They're trying their best. Unfortunately their laundry service bundled the entire guests underwear together and I had to pick mine out of others. The assistant manager terminated their contract with the cleaners. I appreciate the sentiment, but we need laundry done, and it's been a few days without laundry service. Next time I suggest finding a replacement before terminating the service you have. I suggested Beverly Crest Cleaners about a mile away on Santa Monica Blvd and Century Park West. I was hoping they'd have a contract with them before I called them. The staff is young and nice and are doing their best to accommodate the needs of myself and coworkers. They're trying their best.
