“ The New York "Chicago Style" Steppers group was pleasant towards out-of-town visitors, most of the guests were unfriendly toward us. The hotel management provided us with some chairs, upon request; however, there was no food available, except for peanuts on the bar. The DJ played the music too loud, the dance floor was horrible (hotel stock), and should have been centered in the room, which would have eliminated the "front-back" issue. It would have been nice to have had a photographer on site at the hotel to buy photos from; we have seen no photos of ourselves on the website, but, we know that we were present! ”
