We love hotel employees here at Gadling, and it’s not just because they change our sheets and towels on command. (Though, it does help.) That’s why I’m excited to mention a blog by the General Manager of Vancouver’s Opus Hotel. Daniel Craig — no, not that Daniel Craig — pens entries about his experiences running the luxury property.
Daniel writes with an ease and wit that makes running the fancy-schmancy business sound simple. You’d think that he would stay hush-hush and maintain manager-guest privilege, but you’ll be glad he doesn’t. The GM details his exposures to a vandalizing drag queen, a naked guest, and a mysterious fish smell in a hallway… and that’s just three blog entries! There are nine months of stories that will keep you simultaneously laughing and cringing.
I enjoy the blog enough to consider staying at the Opus in the future. I guess the publicity worked. Though, I’ll have to be sure I don’t have too many drinks at the Opus Bar or I might just end up in the blog myself.
