I was placed in this hotel by Kuwait Airways whilst awaiting a connecting flight next morning. The room I was allocated was adequate for a short one night stay. However, when I got off the transfer bus and walked up to the reception desk the male receptionist (who was doing nothing) blatantly ignored me, no smile, no greeting, nothing. He pretended I didn't exist. Other male guests exited the bus behind me and he immediately began to check them in. After he checked in 3 men whilst ignoring me the man who had accompanied us from the Kuwait Airways transfer desk took pity, went around the back of the desk and checked me in himself. This kind of blatant sexism and rudeness is totally unacceptable. There is no excuse.
