Whilst a female colleague and I were preparing for a strategic planning session in a common room area, we were harrassed by the hotel management to vacate this general area as they close at 10pm. They are unable to offer us any alternative area to work in but our rooms. We are refusing to move from here, as neither of us are comfortable working in each other's rooms. The security company and the hotel manager arrived, and we have firmly refused to remove ourselves from the common room area. They have now contacted the police and have proceeded to lock us in. At this point we had to take a decision to stop working and to leave to avoid embarrassment for my company by being escourted from the premises.
We strongly believe that some form of action needs to be taken against the hotel and its management based on the humiliating way that we have been treated (Tourism Council Grading Authority or any other relevant authority)
