On the internet nothing ever ends it seems, so a complaint letter written to a New York hotel dating back to a stay in 2004 came across my screen a couple of weeks ago. The apparently genuine letter was written by a disgruntled guest of the Hudson Hotel in New York. It hilariously details his […]

In past posts we have brought a look at some weird, wonderful and unique hotel rooms, so now, at a time when much of the world is in lockdown and travel is near impossible, here are a few more glimpses of the world we are hoping to visit when life returns to normality. Conrad Maldives […]

The President, a Hotelier… So why not you?

So hotelier Donald Trump has been President for some time now – who would have thought it and who said our industry doesn’t provide opportunities? Well at least it does in the United States of America, the land of the free and home of the brave! With his unorthodox style of operating he consistently ruffles […]
