justserenity07: Question for Travel Agents

get travel agents who get upset or assume I cant help them because
I am not where they want to book. This is not true? WE ARE well versed
in our hotels and brands. Some TA's get kind of mean and often times

Why do you assume because I am not in Nebraska or Ohio that I dont know anything about
that hotel? or the area surrounding it? Did you ask if we did?

have more respect for us and the job we do, I know a lot of you
