    I just got email from the hotel (Sales Manager) Meghann: "I want to touch base with your regarding the group stay over the weekend. Unfortunately, there was significant damage done to one of the units (door) that the group occupied. I have attached the photographs of the damage for your review and your records. The damage cost was $600 ~ which was charged to the AMEX on file for the group. "

    Please help me: How Do I Handle This Situation?

    Thanks!

    Thanks Julia and Tom! This was my 2nd trip with the group and it was even way better than the first. Kudos! Btw, seeing 'Ski + Super Bowl Party' as the event for this past weekend, I already expected us to get home late. Lastly, it was great meeting everyone and chillen with new people at the Harrah's hot tub. See you all in March!

    Julia - At first it said Dublin BART which would have been perfect for us we are near there & very familiar with that BART. But now it is Richmond, never been to that BART. I read Ranch 99. So is it best to say wait near Ranch 99? Is there a cell # I can have in case I have issues finding it? I'll give us plenty of extra time just in case.

    Thanks! We are really excited!!!!!
