A Royal Arrival

Duration: 01:34

The hotel is expecting the arrival of foreign royalty, who want to occupy forty rooms – the entire 3rd floor.

There will be 27 female guests, with their women only security guards. No men will be allowed to step foot on the floor. Of the forty rooms, ten have to be cleared of all furniture to create space for private dressing rooms and dining rooms. The other bedrooms will be turned into kitchens. Two entire suites will be used just for storing shopping bags.
