Most memorable hospitality moment

My son’s 10th birthday at Hard Rock Café – his choice; I wasn’t so sure. We mentioned it was his birthday when we arrived and, at dessert time, the waitress brought over a cup cake with a candle on it. Special? Not until all the staff, and I mean ALL the staff – cooks, waiters and bar staff – circled our table and sang ‘Happy Birthday’. We’ve never forgotten it.
