Welcome To The Wellesley London, Where Three Bottles of Water Cost $127
but they were 0.5 liter bottles
No, the waters were £5.50 each. Not aware of the minimum charge?
The costumer had never seen the menu, so he wasn't aware of the minimum charges, wasn't told by the waiting staff either it seems.
Doesn't the math look wrong?
anyone who sits down at the terrace of the bar - though not the bar itself - after 4pm must meet a minimum spend of £25 per head.
I see what looks like two issues:
1. How does £25 per head * two people = £50.17?
2. Shouldn't the £16.50 count towards that minimum?
I would expect to see a £50 minimum less £16.50 = £33.5 charge to get to minimum of £50 for two persons?
I see he was meeting two others.
Good one, this has bugged me too, as I saw it the same way. It's all about 3 people.
It was him plus two others = 3, so they adjusted the bill to get it to £75.
Nevertheless, it's odd that a London hotel Bar has something called "minimum spend" from 4 PM. Even more so because they didn't tell him or his guests.
Simply stated, highway robbery!
I think you mean motorway robbery?
Makes the $4 bottles of water at the Marriott sound like a steal.
I wonder how much of a tip Jessica received.
Depends on their sizes.
Albeit in this case it should have been "cash back" for the customer.
Well look it this way. Only $9,925 left for the 90 day AA Citi Exec card spend
Reminds me of the movie (actually the both versions) of Brewster's Millions. "Quick give us 3 bottles of water, where do I sign?"
8.33 service charge?
Maybe its like Domino's..."Any delivery charge is not a tip to your driver".
I think Jessica got shafted.
Indeed, Jessica was clearly in the "middle" of all of this.
