The Yelp-er starts by acknowledging the lack of harmony between the hotel's art and the hotel itself:
"It looks like Las Vegas and chess had a baby and it got sick and threw up all over the place- no joke there are 10' tall chess pieces in the lobby and the carpet all makes me sick"
OK, fair enough. The colors are a bit much. But is that reason enough to sound off on Yelp? Apparently, yes:
"The catering did not try that hard. Meh. BUT PEOPLE! 10' CHESS PIECES. ONE NIGHT IN BANCOCK - DID ABBA STAY HERE? WTF"
And while he does admit he would come back to stay here for his birthday:
"It is going to be awesome to get D'D up and play 10' chess"
...he ultimately warns prospective guests to stay the heck away.
"if I was staying at a hotel with 10' chess pieces or having a meeting and people came in I would be so embarrassed I would have to die."
And there you have it. Not just an awkward design that would deter him from spending time in the lobby, but so shame-inducing that he would have to die.
What about you? Have you spotted any features in a hotel recently that touched a nerve? Or that made you like the hotel so much you recommended it to all your friends? We wanna hear about it!
