Hotel del nightmare

San Francisco, California

-Front desk manager, Hanna, very rude (actually said "you should call your management friends" when discussing my reservations with her) -Planned 60th Wedding Anniversary for my parents in April, with multiple follow-ups with stand. Booked three rooms. Only one room was honored, and that room was under construction (awnings had been removed from balcony, without notifying us that the room (or the hotel for that matter) was under construction. I'm still waiting for promised umbrellas to be brought up to the room (I've checked out and am back in San Francisco). -Was never told about construction in hotel. -Asked to move to the Beach Village at the Del, but was told (by Hanna) that there were no rooms available. I found availability on YOUR website, and went down to the front desk to speak to Hanna about it. I finally gave up. -Bags were left at the front desk. After four calls, over mutilple hours, in which we were told "there is one family ahead of us", bags never came. Had to go down to the lobby at midnight (with our 8 year old niece well past her bedtime), at which point bellman said "we never received an order for this bag). Found bag in storage area next to front desk. -Room service order was wrong, required 3 trips to get it right. Twice. -Plumbing didn't work in one of the rooms. -All calls to the front desk were routed to hold music. Four times I was put "on hold" for ten minutes plus (once to get my car, once for room service). -Was told we would be credited for a night in each room for the multiple issues we endured, was only comped one night, for one room. -Spent $200+ to rent beach chairs and umbrellas. When we showed up to have them placed, we were told they were "out of towels", but that we could "go get some" at the pool. Got to the pool and were told they were "short on towels" and we could only have 2, for 5 people. -Ordered flowers to be sent to the room prior to check-in. Via the concierge. Weeks in advance. Received a call from the concierge while at the airport that they could not deliver the flowers because my reservation "had been canceled". It hadn't been canceled. -Had to wait for our car endlessly, each time we left the hotel. Couldn't call down for the car in advance, because we were put on hold for "guest services" for 10 min at a time. This is as much as I have time for this morning. My parents were engaged at the Del 61 years ago. I saved an entire year to be able to afford this trip for my family. It was a disaster, and so sad to see. We've been staying at the hotel for decades. This will be our last visit.

Bellevue, Washington

This has to be the biggest hotel disappointment I’ve ever had. DO NOT STAY HERE . It is over priced , the service is awful, the rooms are run down, and it will not be the vacation you are dreaming of, not even close! I could go on and on, but the dissatisfaction started immediately - room service can’t get anything right, long waits for bad restaurants, hotel staff is unhappy and not helpful, everything has a huge price tag that isn’t worth it. (it’s $100 to sit in a chair on the beach) BIGGEST MISTAKE EVER TO STAY HERE AND WILL NEVER RETURN!!!
