Yours Is A Very Bad Hotel: Hotel guests immortalize bad hotel experience with PowerPoint slides

Haha, sarcasm never gets cold. On Nov 15, 2001, two business travellers from Seattle, Tom Farmer and Shane Atchison, turned up at the DoubleTree Club hotel in Houston with a guaranteed room booking that turned out not to be guaranteed after all.

Naturally, they went on to mock the hotel by churning out an entertaining review of their experience — complete with scathing statistics, hilarious flowcharts and the such — in the form of a first-class PowerPoint presentation titled ‘Yours Is A Very Bad Hotel’, and dispatched it to both the hotel management and their friends.

The latter went on to forward the damning document to their friends, who also did the same thing. It pretty much spread like wildfire online. 13 years later, the presentation is still well and alive in multiple sites on the Internet. It beats anything we’ve seen on TripAdvisor.
