Pic: It’s not every day a Dublin hotel receives a guest request for an Alfonso Ribeiro photo on the nightstand

If we were in charge at this unidentified Dublin hotel, we’d do the Tonto dance at this request and ‘jump on it’ immediately.

If we were in charge at this unidentified Dublin hotel, we’d do the Tonto dance at this request and ‘jump on it’ immediately.

We’re not privy to the inner workings of the hotel industry, but we can only imagine that those working in the industry have to put up with all sorts of annoying requests from demanding guests on a regular basis.

It must have come as a breath of fresh air, then, for an unidentified Dublin hotel to receive the following request through booking.com (all guests using the service can make guest requests) from an unidentified guest, who is obviously a huge fan of Carlton Banks on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. In fairness, who isn’t?

The guest above was obviously taking inspiration from a visitor to a Galway hotel last year who requested a framed picture of Marty Morrissey on her bedside locker, a request which was brilliantly granted.

Unfortunately all we know of the hotel in question in this case is that it’s somewhere in Dublin, but if anyone that works there happens to be reading this, we can only plead with you to grant this extra special request and send us on picture evidence of the framed picture (preferably with the guest in tow) that we will happily expose to the masses.

We even promise that we’ll give this little a number a go if you can help us out…
