It's generally been my experience for at least the least decade (probably longer) that heat gets turned down in the middle of the night. Maybe others haven't had this problem.

Of course the space issue is not only about large rooms and suites in luxury venues but, in a reverse sense, the overall low number of habitations ... being low in luxury establishments.

Las Ventanas al Paraiso -- 83

Halekulani -- 443 (pushing the envelope)

Agreed!

One of the best experiences we've had was at FS Florence in February. They have 116 rooms, but that includes Il Conventino which was closed during our stay due to the low season, which brought the room count down to around 70 I believe.

That's the right size for a Four Seasons! They think they can do 300+ and keep luxury service standards but experience has shown me otherwise.

and some companies have mostly smaller properties

some small properties have facilities on par with big hotel

residences, multi-bedroom, members can raise occupancy

Luxury hotel expectations?

Watching this https://www.my5.tv/posh-hotels-with-...nigel/season-1

I've stayed in the Berkley in London, on the show they say they measure the bedsheets and the concierge even brings puppies to your room (after the housekeeper noticing that the guest was missing his dog). So when I stayed I told them i was missing my cat, but nothing happened

What should one expect at a luxury hotel? The bedsheets perfectly ironed, no dust or fingerprints anywhere?

I guess you should sue.

One should expect luxury. That means different things to different people.
