Where water has been, mold will follow, like that water from the fourth-floor pool in the tower that intruded into the spa treatment rooms. Since there were complaints of mold, standing water and degraded air quality, the Health Department’s visit to the Mandara Spa is going to cost up to $70,000. That’s just pennies compared to the hotel’s 2002 settlement of $1.8 million.
