Although the accomodations were prepaid, I was refused check in if I did
not deposit $75. if I gave cash, I would not get cash back, the next
day, I explained it was only one night, it was the final leg of a 2 week
trip, the funds were low and would cause hardship, we would not charge
anything. I was refused refund on prepaid room, assured deposit would be
credited within hours of checkout. We starved, did not incur any
additional expenses, the deposit is still not credited to date, 4 days
later, we were informed of a family death, checked out early, no funds
reappeared, I had to go to a local pawnbroker to get cash for
transportation and food.
I STAYED AT THE HOTEL BECAUSE I AM A McPHERSON AND THE HOTEL WAS AT McPHERSON SQUARE. I WENT TO COLLEGE IN DC AND WORKED FOR THE ARCHITECTS THAT DESIGNED AND BUILT THE METRO SYSTEM, McPHERSON SQUARE STATION WAS DEDICATED TO ME AS A GAG GRADUATION GIFT, SO THERE WAS SENTIMENT INVOLVED. MY FATHER, LIKE GENRL JAMES B. MCPHERSON, WAS CAREER MILITARY, MAJOR JAMES G. McPHERSON, I HAVE A BAD TASTE OF THE MEMORY. MY HUSBAND AND I WERE APPREHENSIVE ABOUT TOUCHING ANYTHING IN THE ROOM, FOR FEAR OF BEING CHARGED. I WILL NOT STAY AT A CROWNE PLAZA FACILITY AGAIN. PLEASE CREDIT MY $75 DEPOSIT. IT IS NOW 8/24 AND NO CREDIT HAS MATERIALIZED.
