    To be sure, the Marathon is one of the highlights of the year with the Imperial relishing the opportunity it can play in this City wide event. Whilst the circumstances this guest describes are clearly unfortunate, one has to remember the hotel was also fully...More

    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.
