My sister just stayed at best western premier in Montenegro. There was no hot water in the whole hotel! They didn't charge anyone for the stay. Can she still get any compensation from costumer service if she didn't pay anything?

Bumping this thread.
Who can I complain to about a bad stay at the Grand Beach Miami, besides for hotel managers? Are there any corporate offices?

Chain: Hilton

Issue: Points didn't return for 24 hours after cancelling a ressy (wanted to change dates and couldnt online)
Compensation: 6k points

And before people yell at me for compensation over nothing, I was proactively offered

Chain: Marriott
Status: Gold (Platinum today lol)
Issue: A/C was barely working. Was 92° outside and in the 80s in the room. "Engineer" had left for the night, so they brought up a fan. Wasn't a real solution, though.

Had two rooms, Marriott refunded half the points. 30,000 points in total. Spoke to a very nice representative on the phone.

Nice, with Marriott , at least to me, I was never successful even with serious issues, I found that IHG is the best when it comes for compensation to serious issues. Hilton, YMMV. Do not know about Hyatt, don't stay often there.

First time I ever called Marriott. The rep was super nice. Might have helped that she took a liking to my kids antics in the background.

Chain: Marriott (former category 8 - 40K per night)
Year of incident: 2018
Status at time of incident: Gold
Incident: A/C not working in room beginning of 4 night stay, hotel 100% booked for the night and no other room is available.
Compensation: Transferred to nearby category 8 hotel (room not as nice but decent enough), night and resort fee comped (walk rate). Marriott changed points reservation over to new hotel and didn't charge resort fee. Still debating if I should call and ask for additional compensation for the overall inconvenience...

Does anyone know if Marriott's "Ultimate Reservation Guarantee" is legit? I was walked from an Autograph Collection hotel... Will I actually get $200 and 90K points as compensation for the inconvenience?

Any idea what (if any) should be requested for a closed pool at The Venetian (Las Vegas)?  It wasn't mentioned during booking or anywhere that I could find.  The hotel was booked via travel agent as a third-party booking.

Hotel: Genesis All-Suite Hotel
Year of incident: 2018
Status at time of incident: N/A
Incident: Booked 2 bedroom suite for 3 nights, they only had a 1 bedroom available.
Compensation: 2 Nights UR points (booked with UR)


I recently stayed 3 nights at a hotel using UR to book. I booked a 2 bedroom suite. They checked me in to a 1 bedroom suite, due to no 2 bedroom availability . I asked to speak to the GM , after some negotiation they agreed I would stay in the 1 bedroom suite and they would refund me for 2 nights. I highly doubted it would happen, so I did my utmost to actually get a refund. I requested the GM type me up a detailed letter of what happened, who the 3rd booking party was, and they'll refund 2 nights. They retyped the letter 3 times so that it should look presentable and included all details. I called chase they transferred me to a rep. whom told me to send them the letter, once that was done they followed up with me confirming the 3rd party booking platform was refunded for 2 nights and they'll credited my miles back.

 
“Hi Mr. xxx,
 
 
I am glad to inform you that xxxxxxx  HOTEL, refunded 2 nights of your reservation.
 
Since you uses your Chase points to purchase the reservation, I requested to refund xx,304 Pts back to your Chase account.
 
Please allow 3-5 business days to reflect the points back to your account.
 
For you to track your Chase points her is the updated balance before the refund.
 
 
Total: xxx Pending:xxx Available:xxx”

Hotel: African Pride 15 on Orange Hotel, Autograph Collection
Year of incident: 2018
Status at time of incident: PPE
Incident: I had a week stay with a Marriott 7 night cert. Hotel had scheduled construction for public areas.  They sent out an email stating construction will not start before 1030am. On 5/7 days there was noise from 7am+. The hotel repeatedly said "TOMORROW NO NOISE". They admitted fault saying that the construction company wants to be on schedule. They are now asking me what sort of compensation I want, in terms of points (I rejected a future stay). This is a CAT 4 hotel.
Compensation: What should I accept and ask for?
