Was it just completely forgotten about, does the owner just not care? I am wondering if someone is just putting off spending anything on this place in the hopes of selling it soon.Was at LaRonde last night, the place was packed but the hotel and elevator looked very tired and out of date.
Distinctive and elegant i.e. understated 1960s elegance is simply not in the equation - the current owners think along different lines -e.g. re-cladding the hotel in the national colours of Serbia because that is where you immigrated from.
