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?
I’ll admit that I love some 4-5 star luxury hotel. It’s just so different to every day life, and it’s not for keeps. I don’t think I’d continue to enjoy it for a long time (like if I lived in a hotel, or was someone who was regularly surrounded by something so opulent). I love the occasional times I’m in high end foyers, with the flowers, oh my! And I love dramatic lighting. There are certainly other excesses I have disdain for, but this isn’t mine.
I understand your love of the high life for a treat. We are all different which is what makes life interesting.
