In the last night, we planed to have a drink in the terrace, but all tables are full, so waiter suggested us to chill a drink in the Compass Bar. After we went gown the elevator, no waiter stands by the door to welcome guests, and we looked around to find a table. A waitress appeared and told me " Excuse me sir, you wear improper short pants and I am sorry that we have dress code request. You can't enter in the bar." I explained that it's not casual pants, I wear the latest trendy short suit pants! It's FORMAL suit dress code. I don't need you to teach me how to dress genteelly. I lived in Europe for several years and work as fashion& hospitality industry, none of people have ever ever question my stylish taste. Your well-established hotel represents luxury and stylish culture and opens so many haute couture boutiques stores in the lobby, but why does your hotel refuse to welcome customers dressing in Louis Vuitton, Prada, Dior Homme? Isn't it ridiculous? Hotel has standard, but please never judge people from clothes.
