pay for your meal. Me: Thanks Mgr: And I understand there was also one in your room? Me: Yes Mgr: Have you Paid for your room? Me: No Mgr: Good. Don't. And we'll get the exterminator in here and up in your room today. Now, if we're honest, I thought this might have been a bit Too generous; my stay was for five nights. I had been considering checking out that day, but I was attending and speaking at a conference across the street, and who is going to turn down a free hotel? So I thanked him and went to my room. The front desk called and we scheduled when the exterminator could come to my room (I'd have to be gone). Then I went over to the conference. I was so pleased with the hotel's response that I called my wife to tell her about it. Not only had they comped my stay, but they sent an exterminator as soon as they knew about it. (Then I remembered that the front desk had been aware of the roach in my room for half a day, so at least the management is responsive, right?) It almost wasn't worth it. Every night when I got up to go to the bathroom, I worried that my next step would crunch. But I got through, and finally it came time to check out. I was billed for all five nights. It was 6:30am so there were no managers on duty. I called the hotel when I got back to my apartment, and I got a completely different story. The hotel manager said the restaurant manager told her there was no mention of my room, and he was offering to pay for my food bill instead. I said he offered both. She said no way. After some discussion, she offered a refund for one night, and stated that her offer was exceedingly generous. I disagreed. I said that all five nights was very generous, and that at a bare minimum I didn't want to pay for either of the days I encountered a roach either next to my bed or next to my food. I made it clear that I wasn't concerned that there were two roaches in her hotel, but rather that there were SO MANY ROACHES THAT I COULDN'T GO A DAY WITHOUT BEING WITHIN SIX FEET OF ONE--and I was only in two places in the hotel! She responded about like you'd expect, and I took the one night refund. But after you expect five, and have a reasonable request for two, one doesn't feel like much. And I have to say, worrying constantly that I'd have a six-legged bedmate (or dinner date) while I was there made it completely not worth my time; if I had known it would be anything but free, I would have checked out and stayed truly anywhere else. In conclusion: If you have to pay any more than zero dollars a night for this hotel, it isn't worth it. And if you do find yourself going through something that makes your stay zero dollars a night, GET IT IN WRITING.

Very Nice Hotel for Slight Premium Price

Hotel was well located for our Christmas Family Visit. Extremely quiet during the Holidays, but staff was still attentive and Breakfast Brunch was still available for $8.50 per person. We felt that ordering off of the menu was an equally good option. Quiet, secure residential neighborhood but only about 8 miles from Memphis Airport. Would definitely stay again for slightly more money than we would ordinarily pay for a Hampton Inn or Marriott Courtyard.

Nice hotel, lacking staff

The hotel was quite nice, but the some of the staff were unprofessional. For example, our friend's credit card become stuck in the imprint machine for over half an hour. When the front desk person returned his card there was no apology or anything. Many of the cleaning staff were rude.

Fabulous Rooms

This Hotel is a very nice hotel with wonderful rooms the only downfall is that it doesnt have a pool. I would definately stay there again. I would also recommend this hotel as very high quality for you money. All rooms are suites and you have internet in your room as well as free computer access in the lobby anytime. Staff are extremely friendly and the food in the resturant is great.

GREAT LOCATION FOR THE TOURIST

THIS WAS MY THIRD VISIT TO MEMPHIS AS A VACATION DESTINATION AND THIS HOTEL FAR SURPASS THE PREVIOUS PLACES WE STAYED. THERE IS NOT A POOL WHICH IS UNUSUAL FOR A HOTEL THIS LARGE. THE STAFF WAS EXTREMELY PROFESSIONAL AND COURTEOUS. THE BREAKFAST AND LUNCH BUFFETS OFFER GREAT VALUE FOR THE MONEY. THE HOTEL IS ON THE CAMPUS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF MEMPHIS AND IS SURROUNDED BY A MOST LOVELY NEIGHBORHOOD OF ONE OF THE KIND HOMES. NO COOKIE CUTTER DEVELOPMENTS HERE. THE PINK PLACE MUSEUM IS NEARBY AND THE BEALE STREET AREA AS WELL AS THE NATIONAL CIVIL RIGHTS MUSEUM ARE NEARBY. I WILL NOT HESISTATE TO RETURN HERE FOR FUTURE VISITS.
