My agent had been sent to investigate in London, but I hadn’t heard from him since. Today, I recieved this note:

Hello! I found this amazing hotel with a very loud echo, and then I traveled to Lima to visit my Papa. I then traveled to India for a tango dance-off! They had great whiskey there, and I met a man named Alfa, and his wife Sierra! They were great at the Tango, and I got paired with Romeo (Alfa said that I danced like his papa would!)
Cheers!

What is he trying to say with this note?

Read the NATO phonetic alphabet letters in the message:
Hello! I found this amazing hotel with a very loud echo, and then I traveled to Lima to visit my Papa. I then traveled to India for a tango dance-off! They had great whiskey there, and I met a man named Alfa, and his wife Sierra! They were great at the Tango, and I got paired with Romeo (Alfa said that I danced like his papa would!) Cheers!
The letters spell HELP IT WAS TRAP.
