    I am very surprised at the accusations made by Netra L. I was in the hotel at the time and your discrimination is clearly on your side only. Yes of course sometimes as with every hotel, mistakes are made but I guarantee you were taken to another hotel, probably better within a few minutes of Encounter. As for the airport pick up, was this due to early arrival and you wouldn't wait as I am certain the free transfer would have been organised. To accuse a hotel of racism us absolutely ridiculous and as someone from UK working in Encounter I object and dismiss you absurd claim.
