The last time I went to Splash they'd essentially cleared out the entire skylight sort of bit above the entrance, and it look like they've put these in their place.
I can't say I'm very happy about it either to be honest. If they had just added the 'christmas' lights then maybe it wouldn't be so bad. Sure they're pretty cheap, and don't fit in, but at least what is in existance would be left intact.
But no, instead they decide to rip out perfectly good themeing (Something Splash prides itself on) and yet again proved that they aren't willing to put the effort in when it comes to replacements.
I guess all we can hope is that these are a temporary measure until something better is put in place in due course :|
I still don't see what the issue was with the umbrellas though. Even if for example as lighting they were no longer useful (i.e. broken, or unable to obtain spare parts) they were still a brilliant piece of themeing, and could easily have stayed in place while other lighting was installed. For example, a set of the coloured party lights like in Marg's drapped around the wall inside the skylight.
The doorbell on ATH is certainly a nice touch though. It does make you wonder what is going on when they can make such a small, but still big addition and improvment to one area, while at the same time beginning to ruin another :|
Just please say that there is going to be something better put in to compensate. The hotels both have storng, well established themes. They do not need diminishing to be replaced with genericness. They need stable additions which reinforce the current theme and fit in.
Anyway, that's my hotel rant over. Next please :P
