Mandarin Oriental Boston Tries to Fake Us Out
Wow, people must think we hotel guests are really gullible. Why else then, do they (presumably people who work for the hotel) post positively glowing reviews of the property they’re pimping on travel web sites under lame fake names like Suzy Jacuzzi? They obviously think you’re not smart enough to see through all the peppy PR speak.
We’re looking at you Mandarin Oriental Boston and your one and only review of the property on TripAdvisor. “Suzy Jacuzzi” describes the hotel’s “unique artwork [and] subtle color hues,” the “friendly and efficient” staff, it’s “great location” and—the true mark of PR speak—“tastefully decorated” rooms and “state of the art equipment” at the gym.
All those words set off our BS radar, which is a shame, because any good PR person should believe enough in the product they’re promoting to let it speak for itself—something we’re sure a Mandarin Oriental property would be able to do.
If you can give us a PR-speak-free review of the hotel, please, do share it with us in the comments below.
