Fawlty Towers actor complains of treatment in RI hotel

Omni Providence Hotel

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) – British actor and comedian John Cleese, who once portrayed an inept hotel manager in the series “Fawlty Towers,”  is complaining about his treatment at a Rhode Island hotel.

Cleese tweeted Sunday to his 5.7 million followers that he was cold inside his room at the Omni Providence Hotel and that the hotel staff could do nothing to help him.

He later posted that his tweeting had worked and the hotel had fixed the problem.

The hotel told the Providence Journal that its engineering staff was dispatched to resolve the issue shortly after receiving Cleese’s complaint.
