The author of the presentation asked me to remove it, after getting a snotty note from Joseph Crosby (General Manager, DoubleTree Club Hotel Houston).
I got my own snotty note from Mr Crosby:
Please provide written authorization, either electronic or hard copy, for use of the Powerpoint Presentation titled "Yours is a very bad Hotel".
DoubleTree Club Hotel Houston
Mr Crosby isn't the copyright holder, and isn't in any position to demand anything from me. Further, as a Hilton HHonors cardmember myself, I can't say that I'm thrilled and delighted with this kind of heavy-handed treatment from one of the chain's employees, but there you go. If this was the only note I'd gotten, I would have left the material online; but since the author emailed me and asked me to take it down, I've done it. After all, it's his PPT.
Still looking for the presentation? There's a good chance that an archive has survived at archive.org or in Google's cache. Happy hunting.
This takes the prize for the most clueless message ever. Ever.
