Street cleaning in the Royal Borough is 5 Star: unlike the May Fair Hotel in Stratton Street....
Every so often a French exhibition company comes to London and uses one of the great hotels to hold their Art Deco exhibitions
Their crude promotion of the event involves sticking thousands of A5 leaflets under car windscreens throughout and beyond the Royal Borough.
Clearing up the Royal Boroughs' streets after this deluge of litter is a major task.
Most hotels, like the Dorchester and Mandarin Oriental, were unaware of the antics of the organiser.
However,when they found out their name was being used in this vulgar and anti-social way they either cancelled the event,(The Connaught) or sent teams to collect the rubbish off the thousands of cars targeted.
The major hotels have now banned the organiser so they have gone very down market and targeted third rate hotels: in this case the May Fair.
This is a an example of the A5 flyer
A concerned resident rang the May Fair, thinking they might be concerned about the image presented to residents....and, one assumes, customers.
Not a bit...the duty manager, an elegantly named Anthonypaul Attenborough said nonchalantly there was nothing that could be done, but they might send one man to pick up the thousands of leaflets! Oh yes, and he empathised with us
and would discuss with the General Manager on Monday!
When asked whether he would cancel the event he said that was not possible. Obviously the thought of the thousands of pounds lost stopped that idea in its tracks!
When recommending hotels leave this socially irresponsible hotel off your list. The Dame sees that it is the target of rude comments in Trip Adviser so you will miss nothing!
The May Fair clearly don't give a damn about residents or hard working council street cleaning teams.
The billionaire owner of the hotel, Mr Jasminder Singh refuses to get involved.....
But, being inordinately proud and show off about his OBE, one would have assumed civic pride might have made him spend some of his fortune stopping his hotel customers littering the streets of the Royal Borough: after all, he loves being around the Royal Family!
