Maybe we don't want to be part of this Club anymore
You know the feeling. You get off a long flight to a far-off country, reach your hotel, feel the relief flooding over you as the place seems nice, and you’re checked into a nice room, and then hit the shower in an attempt to slough off the jet lag.
Hopefully, though, you won’t know the feeling that came next for a friend of ours last night when he checked into the Club Hotel in Singapore: the water was lukewarm. And stayed lukewarm while he ran it in the hope that it would heat up. It didn’t – and it still wasn’t hot enough to shower in.
At about 7pm, he called down to reception to let them know the water wasn’t hot. For two hours, they tried to fix it, to no avail. At 9pm, they offered to move him to another room – which had the same problem. They tried another – ditto. The staff told him there was a problem with the water heating throughout the hotel. No sh*t Sherlock.
