You stayed at a hotel and had a crappy one night- not sure what kind of settlement you are looking for but legal fees might be more then the settlement??? What is your case? No hot water, long check-in and check-out? **** happens- it sucks- but your not going to settle for big $$$$$$ because of that. Maybe if the bed had a knife in it and it went through your leg- then maybe $10,000 if your lucky. Or if you contacted AIDS because their was a needle in your bed maybe $100,000+. But no hot water and bad customer service= another free night or your money back??
JMHO- good luck and let us know how you make out.
