I'm sure to have the odd mis-spell in this post. You don't pan someone else's work and get away with it ;-). Apostrophes and commas sprinkled through at random complement almost germanic sentence construction and the occasional incorrect word selection. I guess the same clear thinking that produced the text decided not to proof-read it.

The most obvious one, visitor's instead of visitors, is repeated twice but numerous other plurals are correct. I had the correct use of apostrophes drummed into me by my dad and numerous teachers, and I always wonder exactly how the mis-users decide when to use an apostrophe and when not to. There seems to be no rhyme or reason in it. And not to be picky Brian, but you said "The attraction in question is the fountain commissions by the Hyatt...." Shouldn't that be "commissioned"? ;-)
