The Claremont

The Claremont continues its streak of failing to recognize me. I imagine this must sound like I'm an egomaniac, but it just mystifies me that after 5 years of regular stays (at least 10 a year, I'd guess) they'd welcome me back as a loyal customer. But no.

The Christmas decorations have been replaced by a piano that no appears to have been hired to play



Otherwise, all is as usual. (Read: a little weird).

1) Someone or thing had a battle with with my curtains.






2) There were a couple of misfitting grates placed on the bathroom window/skylights




I was curious as to why they were there (when I checked in, it was dark), but daylight revealed their true purpose: The local pigeons have selected this particular portion of the roof to be their home at the hotel.



I think the grates keep you from seeing too much pigeon effluvium on your sky light.

One other peculiarity. The Claremont Hotel's background music was lifted from a CD assembled by Stephane Pompougnac for a tres groovy hotel in Paris. The disc is called "Etage 3" Hotel Costes. It's quite nice background music. (A little out of whack with the Claremont's decor, but what the heck.) Here's the disc




(The track that was playing was "A Reminiscent Drive" by Ambrosia.)

I think your relationship with the Claremont is dysfunctional. It's like a woman who doesn't give you the time of day and yet you keep coming back for the abuse.

If they greeted you warmly and were eager to see you, you'd blow the Claremont off for another hotel with bigger rooms.

I remember staying at the Fairmont in New Orleans back in the 90's for an away game trip for UF. (This was back when they had a decent budget for trips and such at the university.) We had a suite and when we looked out the window, there were all these nails and spikes on the ledges that made the view a little.... weird. It was only after we had asked at the desk what it was that we found out it was a pigeon deterrent. I guess part of their service was keeping the guests from being pooped on. Worked for me.

I always used to have problems with hotels, now i use a combination of active hotels and expedia and use them to check out other peoples reviews. If more than 2 people give a poor review then i move on, its not worth the risk.

Always check the hotel before going. I now always check out the hotel on trip advisor. its not worth the risk.
