Noma Mandarin Oriental Terrible

Discussion in 'Luxury Hotels' started by JohnBrian, May 14, 2014.  |  Print Topic

  1. Noma is coming to Mandarin Oriental which you only book if you book a package or a obnoxious and awful lunch booking. This short media stunt rather has my eyes rolling. Would it be so hard to allow every hotel to book and to give preference to hotel guests of the hotel rather than book via them only. and its not combinable to virtuoso or bookable via travel agents. WTF?

    So basically you want them to sell something that they are at least acting like they expect to sell out at a much reduced rate? Good luck with that. It's their business - they set the price.

    The lack of a Virtuoso credit is not surprising- doesn't Virtuoso give you a $100 F&B credit? Maybe Noma doesn't want credits for their food handed out.
