The reception staff was the most terrible -extremely rude attitude. We were shocked to receive such a bad treatment in our beloved Plaza, being here multiplied times before. Especially from the desk manager named “Michael” who was basically shouting and talking with us like we are his misbehaving staff. And all this when we lived in Penthouse Suite, celebrating our Valentine Day! Couldn’t be more awful, shame for the whole management team
Everything Specially the terrace. Patrick in the reception is the best
All of the requirements and requests were provided
Definitely was the friendly and courteous staff!
