Missing Description

Hi,

 

we have description for each listing however, it doesn't show up in google local business list. It shows our listing with phone, website, photo, etc but no short description (under review and above address) like any other corporate listing does have such description. Why our description doesn't show despite the fact there is one? Am I missing something and it is not description that shows under review and above address?

 

thank you for helping

Did you create the business listing under a language setting other than the one you are viewing the business listing?
The description is shown only when viewed under the language setting used to create the business listing in the first place.
Could you please provide the URL of the Local business page?
Thank you

adding to what @treebles said an other important fact:

 

The description will show in the classic G+ only. It doesn't show up in the new G+ view (regardless having the correct language interface or not)

 

I'm not aware any option to get the description shown up for a business page to the public other then using the classic G+

I believe the language has always been English. We didn't have any reason to have other language as the business is located in US with most of the guest english speaking.
p.s. I logged in and I don't see any settings on language

oyu seem talking about plus.google.com/103206551291310682539

and I referred to its specified "description" (or introduction) "This extended stay Minnesota rental is 1Br/2Ba furnished home with blablabla..."

as below in classic G+:

The "description" you seem referring to for the other results of "extended stay minneapolis" like for "Residence Inn Minneapolis Downtown at The Depot"

4.2  · 3-star hotel
Refined studios & suites with kitchen offering free WiFi & hot breakfast, plus a fitness center are gathered by Google algos  from the web.
