S’pore Hotel Went an Extra Mile to Decorate Room with Guest’s Idol’s Posters

What’s the extent you would go to tell the world how much you love your idol?

Some wear their faces, use an extravagant phone casing with their names, scribble their names all over their notebooks…

Come on, the list is endless.

According to The Straits Times, there was a man who asked for a photo of his idol’s face in his hotel room.

And the hotel went beyond that.

Here’s what happened

Australian Elliott Woolf was on his way to Singapore with his wife for a leisure holiday.

But things didn’t turn out well when his wife had an issue with her passport.

So Mr Woolf had to come to Singapore on his own first.

Then, his flight got delayed.

I’m sorry.

But when he entered his room at the Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza in Orchard Road, he got a huge surprise.

“I dropped my bags and noticed the laminated ‘Jeff Goldblum Welcomes Elliott’ photo collage,” Mr Woolf said.

He had sent an e-mail to the hotel, requesting for a photo of Jurassic Park actor Jeff Goldblum to be placed in his room.

When explaining what happened, Mr Woolf said: “I had received an e-mail from the hotel the week before we left, asking if we were interested in upgrading our room, or if we had any special requests.”

“I remembered seeing an article once where someone always asked for a photo of Ryan Gosling in their room when staying at a hotel, so for a laugh, I thought I’d give it a go, without really expecting anything to come from it.”

Mr Woolf added that both he and his wife are huge fans of the 65-year-old actor.

“It was so above and beyond what I’d requested that I couldn’t believe it,” he added.

“(The collage) is now actually hanging up in my house. It wasn’t even until I returned to the room later that night that I discovered other photos of Jeff scattered throughout the room. We left them up for our entire stay.”

33-year-old Mr Woolf shared his experience online and it immediately went viral.

Be it in the hallway, above the TV or even in the bathroom, there’s nowhere without a trace of the actor.

Good job, Marriott!

Not the first time

In 2016, someone asked for framed photos of Goldblum in his California hotel room.

In the year before, someone asked for a photo of Nicholas Cage in the movie Con Air.

Whoever said Singapore is boring?

I love how a simple action or thought can just immensely brighten up someone else’s day.
