Intercontinental Hotels Group Complaint - No Service at the Intercontinental Hotels
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA -- In my 35 years of business travel, I have never ever encountered such rude and unreasonable service as I received from the Intercontinental Hotels Group. Last December I made a reservation at the North Holywood Holiday Inn for several days. A week before the trip I caught a bad case of flu and so I called the hotel to cancel. I was told that my reservation was non-cancelable...After recovering from the inital shock I tried to explain that the bad flu is a force majeur and that I would have never have made a non-cancelable reservation in the first place ! especially not in the Los Angeles area which has practically unlimited hotel rooms!!!
My reasoning impressed no one. I then continued with my complaint all the way to the Intercontinental CEO but kept getting a computer generated, plastic response...They did not even care that I told them my company is a yearly customer for hundreds of rooms. They did not even care when I told them I gave an order to my employees to avoid the Intercontinental hotel group. Whatever I said, was replied with the same "copy-paste" text!! Just unbelievable how stupid their Service people are and how bad their service is. Since that inceident, I have made it a point to spread the word to as many people I know so that they will avoid staying in a hotel that, at the end of the day, cares nothing about them, but only about making few lousy dollars.
