This a review for the property that was never attended. I had a change in plans due to a new job as of July and at this time it gave the property 4 months to reply to my cancellation and possible refund. This was purchased through expedia in Feb with a no refund. With this being said Expedia did not help me at all. This property doesn't answer their phones, not even to book a reservation. The google reviews in the last 5 months would have given the property a zero if they could and I am out 782 bucks for a property I never got to stay at. I am disappointed this is the best business that Expedia or Congress Suites would ever offer anyone. I hope Expedia doesn't even have them as an option anymore. I have never heard of a property in the "hotel" business never answering their phones or email. Expedia couldn't ever get them to answer either. So if you wanna throw away money this is a great place to donate to. Between expedia and I we reached out to the property over 30 times with no response except expedia stated x1 that the property would answer the phones on Sat from 11-5pm and this was not true after many tries. Due to this expensive event I will not be using expedia again. They have had my business for over 10 years and quite frankly this was too costly to not help a customer aquire a different day to stay or making sure that the property got back with them or their customers.

    Our room was outstanding! The only problem we had was on Sunday there was a party in the restaurant below us that had very loud music until 2am.
