I awoke on Friday morning, Dec. 6, 2013 about 3:00 am to use the toilet and noticed a smell of what I recognized as a nail polish remover smell, often Toluene. I got concerned as the odor became stronger and checked the hallway where the smell was much, much stronger. Now between worried and angry, before I called 999, I thought I'd check downstairs. I found a floor refinishing project underway in the front lobby with a worker in a gas mask! The night manager tried his best, but he was the face I had to vent to. This was a totally unacceptable situation, very dangerous. They have television messages to greet arriving guests in their rooms that could have been used to notify them of the upcoming work or perhaps they could have put up signs. I recommended a different contractor or a low VOC product applied more frequently. Here in the US, I would report them to the DEP or the EPA, but I will find the proper office to file my formal complaint, bless the internet. They're perhaps lucky I didn't empty the entire hotel with a call to emergency services. My wife is a big Facebook fan too, so watch for that, I'm sure. One hates to tell friends and fellow travelers of their trips and say "Nice place, but.....". Whoever made the decision to perform this service and the service company that decided on the chemicals and ventilation to be used should be disciplined. Too bad, Limerick needs as much good press as they can get.
