Stressed executives asked to smash hotel rooms

A Spanish hotel chain ran a competition for stressed executives to let off steam in a fashion usually reserved for rock stars - by smashing hotel rooms.

NH Hotels allowed 30 people chosen by a team of psychologists to help demolish the interior of the 11-year old NH Alcala hotel in central Madrid as part of its refurbishment. The chosen 30, armed with mallet and hard hat, were allowed to destroy any part of the 146-room building, from bringing down walls to smashing windows.

The demolition took place on July 3. The executives, reportedly, enjoyed themselves immensely. We hope their stress levels improved!
