Spelling enjoys a rest at the Holiday Inn

19 February 2010

This has to be a wind-up. There's no way on God's Green Earth that a) a professional copywriter would write that, or b) management at Holiday Inn would sign-off on the designs. If you can't read the line of text underneath, it says:

"We are so popular that sometimes we simply rum out of space for you to hold your informal meeting, why not enuire at reception for the availability of one of our meeting rooms or syndicate rooms which can be hired by the hour?"

Seriously, you can spell 'syndicate' correctly, but not 'quiet'? Perhaps the customer service team at Three have diversified and moved into copywriting:

    I understand "quiet" was misspelled, but the fact that they used "no were" instead of "nowhere"? This has to be a hoax

    Gotta be fake!...I mean...uhhhh
  • WaWaWa
    Given that Holiday Inn can't even cook simple meals without destroying them, the fact that they cannot spell is no surprise to be honest!!
