    Just one thing missing for me - microwave. Not absolutely necessary though. Everything else perfect so 5 stars, Easy check in, check out. Comfortable bed and bathroom, classy furniture.

      Everything was wonderful. We have stayed there before and have always received excellent service. And, their little restaurant was very good about fixing something yummy that I was not allergic to. I have multiple food allergies and restrictions and they were very happy to accommodate me.

                                          Need more leg room where we sat

                                          Why are plugs so inconveniently located?

                                          Feb 3, 2020

                                          The flight attendant on the EVV-ORD leg was one of the best flight attendants I've ever had and I have flown a lot. He was attentive, helpful and fun.

                                          Pleased that pilot made up time for delayed flight because of Chicago being crowded and not able to begin our flight on time from Asheville. Very pleased I received my luggage on time. Was not pleased that I had to walk so far in a short amount of time for my next flight. This would not be the fault of United. I just don't need to book with Orbitz, because they have done this repeatedly, so when a plane is late then I don't get my luggage. My other flights have been with American. I will choose United now over American.

                                          Great trip. A lot of dogs though. I didn’t see or hear any and I love dogs. I think the pilot said there were 9. Very friendly staff from beginning to end, in terminal and of flight. 5 stars you guys. Thank you.

                                          It was nice to be able to choose my seats when I booked without having to pay extra for that like most other airlines.

                                          Jackie Smart, the agent at Dayton gate is excellent to help passenger make connecting flight with AA plane delay in departure, by moving passenger (making connection) up in seating arrangement to hopefully get off faster to run to their connecting flight. She thinks ahead and got all passengers' luggage tagged, so that she can expedite the boarding process so that those passenger with tight connections may have a better chance to make onto their next flight. Total thinker. Definitely think about promoting her. Speaking as a business owner, it is very difficult to find good "thinking" employees these days. Jackie Smart is SMART!

                                          It was very cold and the stewardess adjusted the temp and got me a blanket.

                                          You cancelled a 6 am flight at 9 pm the night before. If I had not looked at my phone I wouldn't have known. Had to book another airline to get out to my daughter who was having surgery. Was horribly late and I don't think I will ever trust American Airlines again.

                                          Would not let me upgrade seat because they stated it would take too long. Also no tv and internet wasn’t working for a 4 1/2 hr flight

                                          I was originally supposed to be on the 2:30 flight opposed to the 5pm to SFO from ORD and the front desk reps from AA were so mean. The door wasn’t even closed and they told me I was 35 seconds too late and they would have to put me on standby for the next flight. It was the worst experience of my life and I’ll never fly AA again. My bag was on my original flight so I had to get that situated as well.
