Whatever miniscule support I may have had for this project has been completely lost in this Burj/Raffles nonsense. The Clarence is already a terrific hotel and if they can’t attract sufficient business, then they are simply running it badly.
This would have been akin to the Shelbourne redevelopment demolishing everything but the facade facing St Stephen’s Green. Instead, the Shelbourne project rebuilt the dated rooms and improved upon the already magnificent bar and restaurant rooms.
Give me the Shelbourne over the Burj al Arab any day.
