Claridges website is down right now. Probably people trying to see how much their rooms are.

Normal rooms start from about 400 I think.

I left my camera in the room safe in a Sheraton once. Remembered on my way to the airport, but didn't have time to go back. It was one I went to regularly for business, so I rang up to tell them to keep it for me till my next visit, but it was a right battle to get them to go get it out of the room safe first.

Not seen anything here at Claridges worth 5k a night yet

It surprises me somewhat that a guest can leave money in a room and it seems they don't call the guest to tell them/automatically return it to them. I would have thought at 5000 a night that would be a given. Weird. Also the TV's being an hour ahead.. that seems like such a lazy oversight for such a price too.

WHAT?! They're insisting a full change of how a floor is used and they DON'T COMMIT?!

The thought "Oh FFS!" MUST go through the mgt team's mind...

That's what I thought, when I worked in a hotel and items were left, we contacted the owners rather than wait for them to call!

I found that odd too. They also seem to be implying that the head housekeeper is being over fastidious, but I don't think her attention to detail is that exceptional.
