Unfortunately, the worst customer services ever i sow in my life. Lorna, the front desk lady is unprofessional and disrespectful and very rude. My wife called asked that we need a baby crib for my 3 month old baby and she told her that we don't have for this night. I went to the lobby to check with her (Lorna) is that right that hotel like Marriott they don't have a baby crib and once i asked her that my wife called you about the crib, she told me i already told your wife that we don't have at all the baby crib in the Marriott hotel !!! and you don't need to ask me another time.She disrespect me and keep told me (good night, good night, good night) She makes me feel I'm unwelcome in the hotel. To be honest the room is clean and the location is good but the customer service is very bad 👎.
