[LEO] Here you go.
[FRANK] Ah! Cheers, mate.
[FRANK] Hey ... I haven't seen you around the office the last couple weeks.
[LEO] Yeah, I've just come back from a business trip.
[FRANK] Oh, sorry. I forgot all about it. Uh, how was your trip?
@[LEO] Very productive. We got a lot done.
[FRANK] Oh, OK. Where did you stay?
[FRANK] Oh, the Essex Marmont!
[FRANK] Actually, it's on my short list. My 10-year anniversary's coming up.
[LEO] I was pleasantly surprised by the service.
@[LEO] Everyone looked after us. It couldn't be beat.
[FRANK] Wow, OK. I heard about the service was good. Um, how about the rooms?
[LEO] The rooms were just okay. Um, the cleanliness was so-so.
[FRANK] Oh, OK. So, disappointing. Um, anything stand out?
[LEO] I was pleasantly surprised by the fitness center. I got a great workout.
[FRANK] Um, hmm. I want to surprise her with something really nice.
[LEO] I was terribly disappointed with the location.
[LEO] It was very far from downtown, and we had to spend a lot of time connecting.
[FRANK] OK. Actually, I heard there's some great museums downtown, so ... probably wouldn't work out.
[FRANK] Hmm. OK. Well, thanks for the info. Um, we should get back to the meeting.
[LEO] Let's get back in.

Overall, it was a fantastic experience! The rooms were luxurious and spacious. The amenities were absolutely perfect.
The location can't be beat! It's right in the middle of the upscale shopping district.
I was terribly disappointed by the level of cleanliness /ˈklenlinəs/. The rooms smelled bad.
I was pleasantly surprised by the exceptional service we received. Everyone was pleasant and competent.
I really wasn't expecting the staff to be so unfriendly and incompetent.
We had a mixed experience here. The staff was lovely, but the hotel is in very poor condition. It needs new paint and carpet badly.
