4/10 Fair

Dangerous hazard causing injury and negligent response. There is a continuous water leak from a vending machine at the bottom of the main stairs, causing water to pool on slippery tiles in one of the most high traffic areas of the hotel. My daughter slipped on the water and hit her head hard. Staff was notified. The manager did not respond or reach out, but instead through staff offered for we to leave our stay early. Hotel staff confirmed they’re already aware of the leak and have notified the 3rd party company for repair. In the meantime, everyday, there continues to be a hazard that is not appropriately addressed despite it being known to exist and also known to have injured a child. There’s not even a slip warning sign placed. I requested the manager contact me, repeatedly, including today at our premature check out, now consecutive days without a direct response. The only communication I received repeatedly in response to my communication request was through other staff relaying his messages, and the message was that I’m lucky to be able to leave early with partial refund. I’d still like the manager to contact me.
