          We had a reservation for November 24, Thanksgiving, checking out on the 25th. We were unable to make it to your hotel due to an impasse in the road caused by the hurricane conditions. The next day we were able to visit the Hideaway Hotel and requested a refund. All of the power was out and the systems were down. We were assured by your courteous staff that we would receive a full refund as soon as all the computers were up and working. I am writing to check up on that refund. Thank you very much for letting me know when I can expect the refund. Sincerely, Lynn Veldman
