The facial by Caroline

Everything was really nice. One employee made a comment that a particular service wasn't for "Travel Zoo people," which I thought was a little insulting. I wonder if the fact a client is using a Travel Zoo voucher might not be known by providers, except by the front desk mployees. I feel like I should get the same experience and treatment of a customer paying full price, even though I took advantage of a great deal through Travel Zoo.
