LOOK: Sochi hotel gets its revenge

It's pretty evident that the hotel situation in Sochi wasn't adequately prepared for the onslaught of media set to descend on the Russian resort town. With so many IPhones in one place, every imperfection has immediately become excellent fodder on Twitter.

A quick refresher.

Last week we had "something very dangerous" in the water. We've also seen cramped bedrooms for the athletes and inexplicably cozy toilets. We've seen dog problems and even a pretty glaring flub in the Opening Ceremony. There was even a report that suggested Russia's government had set up video surveillance in the showers of various media members.

Just this morning, American bobsledder Johnny Quinn (he of getting-stuck-in-a-bathroom-fame) earned some getting-stuck-in-an-elevator fame.

And so on we go, with more hilarious Sochi problems. Bruce Arthur of the National Post brings us the latest.
