          Me and my wife stayed for our honeymoon and the service was excellent. The staff was friendly and helpful. Thank you for a unforgettable experience. On our last night they really went out of there way treating us with roses,champagne, chocolate and candle light.

          What I would like to know is why if you are reviewing an establishment, you find it necessary to review the concierge and what are you hoping for ? That he will lose his job because of you - why didn't you just mention all your horrors to the manager/owner and refrain from sing a public forum to just kill the poor guys confidence and possibly his job. What a horrible thing to do.
