This was a first for me. It’s my first morning in Shanghai and before touring the city I figured I’d do a quick hotel tour to get some pictures. All was well till I made it to the pool, where the employee informed me “I’m so sorry, but you can’t take any pictures of the pool or gym unless you’re in them.” Fair enough, though there wasn’t a single person at the pool or gym, so if their goal is to protect peoples’ privacy, there really wasn’t a need for it.
So given what she said I responded with “okay, do you mind taking my picture then?” And she proceeded to snap pictures of me at the pool, at the hot tub, and in the gym. I always stood in the sides of the pictures so I could crop myself out, and she kept suggesting I move to the center of the pictures.
So apologies in advance for the lack of quality pictures of what may very well be the most stunning pool I’ve ever seen. I’ll probably go back later with my iPhone…
Has anyone run into a similar situation at a hotel?
