You may have noticed my absence for a few days. I have been in Sydney for work but am now safely home.
I stayed at the Four Seasons Hotel. Depending on which site you read it is 4 or 5 star. However, I found much of the experience over-the-top and excessive. The lighting in the foyer would illuminate an entire village in a Third World country. The extravagance was overwhelming and I can honestly say that I am relieved to be home. Give me the simple life any day.
There seems to be an ever-increasing competition between luxury hotel brands to outdo the opposition so this type of experience is not limited to this particular hotel. I wonder how many people actually find this appealing.
What are your thoughts and experiences?
