          Regarding the Management Response to my 3 star March 7 review (Nice Place and Location), our concerns about the daily housekeeping WERE brought to the attention of the front desk. The person at the front desk said they would pass the concerns along, however, they didn't seem too interested in dealing with it. I suspect they did not record it. Please do not hide behind the excuse that the client did not bring it to your attention, which is a common thread in all of your management responses.
