FITES Feedback / Re: FITES 2017 - New Hotel - Reviews are awful

When we went to check in at the Eisenhower hotel, they told us that we were actually staying in the Aspire hotel

This is really frustrating.  Our crew of ten people decided not to attend this year specifically because the Eisenhower had such awful reviews (bloodstained sheets, bugs, etc.).  None of the communications we received ever mentioned that we'd actually be in a different venue.  None of the event pages mentioned this either.

Even when FITES staff weighed in earlier on this thread, none of them ever said "Hey, we know the Eisenhower looks bad but don't worry about it; we'll be in a different venue."

Maybe next year, communication will be better.

We weren't in a different venue. We were in the Eisenhower's Grand Ballroom.

The Hotel never told us they were moving people who made reservations for the Eisenhower side to the Aspire side. They are the same hotel. You could have booked at either but they told us they'd only guarantee the room rate for the Eisenhower side.

You also didn't have to stay in either hotel.

We didn't know some of us were switched to another part of the venue until we checked in.

So, apparently there were two hotels connected:

Eisenhower Hotel - http://eisenhower.com/
Aspire Hotel - http://www.aspiregettysburghotel.com/

When we went to check in at the Eisenhower hotel, they told us that we were actually staying in the Aspire hotel (not sure how that works as I didn't book), but the Aspire hotel was great, no issues... we had two queen sized beds, a couch, desk, tv, bathroom, etc. - even a microwave and coffee station.  I assume majority of the awful reviews are for the Eisenhower hotel and NOT the Aspire hotel - just FYI for next year :)

wow, that really sucks, especially when all the quick ways to fix a something just keep failing, one after another.  Surprised you tried going down the path of actually paying them.  Not sure i'd do the same out of pure principle, but I've also never been in the same situation either, so I don't know for sure.  There's also the feeling of violation where they've spent who knows how much time on your system(s).

Agreed on how we are often lazy about what we do at home where we'd never dream of doing at work.

Glad you got everything back and they actually didn't scam you further.  Definitely taking a look at my port floating configs and whatnot, just in case.  ;)
