Courtyard by Marriott Complaint - I got charged a pet fee even though I had no pet with me
ATLANTA, GEORGIA -- On October 23, 2010 I traveled to Atlanta to take my daughter's cocker spaniel. When I arrived Atlanta I decided that I would need a hotel for a night. So before going to my daugter's place, I checked in at Courtyard by Marriot, Pitchtree Dunwoody. When the manager saw that I had a dog, he immediately reminded me that the facility was a dog-free hotel. I assured him that the dog was on its way to my daughter and would not be staying with me. I proceeded to check in and left the hotel with my puppy to deliver it to my daughter. I came back to my hotel room in the early morning hours of the next day. When I woke up I looked at my bill that had been slipped under the door only to see that I was billed $100.00 pet fee. I immediately went to front desk to make them aware that this was a mistake. The staff were beligerent and made and made comments about someone hearing dog noise over night. I invited them to inspect my car and my room for a dog and they refused. I finally drove my car to the front desk loading area and and checked out so they could see that I had no dog. The attendant agrees that it was a mistake and that she could not correct the charge and only the manager could. But the manager was not on dutym that day. I was asked to leave my phone so the manager would contact me to correct the bill but did not receive any calls. When I called back the next day, they told me the manager was not available that day. I am still waiting to hear from the manager. The staff including the manager do not seem to be customer-oriented.
