I booked a room several days in advance for a wedding I was attending and I was told there would not be a cancellation fee - no need to do anything. I had a severe allergic reaction and was not able to attend. I didn't think anything of it until I received by credit card bill with a charge of $132.00!! When I called, the front desk lady/manager Diane was extremely rude and told me there was no way her employee would have told me that there was no cancellation fee. When I told her maybe the employee made a mistake, she said there was ""no way he would make that mistake"" and called me a liar. When I stated that sometimes employees make mistakes and I was positive I had asked about cancel fees, she said that was ""impossible"" and that I was wrong and every single hotel in the entire world(!!) charges cancellation fees. After a heated argument, I asked for the corporate number to make a complaint.I explained to the corporate office that I had been sick and was unable to attend and had been given no indication that there would be a cancellation charge (full cost for the over priced room). She was very nice and sympathetic and I confirmed that I could get a doctors note proving I was ill. She said that the Hotel owner or GM would call me to discuss and I would possibly have to provide the doctors note. That was over a week ago and I haven't heard from anyone. I will never stay at any H.I. Express ever.Be sure to stay away from ""Diane"" at this location--Rudest woman on the face of the earth.
