everyone can afford a designer

at the amalfi hotel in chicago, where you don't rent a room but a space, they don't have a concierge. they have an experience designer.
"Far from a typical concierge, an Experience Designer is like a close friend from college who can always set you up at the best tables and into the swankest clubs."
they also don't have ordinary housekeeping staff. no, they have ... comfort stylists:
"Check-out is at noon, we know that's early, but we need to ensure our comfort stylists have the opportunity to service the space."
that's almost too cynical to be taken seriously.
