    My questions are aimed at Hugh C, Manager at Imperial. Your response to my recent review was appauling. Here are the questions I would like you to answer, considering you apparently do not have the ability to answer my e-mail sent over a week ago, yet can respond on TripAdvisor within 2 days... No.1: Why did the night porter blame us and tell us the hotel was not 24 hours? No.2: If the night porter had been seeing to a guest in their room why did he use the excuse of washing up? No.3: If the night porter was seeing to someone in their room why was this not explained when you responded to Lucy B's review? No.4: Why has my e-mailed complaint not been answered after 11 days? No.5: Do you deem it to be ok to leave 4 under 20 women outside in the cold for 40 minutes at 4am? No.6: What has been done about the night porter and how he treated your guests? I would like these questions answered and my e-mail complaint answered also. I feel very let down by my stay here and even more let down by the way that so-called management deal with complaints. - Jasmine Chilcott.
