The amazing thing is this entire complex is nothing but one big room. The image above shows all the little desks and stuff, andthe image below shows what it looks like form the outside.

We asked people who stay at Four Seasons Hotels whether they would rather have their room cleaned or $10 off the room rate on their next trip…

And they told us! Nearly 7 out of 10 said they would rather have the $10! What does this mean for the hotel industry? What does this mean for the maids who perform the housekeeping services? Good lord!

Can’t wait!
