Air-Con broken at a hot night. Little help given.
I regretted staying in this hotel. I stayed in room 201 during from 1-Dec to 3-Dec. The air-con was not working at all. The first night was hot, around 32 degree celsius outside. Windows are sealed completely with glass and cannot be opened. Hot weather plus steam from our showers were killing us. Hotel rejected room change request, saying they were fully booked. They only offered a fan, which provided little helps to us. Hotel said they have sent technician to fix it next day but it still did not work. After complaint escalation, we only received an email with a discount of 20% next time we stay with them within 1 year(interesting, when you try to compensate people, you try to set a deadline) even I have told them perviously I have no plan travelling to Sydney in the near future. No other compensation given.
