What impressed you most?

For me it was the guy in the lift.

I've always liked good suits.

You can tell an off the peg suit by looking at the shoulders, they are never right. That's because few people have shoulders of exactly the same size, due to slight over-development of their favoured arm.

But his fitted perfectly, no imperfections in either shoulder, so likely made to measure.
This would seem probable as he would be seen by many guests who would be in close proximity with him in the lift.

so she takes her dog... then get's the doorman to take it for a crap - lovely
That's because she was a Hambro.

I wonder if she was a good tipper?

I hope it was more than the bag for the dog poo..

I've never considered myself to be a socialist or even left of centre but watching this I can't help thinking there is something immoral in the way some people spend the sort of money mentioned!

Some of these requirements actually make me think Michael Jackson wasn't so weird after all.

Great show but...I'm finding the woman doing the interviewing REALLY irritating. She is asking such inane questions...

I noticed the managers face drop at the mention of over running baths.

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!
When you're dealing with the super rich, $2000 is absolutely nothing, some would get ar$ey being bothered over such a sum.
I'm not joking either 'you called me for that?'

They did mention that it depends on the sum of money involved, cut off point is probably based on the person who stayed.

Yeah I suppose leaving 2k in a hotel where they might be paying 5k a night is a bit like me leaving a tenner in a travelodge

I'd probably not be bothered that much to rush back for it

Quite clearly guests have so much money they are bored and don't know what to do with it. I feel sorry for the guests in a way, If I had that money I would start businesses and TV channels, do something productive.
