Welcome to Le Bristol Hotel

Welcome to Le Bristol Hotel

1 أبريل, 2006

It may not look like all that from the outside (not much in the Middle East, outside of Dubai, does), but Le Bristol remains a world-class hotel after five decades of changing sheets. Somehow I got a room on the cheap, but was absurdly pampered from the moment I walked into the lobby -- and was handed a warm, rose-scented washcloth to clean my face and a glass of fresh-squeezed orange juice. While I constantly felt underdressed, I never felt unwelcome.
