Sheraton to offer compensation to dissatisfied guests

Sheraton Hotels & Resorts has introduced a program that guarantees compensation to dissatisfied guests. The Service Promise program offers compensation and an apology to guests who complain of slow or poor service, missing amenities, billing problems or other inconveniences. The problem also will be corrected, if possible.

Options for compensation include credit toward the stay, a gift certificate for a future Sheraton stay, amenities such as spa services or preferred guest points.

Local participants include the Sheraton Columbia Hotel, the Sheraton International Hotel at Baltimore-Washington International Airport, the Sheraton Inner Harbor Hotel and the Sheraton Baltimore North Hotel.
