How to do an hotel 05 Jan, 2006
I have just returned from a wee trip to Manchester (work-related). Caught up with one or two of m’learned colleagues, and worked hard. I stayed in a different hotel this time around, one much handier for the office etc. And what a splendid place it was too: Malmaison. A laid-back hotel, stylish but not overly-styled, and with plenty of CDs to borrow from reception. The room was very comfortable and welcoming — not the usual bland corporate thing — and, and free broadband.
Yes, free internet access. I wonder if the big hotel chains are paying attention. When you’re spending upwards of £100 per night to stay in a hotel room, the least they can do is provide stuff like that. None of this $15 - 20 / day for iffy access!
