This is a typical Sheraton convention hotel with a huge lobby and a full-service bar for complaining about why your boss sent you to a tropical island to do work.
If the hotel was a Hyatt or a Motel 6, it would not have mattered. I came, I snapped photos, I crashed. The End.
Virgin, Virgin, Virgin. There are virgins everywhere. First, it was the Virgin Clubhouse in JNB.
This lounge is called a clubhouse and for good reason. Like the Costco setup of the Turkish Airlines Lounge in IST, the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse at LHR is novel.
If you're looking for a good laugh, buy a huge pumba and put it in the overhead without closing the bin.
