Babylon revisited?

Babylon revisited?

Thank you, Linda Woodhouse, for highlighting what a travesty Hotel Babylon was, both in its depiction of the hotel industry in general and the five-star market in particular (Caterer, 16 March, page 23).

Nobody in the hotel industry would find it difficult to come up with damning tales of the good, the bad and the ugly - every industry has them. However, to suggest that a five-star operation in central London would be managed in such a cynical and cavalier way is beyond belief.

All is not lost if you missed it the first time around. Apparently, a second series will be shown at some time in the future. Now wouldn't it be fun to find out who the mysterious co-author was?
