asheChecking on an upcoming stay was told that they no longer have an EL. I expressed dissatisfaction and was told that other Renaissances are also doing away with their ELs too. Is this becoming a trend?
I stay at FS hotels partly because of the ELs and enjoy relaxing in them, getting water and evening snacks. Then there is breakfast. I was told that I would be given a voucher for a continental breakfast. I told them that the breakfast in the ELs have eggs and meat as well as other items and if they do substitute it should be for a full breakfast. I was told that I could have that for an upcharge.
Has any one noticed ELs or CLs being closed? How do you feel about this?
The lounge at this hotel has been closed for a number of years. They give you plenty of bonus points per day instead.
When you check in, ask them about the room to the left of the counter behind the gift shop. You will need to be given a separate key for access and there you will find coffee, water and soda.
Thanks. I am now holding a reservation for the FFI as well. A lot cheaper but nothing around to walk to. It is nice that the Ren does give water and it has a better location. Not sure which way to go. Finding more Marriotts without a CL as well. Wondering if this is the start of a trend.
