Profanity filter:

Hi. What is the profanity in this review?

"This is a nice hotel - the clean bathroom, the nice and classy room, the service and the friendliness of the staff.

Those are the good things.

The bad: location is in some sort of casino district with added night clubs. Being two guys it wasn't all that fun having people trying to get you to go to their "special" club, almost harassing you when don't want to enter. During the day it's wonderful though and the location is in many other ways excellent.

One more thing - and it is more concerning being a non-straight traveller. This is not a big issue- perhaps. But when you're non-straight you sometime have to check your hotels in advance and sometime choose specific hotels. This hotel had good reviews though and this could be considered just as nothing. I've seen worse and I know the staff was just trying to be friendly. But if me and my husband ( married in our country) have booked a room with a double bed please do not question that it is two guys and try to change our booking to a twin bed alternative single rooms.

We got our room but the argument in the beginning confused me - I missed the free drink and just felt awkward. Please don't do that again! "

Hmmm none of the usual suspects are leaping out at me. The US filter does have its own "special" words that it finds offensive while the rest of the world don't - but I didn't spot any of the ones I know of.

Some of the other regulars here may spot it so hang tight till they have a read.

Can't begin to imagine what it might be, but I would try non-straight as two separate words. Maybe the word "special" in quotes could have connotations. No logic here, just guessing really.

I'd love to hear if it is "harassing" the offending word. I found many reviews with that word on the review subject line.

I just copied and pasted your text in a review form. My subject line was Could be better. No problem.

What title did you give to the review? The offending word has to be in your subject line.

Must be a problem with the app then.. First time i also had the word "gay traveller" but removed that and this above version is one in which I removed all these words. Could be that the app keep remember my original review when reposting.

The title have been -"good hotel but..."
