I totally agree. I guess I am about as low-maintenance a guest as it comes (except when I am with my partner ). A lot of posters here seem to revel in name-dropping every experience they have had with a GM, but that goes with the territory of being a GM at a luxury hotel. I would certainly expect them to solve problems when they arise, although my first contact is always with the front desk if the need arises.
