I wanted to raise an issue that has really started to piss me off recently. Has anybody noticed that since the Hilton Management team has gone and the owners are now managing the property themselves something fishy has started??

I cannot be the only one to notice that the police have started closing off the semanggi slip road that leads on to sudirman. They have started doing this at random times of the day and night when there is no reason to do so. Well no reason other than to force cars to get to sudirman by going through the Sultan Hotel and paying Rp. 2000 parking charge!

Call me cynical but I am sure those parking guys and police guys have come up with a way to create another toll road in JKT.

come the revolution these guys will be first against the wall !!!

Welcome to Jakarta, Chewwy. But I think this has been going on for quite a while now. Not only recently.And I think it had happened even when the hotel was still called HILTON.
If you can't describe what you are doing as a process, you don't know what you're doing.
